Oil and gas CO = long hours and good money.
Sperry Drilling Services/MWD Engineer (Former Employee) –  Yukon, OKMay 18, 2017
Long hours, good, money, good benefits. Hard work and plenty of it. If it's hot, you're boiling and if it's cold, your thankful. However, I couldn't expect momma to raise the kids by herself.
Pros
Pay and benefits.
Cons
Never going home.

Halliburton has been a great company
MultiChem Sr Service Manager (Current Employee) –  Kilgore, TXMay 18, 2017
Over the years Halliburton has been a great company to work for. Recently it seems to be focusing on a younger diverse generations and skipping over the tenured, experienced people. Taking them for granted it seems.

Long hours offshore but great company and work.
Senior Field Professional (SFP) (Former Employee) –  New Iberia, LAMay 13, 2017
Worked in Gulf of Mexico division. Work at the shop was relatively slow paced 40 hour week unless you were preparing for a job and it could range upwards of 70. Same when you were offshore. If you were working it wasn't irregular to work over 24 hours. But there was a lot of downtime in between. The jobs ranged in time from a couple days to a couple months and you were on call all the time so you never know when you will be working.

The job is tough and there is a very steep learning curve. Very rewarding work though. Heavy emphasis on safety culture to the point where a lot of extra time is devoted to very tedious tasks and paperwork. LOTS of paperwork.

Management was ok but worsened once the dip in oil prices. Management was shuffled around and quality of decision making and team management dropped dramatically with an air of "or else" attitudes rising. Overall management at the location was poor with checks and balances needed across sub managers.
Pros
Great benifits and tons of overtime oportunity
Cons
Always on call and sub par management
