I worked at Halliburton full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits which include 401k, Stock Plan, Health and Life Insurance at a low rate
Great people to work with and cultural diversity
There are managers who actually do care about their employees and the company
Available tuition assistance; if approved by manager

Cons

Manager discretion on who gets tuition reimbursement for college
Typical politics in a corporation with some that enjoy their "power"
Some work that moved overseas for cheaper costs
Hard to move into other positions (recent career change)
Not enough employees to carry the load so current employees are overloaded

Advice to Management

Figure out a way to add resources to the departments who need it and bring some of the jobs back to the US.

    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.

    I worked at Halliburton full-time (More than a year)

    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!!!!
