Administrator in United Kingdom
Fast paced and can be stressful when short deadlines are given, but very satisfying. Good development opportunities available. A good company to work for, with decent salary and good development opportunities.As experienced in other O&G companies I have worked for, there is a failing in the work/life balance which is perpetuated by management at various levels, whilst lip service is paid to the mental wellbeing of employees. Setting a precedence with your managers and peers on your own expectations (rather than following the habits of some of the long service employees, who maybe felt forced in to that way of working over the years) does help the situation. Changes in culture are evident, but it depends if you have a supportive manager or not.

Toxic workplaceManagement are not interested in doing best for the company as a whole, only self serving for advancement. Zero communication, huge amounts of favouritisim/nepotism, could go on forever....

Bad pay and little time off but good guys in your team.Pay is low compared to other service companies. Little time off and when you are off you are often expected to come into the yard. The team are good guys though.

Not a good company to work forAll is bad. They don't really care about employees. It's all abut just make more profit. The work is underpaid and they cut the salary (in 2021) instead of increasing it.
Logging Geologist/Field Engineer in Aberdeen
Lack of caring for staff and lack of job progression salary structure I was really proud when I started at Halliburton, I thought it could be the start of a life long career with the company. I went above and beyond the role and expectations - going on to do cross training out-with my role and learning everyday on the job across disciplines. However, after years of hard work at the company I am left worse off than when I started. My reward for working here was having my day-rate cut 20%, my potential for promotion removed (removing the senior role of my position from their structure), being given less time at home, having holiday requests blatantly ignored by managers, having my achievements/good comments from clients twisted by upper management so I got no distinct recognition/ so that recognition was diverted to my mangers who had no play in the fact. It is a toxic and horrible culture created by their management so it benefits them but disciplines field personnel. It is completely unsustainable to work there. If you are a new graduate looking to start a new career, do not even look at this company. It will disappoint and treat you badly.
