    I worked at Halliburton full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    when the oilfield was busy , overtime was available, policies and procedures are in place for a reason, Safety is number one, Great Management and able to climb the ladder to improve all aspects of your life

    Cons

    when the oilfield drops, so does everyone's jobs , when you put in so many hours and years of blood, sweat, and tears ... turn around and its all gone, no pension plan either

    Advice to Management

    Really the people that put every thing into making the company profits and make things happen, should be better taken care of when things slow down,,,, all them profits were made because of peoples pride in doing great things for the company,

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

    Pros

    Generally laid back professional atmosphere. Your ideas and input are important to the company and you will be rewarded for them. Great benefits and 401K. Beats the heck out of Hauling hay and roofing houses. Like my old boss always used to say. "You never made more for doing less in your whole life; have ya?" LOL

    Cons

    It's the nature of the oil business to get good and then bad every 2-3 years. Have rode out 7 big layoffs if 19 years. Very stressful and painful to see your friends go through it.

    Advice to Management

    Save money so we can focus on new technology during the down times and keep our employees!

    I have been working at Halliburton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Carrying the Halliburton badge is definitely a notch on the belt. Halliburton employees are regarded as very employable, just having worked for them. They set the industry standard for compliance.

    Cons

    Fragile industry, but anybody who has lived since the 80's should know that. Pay grade is much lower than the rest of the industry. However, consider yourself hired if you wish to go anywhere else. Lifestyle isn't so great, unless you're single with no family or have an understanding family. There's a mixture of all family structures working at Halliburton.
