I have been working at Halliburton full-time (more than an year)

Pros

I enjoyed working with Halliburton, I had great team mate and managers. They get up to speed by going to well sites as a second hand at first, then you are by your own.

Cons

They can do better in training part. You have to ask for it many times. They will not come to you and tell you go to take a course.

    I worked at Halliburton full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They own a significant share of the O&G services market... so they'll survive no matter what they do wrong. Decent benefits. In some ways, a very innovative company.

    Cons

    Halliburton is, basically, a "neck down" company... as opposed to say Apple as an example of "neck up" company. The real cash cow is from hard, dirty work in the middle of nowhere... muscle, not brains.
    Each PSL (division if you will) is autonomous and therefore consistency is almost non-existent. Land in the right PSL and you'll have a good job and a pretty good experience... wrong one, and it can be a real drag. Corporate is weak and seems to be a dumping ground for those who couldn't fit in at a PSL. I worked in Corporate and it was pretty hard to stay positive... a LOT of slackers just filling space until they retire and a lot of contractors with no motivation to do anything but make their billable hours last as long as possible. Some of the facilities are just dumps and the location I was posted was nicknamed "Halcatraz" because it resembled a prison in almost every way. Not a real motivator driving in each morning... but nice to see in the rearview.
    Oh, and beware... the culture is one of "get along at all costs then backstab when the opportunity arises". You can stay forever if you never upset anyone or fail to "fit in"... by, for example, pointing out they are preventing progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop shuffling the deck chairs and start putting management in place who truly care about delivering and assembling top staff to do so. A PMO manager who has never managed a project... but was just do for his next shuffle... really?
