    I worked at Landmark Graphics full-time

    Pros

    I was employee number 216 and started with the company in 1986. As a start-up, there was lots of hard work, but it paid well, with good benefits, and the teamwork was great. There work was always interesting and challenging and we were encouraged to be innovative problem-solvers. I worked there for 14.5 years and really enjoyed it. I have been gone since 2002, but many of my friends are still there. If you like challenging, interesting, hard work, and working with people, this might be the place for you.

    Cons

    In the mid-90s, there seemed to be more and more Brits in management, many of whom were rather condescending and over-bearing - but luckily not so much in the Customer Support area.
    If you don't like to work hard, don't enjoy working with clients, and don't like working in/with a team, this is probably not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of some of the Brits. They are not necessarily "smarter" because they have a "posh" accent.


  2. "Good work environment"

    I worked at Landmark Graphics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment however during my tenure senior management changed four times in a 3 year time span. So every few month methodologies and internal processes would change.

    Cons

    Constant swapping of senior managers, work from home was not allowed, internal tension between the development side and services.

    Pros

    You get a salary and vacation.

    Cons

    No growth potential, once you accepted the job, you're just a worker.
    Management will not pay for your training.

    Advice to Management

    Fair to your employee

    Pros

    Really liked working there, love the people and the culture. Pretty laid back most of the time.

    Cons

    Too many level of management, sometimes it's hard to get things done efficiently. Also, there is quite a few of political drama that goes along with the job.

    Advice to Management

    Too many level of management, sometimes it's hard to get things done efficiently. Should eliminate some of these levels, it's very inefficient.

    I worked at Landmark Graphics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    More work time flexibility compared to other Halliburton Services Line. However, that doesn't include work from home.
    Halliburton offers a lot of training, which is good. Budget for trainings have almost all been cancelled because of the oil market turmoil though.
    Pay is average, but benefits are good (unlimited sick days, employee stock purchase plan...).
    Halliburton and Landmark still benefit from a good reputation.

    Cons

    Lack of processes, lack of communication between the different team, no incitation to thrive and deliver high quality service to the customer.
    Each team has its own agenda, customers do not benefit from it..

    Advice to Management

    I don't think Landmark can afford the status quo in this current market situation.

    Pros

    Large company. Backed by larger stable mother company.
    Challenging software market with many directions.
    Long established leader and global presences

    Cons

    Challenging market, leads to many competitive influxes.
    Nature of global landscape requires customization to each region.
    Cross discipline understanding could be lacking by mother company.

    Advice to Management

    Have retroactive plans already in place before making key cuts.
    Strive to better understand all the cultures and disciplines within the areas and operation.

    Pros

    Really smart people at the bottom of the org chart.
    Great Benefits!!
    401(k) match cannot be beat!
    Above average compensation.

    Cons

    Halliburton needs to find better leadership for the top levels and keep them around for more than 2 year.
    If you

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to depend on a large offshore workforce, you need to add some accountability. Even if someone is 1/3 as expensive as a permanent hire, they still need to perform at least 1/3 the level (or more to make up for the inconvenience and overhead).
