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

    Pros

    I’ve been a police officer for 17 years. I will do whatever it takes to get the job done and make sure everyone goes home to their families safe.

    Cons

    I don’t know any challenges for working with Halliburton. All I can do is learn how to do the job and do it to the best of my ability

    Advice to Management

    I am a police officer and a pilot, and up to any challenges thrown my way. I’m used to long hours at work and shift work. I’m trying to secure a great future so my wife and little girl can have everything they need. We as police officers have been under paid for way too long.

    Stop the micro-managing. People in the field are like cats. The closer and harder you hold them, the more they fight to get out and will do anything to do it.
