    I have been working at Halliburton full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Lot's of hours and good benefits. Had a great boss and lead and a nice team.

    Cons

    Schedule makes it very difficult to have a family life/marriage. Low base pay, although plenty (actually more) hours at time and a half. It's really the schedule though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the unnecessary hours and pay a higher wage. The company pays the same money out, gets the same work done, employee spends more time at home. Everyone fat and happy.

    Pros

    Company's first value is people, employees. Training programs are high level and you can pass them in different countries.

    Cons

    Benefits are ok, company cares of it's employees. But it depends on managers who are qualified and know what to do.

    Pros

    Lots of room to learn, lots of opportunities to advance in your career and it's all in your hands if you are willing to put the work in.

    Cons

    Compensation is not that great when compared with the competitors, which is some people leave. On the other hand the benefits are much better than other companies and the health insurance is the best!

    Halliburton Review

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Halliburton

    Pros

    C level management communicates direction the company is headed in clear succinct terms.

    Cons

    Resource constrained, e.g., difficult to acquire resources on projects when those resources are committed 100% to operational tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure lower level managers are sufficiently trained/aware of human resources policies and procedures...

    I have been working at Halliburton full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    family-friendly, work life balance, challenging work, great Houston campus. When the market is up, plenty of budget for training, travel, etc.

    Cons

    layoffs happen, budgets get cut on a whim, sometimes management is obtuse. It's not a place you want to work in a downturn.
