    Pros

    they give you the world from an employees perspective, no joke. any and all that you might need for your job duties / advancement within the company is no problem. advancement is well within reach if you out effort forward and try. they ask for 6 months before you try something else. within this 6 months youll have a pretty good idea of how frac works and all the job duties.

    Cons

    they own your soul while your on hitch. eat sleep halliburton. you have no time to think about what to make for dinner after you get home. better have it planned before you leave work or your eating fast food. starting pay isnt great, but with a huge turnover rate and everything this company provides for a new employee i wouldnt expect more. unsure of pay rates amongst higher up employees. you can get lost through the cracks if you dont take the bull by the horns. 2 weeks on 1 week off kinda sucks. but....... if you stick it out you've got options to change that schedule...... **be open an honest with everyone you work with, your with them more than your family.....

    Advice to Management

    tons of $ waste.... you see it everywhere. all of that could go to raises. maintenance and safety bonuses for people who take it seriously. pumps and doctors visits are not cheap....

    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.
