    I worked at Halliburton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company credit union bank had excellent rates.

    Cons

    You are a number, working in unfit conditions with ever changing pay for management that spends ever moment trying to stab you in the back. No business ethics. No room for advancement. No consistent work schedule. Field hands not invited to company events. Terrible HR. Bloated management structure. Company self insured health insurance does not cover autism regardless of state laws.

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

    Pros

    Beautiful corporate campus, good pay and capable colleagues. These comments refer to the corporate headquarters at Northpark in Houston, Texas.

    Cons

    Slashed way too many good people due to poor management. Senior management cannot be trusted. Company practices are unprofessional and border on unethical. Avoid working here if you can.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent and practice what you preach. Although you cannot control market conditions, you can control your ethics and integrity...and treat employees with respect. You may just need something from the people you step on.

    Pros

    You get paid pretty well..

    Cons

    Unorganized and untrained management. The company is so large you become a name on a piece of paper not an actual person. They use you for everything you have. Common to work 16 hour days for 2 weeks on.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring engineers as managers. They are completely untrained to be management and most of them are horrible leaders.
