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

    Pros

    Hourly employees in oil will make more money than almost any other sector.

    Cons

    Once you switch over to salary, you simply don't get raises. It doesn't matter if you're the single best employer in your category in an entire region. It's gotten so bad that promotion and increase of responsibility for no raise is becoming the norm.

    A good place to build a resume, but don't build your 10 year around Halliburton.

    Advice to Management

    Do whatever you want - but when you don't pay people well, they become a job hunter.

    Pros

    Good experience and good training programs. Good job stability when a downturn hits.

    Cons

    Not fairly compensated for the long hours and the long drives you make to location. Long drives to location. Work in the middle of nowhere. Possibly weeks from home at a time. Almost no vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Give more vacation and flexibility to schedule.

    I have been working at Halliburton full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and generally job security with exception of oil and gas down turns. Generally good potential to grow in positions if willing to move. There is enough latitude in making the job and adding value in the direction you enjoy. Generally management does a good job with short term vision and expenditures but is aggressive causing highly cyclical ups and downs. It's generally a place where moderate to above average performance will provide a secure and well paying job to one where very hard work with high networking and willingness to move will provide long term upward mobility.

    Cons

    Large corporate company with top down culture and some level of corporate iniatives that are aligned in what needs done but can lack alignment in how to do it. management can prescribe too much where front line should provide prescription of needs tailored for right fit to meet goals. The company is lacking in recognition of performance and celebrating success.

    Advice to Management

    Work to adjust culture from one of manager ideals to one of managers are a service to front line employees. Higher focus on people development and people skills as the company culture. Reward and recognize people for performance more frequently and the correct people for the job completed. Corporate initiatives and processes rewarded after front line execution.

    Pros

    An honest days pay for an honest days work. Excellent benefits. When its busy you can get as many hours as you possibly want and they always pay. Weeks off are great.

    Cons

    The hours are LOOONG. You are gone all the time working 17, 18 often more hours a day. I've had 28 hour long shifts. Being outside in ND or WY in the dead of winter can be brutal as well but you can dress for that a little bit. Its an unstable market as is anything in the oil and gas industry.

    Advice to Management

    None
