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

    Pros

    Great system for raise/promotion. Good benefits package and very steady work for the time period I was there.

    Cons

    You're treated a bit like a number when you're new. However, if you learn to adhere to the Halliburton system, you can do very well for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Include the ambitious new-hires in the decision making discussions for often. It helps to increase the learning curve dramatically when they are hearing about the bigger picture from the start.
