    Senior IT Manager

    Senior IT Applications Analyst/Developer (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsA good stable organization, has come a long way to become stable and offers good total rewards. The organization has global footprint which allows staff to work with different cultures. Good transparency for job classifications and packages.

    ConsSenior Management is very protective to their positions; they do not offer a lot of vertical career development. International assingments are not offered for IT.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to have expand the offering of career development beyond local resources and allow for others to grow.

    My opinion

    Associate Tech Professional (Field Engineer) (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGood people to work with in the field. Decent accommodations. I was hired out school. Good place to start off at and learn the business. Halliburton has good safety expectations. If you like to travel, there are plenty off opportunities.

    ConsBad communication, Hard to get promotion, bad management. If you know somebody, you can move up fast, if not you're stuck Very short staffed. Bad training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you know a job is coming up, don't wait until the last minute to notify employees. There needs to be better communication as a whole. If you want to keep your employees, keep up with the competition's salary and day rate.

    Highly political

    Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsWork life balance, good proximity to suburbs in the west and south west of houston, away from downtown and galleria, competitive compensation

    ConsHighly political environment with very limited growth opportunities

    Advice to Senior ManagementIntroduce skip meetings to get feedback about mid level managers and focus on quality of work from an individual rather than candidate's good looks and talking ability.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Engineering Intern

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat work environment, friendly colleagues, tasks assigned seemed less challenging due to excellent training, good supervisor

    Technical Professional

    Technical Professional (Current Employee) Lafayette, LA

    ProsTime off schedule is great, flexible working hours within my department are nice. Direct management cares about employees and makes sure they are happy. Benefits are very good.

    ConsSometimes you have to work weekends offshore. Base pay could be a little higher. Having to be on call means it is very hard to schedule events without taking vacation for them.
