The benefits that are offered are very good especially when someone who knows nothing of these type of benefits due to military service starts employment with them, things are explained well and are among the best of other companies out there.
Biggest issue is keeping the workers in the dark on current issues with the slow down and the acquisition process by halliburton
Advice to Management
Allow individuals who might have more to offer the company move up quicker within the company than having to wait 2yrs to move up. Individuals with military experience have more to offer than just being a shop hand... Speaking from personal thoughts, coming from the military and being a supervisor for years to being unable to move up sooner than later is rather discouraging and may cause for seeking employment elsewhere that the opportunity to move up quicker is offered.

Was initially rejected by Baker Hughes through computer screening process, was hired in an interview with BJ Services, a simple 20 minute interview and was offered the job on the spot. Baker had acquired BJ Services. BJ services understood what it took to make it as a field engineer and hired based on character and motivation, Baker was more focused on computer algorithms for candidate selection.
