    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Halliburton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's nothing positive to say about the job.

    Cons

    - terrible pay
    - rampant nepotism
    - no career path
    - 10%+ paycut 4 years ago
    - no promotions
    - no payrises
    - forced to take holidays in your time off (minimum 5 days at a time)
    - your holidays area stolen if you do not use them - company will not pay you for them but can block you taking holidays at will!
    - expected to work dangerously: 12, 24, 36, 48+ hour shifts not uncommon for Cementers as inadequate cover provided to cover 24hr operations
    - when the above is raised with management, you are told to "manage your hours better"

    Advice to Management

    Start looking after your workers who are out breaking their backs offshore for you. Your attitude towards them is utterly disgraceful.

    Relaxed but professional working atmosphere where you are made to feel welcomed. Work colleagues are generally helpful and give good sound advice.

    If you employ someone to do a job, let them get on and do it.
