Halliburton could be better
I worked in Lagos Nigeria Halliburton. Halliburton is a good place to work and learn, however, the Human Resource Management needs to improve and have their Staff's interest at heart.

A technology driven and customer focused company
My normal day in halliburton starts by 7:30am, depending on the customers request, I may be preparing open hole tools for open hole logging,loading gun for an upcoming perforation Job, servicing grease injection head as a post job maintenace procedure.

I have learned how to Rig up in offshore and land rigs, run wireline winches safely in open and cased hole . i am also competent in pressure control using dual pack off, wireline valve and grease injection module.

I drive logging trucks safely to locations and perform various logging jobs as customer request.


I have trained new operators on how to work safely, and basics of wireline job such as re heading and preventive maintenance on some logging tools.

The work culture in halliburton and alpha are the same, they are both process driven companies, they are rules and paper work for tiniest of job.


The hardest part of the job is having a miss run after days of logging, and the sleepless nights. Hearing good job guys from the client Rep and pay day are the most enjoyable part of my Job
Pros
meeting people and travelling
Cons
Long hours

A work place where you meet people who are talented
A typical day at work is a day when when you load guns in GLF with all seriousness without any mistake, because there is no second chance in mistake on explosives.
Learning to know the people you work with and how they work.

We work as a team.

The most enjoyable part of the work is when your tools are green tagged and are ready for loadout
Pros
When your manager encourages you and tells you weldone guys
Cons
when there are no tools for the job

Productive and fun place
Work culture is great and the management practice and open door policy. I learned about managing projects, meeting project delivery timelines and balancing work and play. The management is very supportive but there isn't a defined structure in place for technical career path. However it is a great place to work but I am looking at other opportunities within a more challenging environment.

It has been worthwhile working with Halliburton all these years
The thing I do is to go to my 'do list' and check out outstanding items that were not attended to the previous day. New tasks are also included. This is done to put me on track for the day's job.
Thereafter, I reach out to my Boss and colleagues to know if everything is okay and if they got something I need to attend to.


The training here is very useful. Although I still develop myself on the job.


The management has been good, managing the affairs of the company. Listening to the employees' demands is quite tasking but they have lived up to the expectations of most employees.

My relationship with my colleagues is cordial. It is one thing I will forever cherish in the work place. They have helped me to settle down well and always put me through when in difficulty.


The hardest thing on the job is trying to satisfy everyone. As a human resource personnel, employees always come with different requests but not all can be met. A few of them hardly understand that but I have been able to find a way around that, and it is been working.


The most enjoyable part of the job is to relate to employees based on their needs. The more I attend to their problems/challenge, the better I become. Their questions push me to want to learn more about different things, whether on the job or off the job.
Pros
Job security
Cons
Slow salary increment
