    The training that new field engineers is amazing. Everyone person I worked with, including my managers, were all fantastic, incredibly supportive people that were sincerely interested in helping me succeed. The money isn't bad either

    Cons

    The offshore work can be taxing, but that's the life of a field engineer

    I worked at Baker Hughes full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pros- yep there lots of bias and discrimination throughout Baker Inteq and BOT in Broussard. been like that for years. No one says anything because of the cliques. If you're lucky to befriended as part of the group you don't have to look over your back. If you cant be part you're looked down upon... It's been seen from the ground all the way up to inteqs VP level.

    Cons

    One day someone is going to nail someone good with a discrimination charge Clorox won't take off. And it doesn't matter who you talk to about it, no one does anything about anything cause they're afraid of losing their sacred position, so they'll put you off and evade you. Well what happens when you can't fire someone cause there's nothing to fire them over, when lay offs come to lay them off so now the problem isn't fixed, it's covered up and business as usual.

    Advice to Management

    Advice? why, you can present things till you're blue in the face with evidence and no one does anything.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits pay was ok ppl in the warehouse are usually good down to earth

    Cons

    Tons and tons of false promises, if it's not in writing don't believe it. Upper management can care less about your opinion, or if they do like it, they wait for months then say it is their idea

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice I can give them. THEY WOULDN'T TAKE IT EVEN IF I DID!!!

    Pros

    decent pay. good health benefits for current employees. other benefits such as vacation time are good, up to 5 weeks.

    Cons

    recently sold out to Halliburton. Unsure future with pending merger. job demands 24 hour/ 7 day a week attention.

    Advice to Management

    take note from Companies that value healthy life balance and a culture of alternatives, such as encouraging riding a bike or walking to work and implementing facilities to promote that.

    I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A corporation being a self serving entity will generally guarantee stockholders a fairly decent profit as long as they realize this type of management will be fairly short lived.

    Cons

    This type of management is generally accomplished by monopolizing on the work done by the non-management employees. The employees who generate the income will suffer from the excesses of the upper level management - who generally do not generate any capital for the company. This will last only as long as it takes for the better and more seasoned employees to find another job. By doing this it will strip the corporation of their experienced employees and generally leave them short of people to do the work. This will cause them to start losing market share which in turn will cause them to start losing revenue and the value of the stock will drop.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your field employees with the respect they deserve. Be honest with your employees. You push ethics but then you do not practice them when it comes to dealing with your own employees. You maintain upper level management salaries while cutting the salaries of the people who actually earn the revenue. While the employees you are mistreating may not have an "earth science" degree, they aren't stupid. There are many reasons they didn't get their degrees. But they are still highly trained and qualified and many will be leaving the company as soon as they find another job.
