    Lots of smart people lead by inconsistent management. Too many offshore developers and QA.

    Pros

    Really smart people at the bottom of the org chart.
    Great Benefits!!
    401(k) match cannot be beat!
    Above average compensation.

    Cons

    Halliburton needs to find better leadership for the top levels and keep them around for more than 2 year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to depend on a large offshore workforce, you need to add some accountability. Even if someone is 1/3 as expensive as a permanent hire, they still need to perform at least 1/3 the level (or more to make up for the inconvenience and overhead).

    Great Company to start your career with in the oil industry, not necessarily a place to build a career .

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Houston, TX

    Pros

    Great opportunity to network especially while being a onsite consultant. Industry leading technology and training on the technology.

    Cons

    Management does not compensate or rate you by revenue generation instead by personal relationships. Training is always hard to fit in your schedule when you are billable for long term contracts. Internal relationships with co-workers and managers are almost non-existent especially when you are consulting offsite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions, bonuses and salary increase should be given fairly to proven consultants. More interaction and onsite visits by management would help accomplish this.

    Current Employee - Product Architect in Houston, TX

    Pros

    Work hours are reasonable (around 40 / week). Can work from home if needed. Hours are flexible. Benefits are okay. Work environment is pretty good in general. Quite a few good people from diverse backgrounds. Good to have an office, and the tools (computer, LCDs, software tools) are generally available.

    Cons

    Fair amount of politics. Old timers don't realize that things have changed and they can't keep on doing the same things as before. You are working for Halliburton. Halliburton isn't an evil empire, but it is a large bureaucracy. As elsewhere, there are plenty of people in management who shouldn't be there. And, like elsewhere, people are playing political games.

    Management doesn't seem to realize that you need to invest in products in order to do a good job. Some projects are understaffed and some resources (like travel to the other centers) are in short supply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be nice to have some of the good upper management stay around for a while. That and realize that you are competing against the oil companies in terms of benefits

    Former Employee - Product Marketing Manager  in  Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Product Marketing Manager in Houston, TX

    Pros

    The salary offered was fair. Their benefits are pretty decent. With the price of oil this ridiculously high, oil companies have tons of cash to spend on Landmark's products. However, they don't really seem to be lining up...

    Cons

    The company is owned by Halliburton, so you have to deal with all the negative aspects and associations that come along with that. It's located in TX, so if you're used to working in a diverse environment, you may want to think twice about signing up. There is no opportunity for equity participation (stock options), which is rare for a technology company.
