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

Pros

Halliburton has a good reputation, relatively stable job, pay is good compared to other industries, company is profitable

Cons

Nationally: Training is a shadow of its former self, pay is not competitive, opportunities to move out of the field are no in line to what is promised during recruitment. Any company that makes you sign a 2 year bonus-repayment contract is having serious retention problems for a reason

South Texas: Office environment resembles daycare, expected to work excessive hours when not in the field (in addition to working in the field), constant lies and BS from local management.

My advice - if you're a recent grad take any other job offer that comes your way

Advice to Management

Everyone knows you refuse to increase pay, so focus on employee satisfaction in other ways
