    Pros

    Pay, experience, structure, KPI, safe,

    Cons

    Lots of hours, poor local management.

    Advice to Management

    Change culture to bring in young blood. A lot of older guys going on "This is the way we have always done it" and not necessarily thinking for new solutions.

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

    Pros

    Hourly employees in oil will make more money than almost any other sector.

    Cons

    Once you switch over to salary, you simply don't get raises. It doesn't matter if you're the single best employer in your category in an entire region. It's gotten so bad that promotion and increase of responsibility for no raise is becoming the norm.

    A good place to build a resume, but don't build your 10 year around Halliburton.

    Advice to Management

    Do whatever you want - but when you don't pay people well, they become a job hunter.
