I worked at Halliburton

Pros

The pay is good with per diem etc. and benefits package

Excellent training if you can make it through their military regimen

Cons

Pay does not reflect long hours nor competency they squeeze anything and everything out of you...

You will never have quality nor a work life balance as long as you work here...

They own your life when your there. You can never give enough. The first couple of months you think its attitude..., but you begin to realize your a pon. A means for them to make more money. In fact in training I was told they hire engineers so field mistakes could be solved by laying blame. Their is no need for engineers out their. Everything can be accomplished form base and in some locations it has been tested...

They say you have rotation of days off lol... they will call you in...trust me...

They preach one thing about safety and do another... They show they don't care...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lighten up. No one should ever have the mindset live to work, but work to live. Make the work surroundings more enjoyable. Family always comes first. If my were preparing to have a baby understand I am going home to see my wife and new child. If my wife or family member is sent to the ER I am leaving the field to meet them. I was told by a manager that my family needs to understand the requirements of a field engineer. Missing my baby being born and my wife being sent to the ER are not sufficient excuses for leaving work. Grow some integrity and morals...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employees have to be treated better. We are all physically and emotionally drained from the work-load you are throwing us into. Hire more employees to help us out. The company always preaches safety, yet you make us catch job, after job for three to four days at a time without any sleep.... how is that safe? Pay should be based on local efforts not on the global scale that it currently is. Our yard is bringing in record profits, as it has for the last few years, yet the employees see nothing for their hard work. All we get is criticism from management telling us we should be doing more.

    Pros

    stable company, strong support for family value, the CEO does excellent job in my view

    Cons

    because it is drilling company, software is support role, it is not good place for software developer to have career path, might exception for landmark, but not for others.
