CLIENT OWNED EQUIPMENT SPECIALIST (Former Employee), IraqMay 9, 2014
Pros: all pros everything i need was there
I enjoyed working for the Client (Military) it was a life experience for me. I was introduce to many cultures while in Iraq working with Local National and other Nationalities from abroad. We had 12/7 work days a week which was fine for me. My co-works and I would have bar-b-ques at least once or twice a week sometimes i didn't want to leave for R/R.

Stay Away
Equipment Operator (Former Employee), Odessa, TXApril 30, 2014
Pros: new equipment
Cons: high turnover rate of upper management
Stay away very low pay compared to other companies alike. I believed they moved guys up to fast before knowing exactly how to operate very dangerous equipment. While working you more and more with no sleep.

Just avoid Sperry Drilling Division
SDL (Current Employee), Broussard, LAApril 27, 2014
Pros: get to work with some very good people in the field, very interesting job, a very good place to learn
Cons: management does not care about you, always on call, even when you're supposed to be off, they will try to block you from transferring to other divisions
Compared to the other divisions of Halliburton, you get treated like garbage. High turnover rate. Most people are just looking for the next best thing.

However, you will get to be part of the most complex projects. You will learn a lot about all aspects of drilling. Very good place to gain the experience needed to move on to better things.

At the end of the day its a good paycheck.
Safety Supervisor (Current Employee), Pampa txApril 23, 2014
Pros: good benefits, good paycheck
Cons: hard work and its hard to get a raise even if you do the competencys!
A great place to start but you definitely don't want to finish here! Employee retention sucks its like nobody cares because they never do anything about it .The hours you get is why people stay around not because of the hourly rate.

Halliburton Netherlands
field specialist /service supervisor 3 (Current Employee), Ijmuiden / NetherlandsApril 22, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: not being told the plan forward
I took a position in Ijmuiden which i thought was a good move for my career but i am now seeing that in fact i think it was a backward step in my career which i cannot except at this stage of my career .
A typical day is attend the morning meeting to see what jobs are upcoming but no one is told what jobs you are going on so you do not get the equipment – more... ready till last minute till you are on the job .
I have learned in the UK before i came over here but i have not learned anything in the time i have been here . – less
