I have been working at Halliburton full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good opportunities to work with very smart people and to make a difference. More people are starting to see the importance of interaction design. The benefits are decent enough as is the pay. Work life balance is good.

Cons

Management still shows its hardware, big company roots. Corporate culture is definitely conservative in many offices, so don't expect Google style perks and freedom. Typical big company administrative overhead and occasional upper management edicts which make little sense tactically.

Advice to Management

Look at high tech companies and see what works for them in terms of culture and flexibility. Trust your people more.

    No opinion of CEO

    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
