I have been working at Halliburton full-time (More than a year)

Pros

-My advise: come in, get a booster for career then leave for a job that would pay 150% more. Or, if you are senior to your career, this is a great place to come and retire.
-Great career booster and resume material.
-Great retirement plans.
-No employee ever gets fired, even if he/she is horrendous at what he/she does.

Cons

-Extremely high turnover. As soon as you build a relationship, that person quits for a better job.
-Unhappy place to work at. Everyone seems so depressed/ unmotivated.
-Low pay, almost zero chance of advancement.
-No worklife balance. Though never spoken, working evenings and weekends are almost expected and is a common practice.

Advice to Management

Need to decrease that attrition rate. Need to have more attractive offering for the younger generation employees, as all your baby-boomers are retiring soon.

    I have been working at Halliburton full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Certain employees are "identified" as high performer, and get multiple promotions within short career term. Layoffs of good employees & technical staff are rare. Most people who are eventually laid off usually are lower performer, or jobs becomes redundant. A lot of contented employees that stay in company for greater than 30 years, which is rare in oil industry.

    Cons

    Compensation is low. If you are one of those non-identified employees, you will more than likely sit on the same position for years, until you seek your way out. Good thing is Halliburton is big enough that you can jump from one product line to another with little issue.

    Advice to Management

    Promote lateral movement of employees, to not just sit stale at the same position for years.

    Pros

    Corporate appears to be a real, live, grown up company. Salary is not terrible and until lately, overtime was plentiful!

    Cons

    Field locations run by many unprofessional, incompetent individuals who merely made their way up the ladder by friends and favors. Promotions largely given based upon the buddy system and harrassment and discrimination are prevalent although most employees fear for loss of employment and as such, keep it under wraps. HR does not offer the support it should to employees. DO NOT work for Halliburton field camps!

    Advice to Management

    Somebody should really look in on the kids....they are making a mess of your house!!!!
