I have been working at Halliburton full-time (more than 3 years)


Hmm... Pros? They find some nice people. Lots of mindless busy work to zone out to. Pay is OK, but no advancement unless you're cherry picked, which is almost never.


Frequent and random layoffs of good people, way too many systems, no order, lots of propaganda and self back-patting. Very little recognition for a good job, little enforcement on regs because the are too many misplaced and made up rules. Imagined self importance. Like a buzzword poster will change the amount of accidents. Always trying to hide illegal things behind carefully crafted words to make it not look so bad. Tightwad budget for things like necessary travel. No transparency. Extreme turnover. No inspiration for education. Bosses will block your movement to another dept. even when they're not supposed to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Institute one master system to organize personnel and documents. Not 100+ systems for days entry. Can't find anything. Also, allow telecommutes!! Keep up with today if you want to keep your peons. Look to companies outside oil for inspiration. Treat your managers with RESPECT instead of bullying them and expecting 24/7 unpaid service. Too many overpaid VPs. Quit auto deleting everyone's emails like a massive paper shredder...Dumbest system ever...unless you're a lawyer. Quit basing the raise of the individual on the department as a whole. Success should be celebrated, not rubber stamped.
