    I have been working at Halliburton full-time

    Pros

    Culture is phenomenal and the flexible work schedule is hard to beat.

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to market.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more instead of worrying about Wall Street and share repurchases for investors.

    I worked at Halliburton full-time

    Pros

    Money is great even though they pay less than most in the oil patch. In the MidCon there are a diverse number of issues to encounter, more than most regions in the US. Solving these issues is challenging and exciting.

    Cons

    Hours in the oil field is always the con. If you're desiring life-work balance, this isn't the industry to get into.

    Advice to Management

    Management was always great to me. It's unconventional like most other aspects of this industry and might be hard for snow flakes to take but I loved it.

    Pros

    Great place to work with very smart people with which to learn and collaborate.

    Cons

    Halliburton doesn't value the power of compensation. They will pass on an employee to keep the salary mean under fair market value.

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

    Pros

    Wthenonly positive about working here is they will help you get your foot into the oilfield with zero experience. I was able to get a CDL and experience and further my career. Free top notch hotel.

    Cons

    $15 per hour means your the least paid person on the frac pad doing the most work. Per diem is only $25 a day, and you doing get stage bonuses. They treat you like a #, not even like an employee. It’s on to the next # of your not 100%, 100% of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your workers what they deserve, give them a per diem that they can live comfortable off. We didn’t have time to cook. It’s hard to feed yourself decent food on $25 a day and manage to cover your travel expenses.

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

    Pros

    Very politically correct work environment. No cursing, off-color jokes, etc.

    Cons

    Promotions are seldom. More work continuously assigned due to no hiring to fill in vacated positions; even though there may not be enough time to complete them correctly. Off-shoring many accounting positions.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give, as it wouldn't be taken into consideration.

    Cons

    Just average pay. May lay people off during down turns.
