Halliburton

Halliburton doesn’t make the news much anymore. Remember all the complaints that they received no-bid contracts during the Bush years? What they didn’t tell you was that Halliburton also received no-bid contracts during the Clinton years. And that they are receiving no-bid contracts today under Obama.

I once worked for Halliburton for about a year. Their management was terrible. I’ve often wondered how they even make any money at all. They are captives of the quarterly reports. Everything was geared to quarterly reports. As each quarter neared its end monsters began rearing their heads looking at everyone with a cold eye. Think of PMS on an epic scale.

I moved on to a company whose outlook was more in the future. It was a world of difference and I found a home. It was nice to actually enjoy a job again and I stuck around for a long time.
