    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.

    Local management fosters an environment where racism and sexism are prevalent. If you are a minority or a female you will have a hard time.

    Pros

    Good benefits and decent amount of money

    Cons

    No balance between work and life

    Advice to Management

    Management needs training on how to deal with different types of personalities between employees. Leave favoritism aside and draw a line of respect. Management should not get involved in the personal life of employees.

    Pros

    Good benefits, some good people excellent opportunity

    Cons

    When they decide to let you go due to the down turn there is NO compassion what so ever treat like a lowly dog. My boss didn't even have the guts to face me he laid me off over the phone. That's the new generation of young guys they fast track to management they have no clue how to be a leader

    Advice to Management

    Lean on and keep your senior people they have the knowledge and experience to help pull you through

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

    Pros

    Good money, everything paid for, extensive training, a lot of routes to move up when oil prices aren't crashing. Great opportunities for those who want to become Vice Presidents and shoot people. Good bennies.

    Cons

    Awful hours. Worst oilfield wages in the Bakken. Crashing oil prices. Poor environmental practices.
    "The McDonalds of oilfield companies" was a common expression.

    Advice to Management

    Don't buy Baker Hughes when your employees are leaving in droves b/c of poor wages. Y'all are a clever bunch, I must admit.
