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

    Pros

    I have worked for the company for 12+ years now. I love the people I work with either directly or indirectly. Many long hours but would even like more. Very good opportunities to travel both abroad and locally. Pay isn't that great at first but does go up quite a bit the longer you are willing to invest in the company.

    Cons

    Low starting pay, but goes up quickly if you put in the time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep you head on about your employees training.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are good and the hours are flexible. The vacation policies and employee stock purchase plans are good benefits. It is such a large company that it is very easy to go unnoticed for extended periods of time. Higher levels receive bonuses when times are good.

    Cons

    The company is very management and process heavy. Processes are kept even when they do not create value. No one disputes processes or current design methods. If you want your career to progress you have to be diligent in exploring opportunities because management isn't going to help.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to express an interest in your employees. Currently, quality work is not rewarded and because of that most of the employees are looking for opportunities outside of the company. The only employees who are not looking are those who rarely do any work, let alone quality work, yet continue to keep their jobs.
