    I have been working at Halliburton full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It’s a job. For me not worth having under their management. Not their rules although some are ridiculous.

    Cons

    From the start they treat you like a private in basic training. Not even a potential professional.

    Advice to Management

    Change the onboarding and management attitude towards new people and when that are leaders they wi treat people better.

    I have been working at Halliburton full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learning new skills, work is steady, great benefits, good department teamwork.

    Cons

    Once hired, your job title doesn't change in office job, despite proving yourself to be as competent as experienced co-workers. Same for pay equity, I do the same job, but make less, and have a lower job title. I do extra, give it my all, but no promotions or equity adjustments are authorized in my department.

    Advice to Management

    Allow equity evaluations to promote confidence in strong work ethic.

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

    Pros

    Decent benefits, fellow employees are honest and hard working.

    Cons

    When the wind shifts in the economy, don't trust them. Don't plan on retiring with Halliburton - they lay off very fast. There is no employer reliability, upper management is in "it" for themselves - "big bucks".

    Advice to Management

    Mid management is fine - it's the ones running the company that always throw the axe!

    good benefits, flexible work schedule, reasonable pay.

    Cons

    lots of bureaucracy, matrix organization so the interactions are complex.

    Advice to Management

    simple is better
