It's a joke how little senior management pays attention to the rapidly growing turnover and all the experience and institutional knowledge we're losing through it. That's something that can't be replaced by just adding another warm body into the mix. There are so many reasons why people are leaving that could be rectified but nobody seems to care.

Undoubtedly, posted by a holier than thou POS, who NEVER worked in the field (where the money to keep his arrogant azz employed is made)
Why should they "care"?
If you don't like it, they WILL tell you to your face, that they will go down to the same park bench, or bar where they found you, and get your replacement.
Such is Halliburton's attitude towards those that work in the field.
Even if you go to a new employer, you will be valued with the same numbers.
You may personally think you are more valued in the new company, but that is totally your thinking or the corporate kool-aid working.
That attitude is why you end up with a billion dollar disaster like iCruise and have no one around who can fix it. They all quit to go to an employer that valued them.
If you are in a team of 10 people.
Your worth to your lead is 10% or even less unless you have shown potential or possess an extraordinary skill set.
For the manager your worth is 1% or less as 10 leads or more report to him.
For the country head your worth is even less.
So compare your pay to the business value that country heads are managing, you can reach a conclusion how much attention you deserve.
Agree with the comment about Mark Richard. I worked directly for a manager that reported to him and he spent at least an hour every day kissing his ar-e. I was also told never to question him or other leaders in meetings in front of others. I have never seen such a inbred management in my entire life. Sad thing is, it's like the blind leading the blind. That type of leadership is only driven from the top down.
Halliburton is an anomaly that defies physics. It is somehow the only mass that is dangerously top heavy and doesn’t fall over and sink. Thank the lord for puppet accountants.
You can thank Mark Richard for this. Ever since he took over, Halliburton has gone down hill. He is a micro manager that only cares about money. He pushes this mentality on down the line of command. Halliburton doesn't give two sh--s about their employees.
Tools built in Singapore, soon to be designed in Singapore. Good luck Houston.
The writing is on the wall in the US. They will close North Belt and offshore everything else except leave some logistics and accounting in North America.
If you're talking about the US workforce it's because it really doesn't matter. The field is dead, the real work is happening in international and if you haven't noticed or don't know all supply chain operations are being offshored as fast as possible. Halliburton as wee know it won't exist in the US in 10 years. Maybe not even 5.
Sperry technology is fu----g lousy.
