    Pros

    There are tons of opportunites at Halliburton if you're fortunate enough to be on the right radars. Internal movement was often about who you know.

    Cons

    Lack of flexibility with schedule. The bonus was completely at the CEO's whim, even though they tried to justify it with some formula which I don't think even a person with a degree from MIT could comprehend.

    Advice to Management

    Make bonuses a percent of salary like everyone else. Pay better, be more flexibly and you'll have more retention - which will save you money in the long run.

    I have been working at Halliburton full-time

    Pros

    Fair benefits, interesting, smart, friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    A top executive recently went on a campaign/office tour to alert employees that management is monitoring employee hours (by badge time in/out) to ensure all employees are in the office working for 9 hours a day (includes lunch). Employees were firmly informed that those who do not comply will be terminated. Quotes from the meeting: "All employees are easily replaceable." "Halliburton does not have a work at home policy." At one meeting, one employee posed the question "I routinely have to work at home to collaborate with employees on the other side of the globe. What then?" The response was "That's your job." So, any hours worked at home is your contribution to the company.

    Furthermore, any doctor's appointment needs comes from an employees sick time (vacation time if child is sick.) If you are looking for a place to work that is progressive, trusting, and inspiring.. this is no the company for you.
