    Pros

    Halliburton benefits are some of the best in the industry.. Salary starts low but once you are in can build up really fast. Opportunities for advancement abound.

    Cons

    Salary starts out low. Like any other Oilfield Services company you have to be willing to work "oilfield hours" this isn't an m-f 8 to 5.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people that are in the trenches. They know what is really going on. You do not always know what is best just because you did it 20 years ago.

    Pros

    Company has a very good reputation and provides good benefits. You work with nice and friendly co-workers and bosses.

    There is some politics in the company. If oil/gas market goes down there is some chance that you could be laid off.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to move around. The benifits are just as good as any place I've seen. These guys are everywhere

    Cons

    Getting noticed is rough. The HR department isn't really accessible. It's like pulling teeth with them. A pension plan could bring more life to the company seeing how the competitors have one.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to hold people down. If someone is trying to better themselves, it should be recognized not ignored. Thank you

    Pros

    I love children of all ages, the job helped me expand my love for children with teaching. Everyday was always something new and exciting and I loved watching the children grow.

    Cons

    I did not like the benefits the job offered and the management there was not successful. It was too unorganized and nothing was ever done until last minute.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to management would be to work on time and commitment and order. Try to be more consistent and organized.
