I have been working at Halliburton full-time for more than a year

Pros

You come across a lot of great people (the ones who haven't quit or are on the outs to quitting). You also build a great business network while speaking to different carriers.

Cons

Management tries to run the show when they have no idea what's going on.
They expect you to work 24/7, 365, with no extended appreciation and lack of help.
When you are a salaried employee and if you don't have manager after your title, they will run you INTO the ground.
They claim to care about "family" "work life balance" and "good compensation"... I was promised many things and it was all false.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you put INTEGRITY in your core values, show it. I get that Halliburton is a HUGE international company and all of your employees are just a number, but your camps lose out on so many good employees because of lack of integrity. It seems as though it's who you know within the company to get promoted, and some managers do a lot of butt kissing to get to the top... even if they are entirely incompetent.

    I have been working at Halliburton as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    A lot of work available for you once you are with the company. Not for slackers

    Cons

    Long hours and a lot of work ( I expected this and have no problem with it)
    More work than life, so you really should consider this before making a decision

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I suppose more 'away from work' time will definitely benefit the employees.
    Happy employees = More Productive Employees = Happy Customers = More Business/Profit
