    Pros

    The benefits are great. You have ample resources to network with at all levels.

    Cons

    Not a lot of consistency when it comes to management across the multitude of product lines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Operate like one company versus operating as many smaller companies that are tied together.

    I worked at Halliburton as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    By far the best people I have worked with. Everyone seemed happy to be there and was extremely helpful with everyone else's projects. No one had beef with anyone else, and my manager seemed genuinely interested in everyone's well-being. Also, there's a big push for health and fitness at Halliburton. Some of that might be specific to the Houston headquarters location though.

    Cons

    Less pay than "big oil" (Shell, Chevron, Exxon,etc.), but still a very competitive salary that you really can't complain about.

    I worked at Halliburton as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    All the perks of working at a large company - cafeteria, on-site gym, day care etc.
    Good working environment - people are willing to help out

    Cons

    Hard to accomplish things w/ the amount of paperwork. Not much room for growth within the company - always hire vacancies in management from outside

    I have been working at Halliburton as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    As an intern, received a project that had substantial business impact. Was expected to forge my own direction/process to complete the project. Site managers are very supportive of the SCMP program. Advancement is based on job performance, not just to boost diversity numbers.

    Cons

    To advance, forget about work/life balance. Business needs precede personnel development or prior promises made. Living conditions for interns aren't ideal, and are not fully paid for, contrary to the offer letter. SCMP interns are segregated from the rest of the intern pool, so making friends while working is hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The safety culture is strongest in the office, where there is the least need of it. The manufacturing facilities and warehouses are not of the same mindset.

    I worked at Halliburton as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    the benefit is very good. Applicable to a lot of benefits such as retirement, saving. A lot of activities to learn about the company and develop network.

    Cons

    Only provide a certain amount of housing reimbursement instead of a hotel or apartment.
    It is very troublesome for people come from other area to find somewhere to live.
