I would love for it to stay like this for a long time, because I feel like a new man since I work from home. WFH saves me a lot of time wasted on transportation, I’m more productive, and it would be sad to go back to the office and see that there aren’t many great people who used to spread good vibes but were laid off in meantime. For some of them I know they have found great new jobs, and for some I have no information.

Used the excess of Halliburton and invested in copper. The hoard of sugar was the game changer.
I was with Hal for only one year when I get laid off in May 2020. Found a job 6 months later with 55K pay cut. I have a fond memory of Hal for giving me the highest salary of my life. I recently got a hold of lump sum retirement money from another company I worked for. I bought Hal stocks with some of that money. I'm looking forward for the company to recover as fracking will come back, imo.
Making more money and way better work–life balance. It's very refreshing. I really liked Halliburton when I started in the early 2000's, but it completely went to sh–t and glad to be somewhere else.
Got laid off in May 2020.
Took full advantage of the resume service Hal paid for and got a new job in the chemicals industry in August. Making 10k less than Hal but work life balance is good and management at this company is competent (has to be since it’s a smaller company). Lots of room for growth and promotion and much more stable than oil and gas.
Left Hal and started my own company. Learn as much as you can while you are there.
Got laid off in January of 2015. Was going to retire at the end of the year anyway. Since I worked in the labs, I would not have been able to work from home. No way they would let me set up a lab at home although that would have been cool! 43 years was enough for me. Glad it all worked out the way it did.
