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

Pros

they take care of you. give you a company car, pay for your gas, meals (while you're on the job), put you in a hotel if you need to be in one. The money is ok.you get a base salary of about 57,000 and then after 8 or so months you start making bonuses. So basically after your first year you start making significantly more than the base

Cons

Very very very long hours. I stayed on field for 37 hours straight. Very high pressure job. Very boring. Very lonely job. Very unpleasant work environments. Your life becomes about work so you have to be realy really interested in the upstream industry.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Halliburton full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Career advancement in some areas of the company is good
    In general all the people are great to work with
    Able to travel the world and go places I never thought I would ever visit: Middle East, Russia, Brazil, Norway, etc.

    Cons

    If you aren't part of the top 10% that management wants to promote, you won't see much career advancement. Management doesn't care about the people, it's more about hitting quarterly numbers at any cost. Too many layoffs, leaving the rest with more work and no extra pay. Not a work life balance company. You are expected to work late nights and weekends.
