    I have been working at Halliburton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Work life balance
    - Benefits (Other than cash)
    - Laid back attitude (Which is good and bad)
    - Great opportunities. Training is improving and opportunities are immense (Of course immediate managers play a big role like in any other company)
    - Great fellow employees. Warm and very accommodating.
    - Good executive leadership.

    Cons

    - The path to a management role is not well defined.
    - Strong email culture. To CYA or to gain manager's attention.
    - Lot of incompetent and immature managers at camp and regional levels.

    Advice to Management

    Do not see how many email an employee sends to gauge his/her worth or knowledge. This creates a bad working atmosphere where everyone is trying to impress management. We understand the world is not perfect and everyone cannot be great managers. However, the ratio of useless:great managers is very high in the company. People who work extra hours are probably not very efficient and in all probability are trying to impress their managers. Try to have a streamlined process to have smart managers at the top. Promote meritocracy. If the same trend continues for a few more years, we will ultimately have to do the clean up act and it might prove to be late and costly.

    Managing staff is rather loyal and democratic,
