    I worked at Baker Hughes

    Pros

    Baker Hughes does many things well in my opinion: onboarding, training, safety, benefits, management, innovation, customer service, career advancement.

    Cons

    Long hours are required and for the most part are similar to other companies operating in the same product lines or services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continually seek ways to improve working conditions that allow field personnel "real" days off where they can have 3 or 4 days in order to travel or make solid plans with family.
