    I have been working at Halliburton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A lot of very knowledgeable people work here, and most are very willing to share their knowledge and teach others. The immediate coworkers are also great - more "work friends" than just coworkers. Hal also provides plenty of training opportunities and networking within the company. Benefits are above decent, though they have been impacted by the recent downturn.

    Cons

    There can be favoritism shown by some managers, which is very hard to fight. Halliburton is also all about "owning your career," which oftentimes results in little management support for helping employees identify areas of strengths and weaknesses and advancement opportunities. This wouldn't be an issue if management was willing to help the employee when they ask, rather than using it as justification to hold them back.

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

    Pros

    Not an office environment, very hands-on, autonomy, no boss, lots of troubleshooting, very individual job (not team), everyone does the same job so do not have to worry when go on vacation that you will be contacted.

    Cons

    Work a lot! 12-hour shifts, 7-days a week.

    Advice to Management

    Having a schedule would alleviate job hardship.

    Pros

    Large corporation with diverse teams and multitude of business products. Great facilities with amenities for employees. Visible leadership that is consistently engaged with employees.

    Cons

    No work from home opportunities. Recent revaluation of job duties removed bonus potential for many middle managers, this is possibly changing in the future, but greatly impacted moral.
