To Focus on Money and Not It's People
Specialist (Former Employee), Williston, NDJuly 8, 2014
Pros: plenty of hours to work if needed
Cons: not much of an employee focused company
Company is to money driven which gets in the way of taking care of it's employees. Spends to much time hiring and training new employees instead of taking interest in currently employees and managing the internal issues that would retain them and make the company even more profitable. .

Awful
Technical Professional, Field Engineer (Current Employee), Pampa, TXJuly 8, 2014
Pros: benefits, salary, work schedule, lots of down time for hobbies
Cons: nepotism, half of the management hardly has a ged, the other half is well educated leading to significant communication and managerial tensions.
Work/Life balance is better than most oilfield companies. For field engineers the 4 on 10 off isn't bad. There is no direct management over what you actually do, only in the paperwork you turn in. 90% of the job is unsupervised and is primarily handling day to day routines with crews that are staffed with a wide variety of characters, some great some – more... awful, and across the board there is no knowledge of how to manage others or projects. The engineer typically is left to clean up all the messes and ethical dilemmas left behind by the operations side without causing the account reps, customers, or business development to look into possible problems. If one or more departments puts the other under the microscope anticipate vulgar emails and phone calls from all parties, followed closely by everyone doing their ritual of stabbing at least two people in the back. This relationship of communicating between all the customers and departments causes alot of tension and being able to communicate effectively is critical. Working at Halliburton as a Field Engineer is all about navigating a minefield to make your job comfortable, your actual success has nothing to do with the quality of your efforts in this area or any of your efforts. You will succeed as an engineer if you are liked and apart of the inner circle, or "Good old boys club". Lots of hardworkers have quit due to this, they get into the inner circle and realize that no matter how hard they work and succeed or fail nothing impacts their actual standing as a good worker. Most of them eventually just give up and stop coming to work and they are still rewarded with responsibilities and opportunities to succeed. They typically just stop trying, and find other opportunities elsewhere because the lack of motivation to work is awful. – less

Productive; enjoyed; always busy but learnt a lot
Translator& Assistant of integration Manager (Former Employee), Tianjin, ChinaJune 21, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: short breaks, insurance
As it is a integration process, each and every day was busy and so many things to do and to make it HAL standard.
Good management and learnt a lot about 20 functions, such as F/A dept., HR dept., HSE, RES, Production, Marketing, Procurement, Logistics, Training, etc.
Co-workers with different personality but most of them are nice people.
The hardest – more... part of the job is the change, change from the legacy standard to HAL standard. Change is always tough but everybody was trying hard to help.
The most enjoyable part of the job is, being the bridge between people (interpretation between the English and Mandarin speakers) and learning about various functions. – less

Halliburton Profile
Geomechanics Consultant III (Current Employee), 1rst: Brasil - RJ / 2nd: México - CMPJune 14, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: compensation
The company is one of the biggest in the world with the HES policy very well defined, but the system to manager the employ's free time is really complex because the company has a deficient number of workers comparing the number of open jobs in a field and onshore inside the client's office.
I'm still working there, since 2008, some people will tell – more... me that isn't too much, but the true is that since 2008 nothing change, no better and no worst, just stagnant. – less
