    Pros

    good pay most co workers are cool

    Cons

    don't really have a schedule very poor work/life balance job security very dependent on oil prices rush people through training so a lot of people in field don't know what they are doing

    Advice to Management

    It'd be really good to see an attempt at balancing work/life. I was either working way way too much or i had a full month off. and there were multiple times when i got less that 24 hr heads up that i would be out of the state for more than a month

    Pros

    Decent pay, lots of locations. A good way into the industry. Lots of blue stuff if you want it.

    Cons

    You are a number.very not a person. I mean you litterl have an employee number and when they lay you off it gives your number instead of your name.

    Advice to Management

    Retention is bad because halliburton treats their employees better. People should be investments and not all treated like temps.
