People you work with are amazing. However, with the oil and gas fluctuation there is no guaranteed employment unless management "likes or wants" ( very subjective) you to stay. Politics plays a crucial role in your advancement and job security so you would need to understand how to navigate around that else you will be out in due time.

Working with NOV is really very great and you get to meet different nationalities, but there is not much increment in your salary as compared to the market value. Get less opportunity to grow in one department.

NOV provides a good working environment with training and personnel development. It complies to health, safety and environment policy. It has a better benefit for its employees and provide opportunities to work around the globe. Recreational activities in Halliburton is poor and there is no room for table tennis, swimming pool, football field.

There is a poor work-life balance in the office because of the amount of workload. This might be due to poor project management.
No one wants to take responsibility in their work.
