Is it really necessary to micromanage so many employees who have been in this company for years and who have always done their job well? It is no longer a matter of ego, but such an approach began to bother me in doing my job. Was the ultimate goal to get rid of the employee? If so, Halliburton succeeded. Well done!

These micro managers are pure and simple control freaks. Don't make it out to be anything more than what it actually is. Most know just enough about your job to create problems and make it more difficult. They haven't spent the years learning the process and gaining knowledge of what actually works to be of any help. They just need to push their beliefs of what's needed onto others without as clue of what will happen. Way too many id--ts in charge at HAL.
They are solely micromanaging costs. Employees are the biggest expense so hours and penalties for job failures are to be at a minimum.
Be thankful for still being an “earner” and don’t forget who feeds you.
Stems from Mark Richard. Terrible micro manager that pushes the mentality all the way down the line. He's the death knell for the company.
Yes, if you are required to be micro managed, leadership will recognize that and do accordingly. The objective is to make you a top performer so that you don’t end up in the chopping block. Rather than being upset you should be thankful for your manager taking the extra effort to micro manage.
Everybody pays a price for their mistakes. Even the managers will. No matter how far, how fast they fly. Reality will bite and it will hurt really bad. That’s the nature of the beast.

Of course it is, how else can these "micro-managers" show their own "micro-managers" that they are "doing their job"?
It's one big circle, where the ;p-e-ons are considered incapable of doing ANYTHING, without "hands-on" leadership, leadership that may well have NO experience in the PSL that they are assigned to, but who were put on the fast track, because of "diversity/political correctness", or because of who they know.
How far has Halliburton fallen? All one needs to do, is look at management.
