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

Pros

Pay and benefits are good

Cons

You are nothing more than a commodity. Do a great job it won't matter.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees like people not machines! You ask why people leave but you don't want to change anything.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Halliburton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Poor work environment, bad culture, old school mentality, work 40 plus hours without recognition or reward, low salary (raises minimum 2-4% even when company does well), no bonus or stock given unless you are a manager or above. Not a good environment for working mothers.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate some reward program such as bonuses to ALL employees since every employee contributes to the profits the company continues to make. Hire more people so that there is a back up for someone when they take off and so one person is not constantly doing 2-3 people's jobs. Incorporate 9/80's or something like it as your peers do. You will not retain good people if you do not change the upper management mentality to only reward at the top level. I gave the company 7 years and finally decided to leave because nothing changed for the better. It's 2014... not 1985.

    I have been working at Halliburton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are not too bad.

    Cons

    Political. Big, slow and resistant to change. Lots of inefficiencies in the system. Amazing still can survive. If not change, will suffer same fate as dinosaurs, sooner or later.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the Fat (not the bottom folks but the FAT that floats at the top layer)
