I started at the bottom as an assistant operator and worked my way up to supervisor with many international postings. Good team work and longer term employees are generally of similar mindset due to the nature of the work.

The actual job was okay, but the top heavy, self-serving 'Service Co-coordinators, and supervisor's make the job a nightmare. Management always need reports, safety observations and safety step-backs, so they can meet KPI's. So even were no Safety issue is present, operators are required to submit Observations reports constantly to hit survey numbers, and prior to any meeting, all in attendance must make up a 5x5 step back'' reports. Safety is a joke and antiquated, with "Perfect Days" drummed into every operator, even though, the Safety Officers never leave the office.

The company work by the adage of 'Smoke Screens and Mirrors'. So the working operators are great, but the supervisors and management is a joke. Especially when you try to gain promotion or further training.

I am working for Halliburton for almost 13 years now. Halliburton has been my first and only Oil & Gas Company. The work culture in Halliburton is very healthy with everyone working as team. However, culture may differ a bit slightly with reference to the locations. But overall good. Salaries may not be very healthy as compared to other Oil & Gas companies but I did felt like my job was secured mostly. Even during downturn I was given options to help me keep the job. It wasn't one of the most stable situation in the market anyways.

All in all a very stable job.

A typical day would be to service and maintain equipment or field work of 12/12, I leaned a new computer system, the management were quite and kept away as long as things ran smoothly, the work place culture was typical oil field get the work done but as safe as possible, the hardest part of the job was working in 45DegC, the most enjoyable part was performing the desired job in a timely, safe manner and not forgetting the flight home
Pros
Only a 50 minute flight from home

had the opportunity to learn in a fun environment. got to work with fun engineers, fun bosses, fun colleagues and fun drillers. After about 3 months or 4 went to work on afternoon shift all by myself. took care of all tests, all equipment all data entering and locking up. this was a nice challenge and and probably the hardest part of the job, being the only one there.
Everyone was so nice and accepting and enjoyed working there.
Pros
good people
Cons
too far

Halliburton was a great start to a new career in the energy sector.

A Huge multi-National company with near limitless backing and resources seemed like a grand opportunity, but soon left a sour taste when the brochures stopped portraying the accurate work life of Energy service workers.


Job/Work life balance: Non-existent. Company keeps budget low, so workshop maintenance staff are simply field staff, who have come back or a waiting for a field job. No time off for field workers.


Salary/Benefits: Starting salary isn't improved well over time, low salary and bonuses are hard to swallow when the bonus can be cut, or reduced without warning. Days are paid in 12 hr increments including holidays. Salary numbers are based on working 12 hour days. Employees constantly doing jobs above their paid positions (Operators working at supervisor levels and responsibility, or Supervisors doing Co-coordinators responsibilities)


Job security/Advancement: Market is bad, and management reduce numbers, make job harder and more stressful. Advancement is a myth, and workers can work 4 years without leaving the starting rank and salary. Workers from other countries can be employed, and placed in higher positions becoming management or supervisors to local workers.


Management: "Please meet my unreasonable demands" Managers will keep their bonuses by keeping costs and budgets down. requests for tools are always picked and reduced, leaving workable tooling and spares parts. Promotions are not issued, training is always secondary, leaving training for the enthusiastic field workers who

Pros
Company Expenses are usually refunded, Great friendships can be made, Good training and Courses for skills advancement
Cons
Monthly pay, money can be taken off you, No promotion, No drive to increase local workers to higher positions
