Not what I expected
Supply Chain (Current Employee), Houston, TXJune 26, 2014
Cons: health benefits are the worst i've experienced at any company
I joined with high hopes, however the role, organization and opportunities changed completely within the first 3 months, and have me questioning what I joined.

No real forward thinking, or stomach to make some long overdue changes in approach and personnel.

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

Pros: laid back in the office, good pay, good people
Cons: field work is a lot of "hurry-up and wait", expect to drive a lot
10 days on, 4 days off. 24/7 on call for jobs. Good learning experiences, everything from designing frac fluid recipes to operating frac equipment. Management is great, the managers here take good care of their employees. Hardest part of the job is working 12 hour days, potentially 10 days at a time. Most enjoyable part of the job is the freedom of – more... the job when you are not on call. Culture here is very laid back. – 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

Oil Field Life
Lead MWD Field Engineer (Current Employee), Houston, TXJune 4, 2014
Pros: compensation
Cons: no personal life, hard on family
Oil Field isn't for everyone, in fact I would venture to say that most that get in quickly get out due to family or various other reasons. Halliburton MWD's are much like most other MWD companies in that the work is usually steady with some slow periods and some where you work for three months and don't see home more than 2 days before you are back – more... at another three months. It takes some adjusting to the culture but it's not a bad way to earn a living for those who don't mind. Halliburton generally takes care of their people and have yet to convert to hourly instead of day rates. – less
