Suggested Profiles - Any takers? [#permalink] New post 23 Mar 2007, 16:43
I've got a few companies I am very interested in and would love to get a thread running on at least one of these if anyone can contribute.

Although I don't think these are very popular landing spots for most MBAs, I hope at least a couple more of you have some curiosity about these companies, so that the thread will be of interest to others aside from me :)

- Halliburton (either the Oil/Gas component or the heavy construction component, KBR)
- Bechtel
- Exxon

What exactly do you want to know? Company culture, performance management systems, business, which area are making money, earning projection? By the way, the stuff I'll tell you stuff you won't find on websites or market ratings.

This is something that would really appeal to me as well. Just some first hand accounts of culture, work/life balance, etc would be great.

Thanks!
