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

    Pros

    I worked in the technology center in Houston. Very good facility, and work environment. wasn't overloaded with work.
    Great fitness center.

    Cons

    Benefits.
    Risk working in the Oil industry with its downturns.
    No good directions or proper guidance from Team Lead or the direct manager .
    Strong matrix org. (you have many managers or direct reporters)
    No induction trainings when you join.
    Lack of Career growth opportunity, you should expect to take years and years till you reach the senior level, and another ages in the senior level.
    No compensations when laying off & No appreciation..Just kick you out immediately.

    Advice to Management

    proper induction for new hires.
    better benefits & salaries.
    proper training plan.
    better guidance & directions for the employees
    when laying off, treat your affected employees in appropriate manner. What anyone in that situation would like to hear is 'Thank you' for your service ..that is it.

    I have been working at Halliburton full-time

    Pros

    Honestly I truly recommend anyone to work here. I am always impressed by the work culture and support. I've been working here for 7 years and I love it.

    Cons

    On downturns like in any other oil and gas company work load increases but it is manageable. You just need a positive attitude and support as much as you can your team and managers.

    Keep doing a good job, all my 5 managers have been great and besides professional and smart they have been kind, patient and are great people.

    Pros

    Great team, great management, great benefits, lifelong friendships established. Good pay.

    Cons

    There were good managers and bad managers. Some focused on helping with attaining goals and others wanted to keep you locked in a box. The oil industry is cyclical, so there were multiple lay-offs's and a lot of good people were let go.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing.
