    I have been working at Baker Hughes Inteq full-time

    Pros

    BHI offers a great compensation and benefits package. The resources and opportunities to grow within the company are tremendous and they are willing to send you to several schools to better yourself.

    Cons

    Field workers are compensated very well, but often times over worked. Working 250+ days a year away from home can be very stressful on a family. I work in the Alaska Inteq division where there isn't one manager who has spent time in the field doing the work that they are responsible for. Most of the managers in Alaska are hired as part of their progression for transitioning to Houston at some point and have never set foot in Alaska prior to hiring on. They will promise you a "Rotational" schedule but often times be nowhere to be found when you have been at the job for 4+ weeks and looking for relief.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good job overall, but think about work-life balance for your employees before taking on new work.

    Pros

    money and benifits if you dont get hazed to quit

    Cons

    I was afraid to go to work everyday. My car and toolbox was messed with everyday and the supervisors look the other way

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was let go because I complained about the lights being out in the parking lot. and not reporting a minor thing within 10:00 minutes. after 5 years perfect attendance. This company has to many bosses that goes to there head. This is suppose to be a professionaly work place. Lost my job 6 months ago and they said I'am not good for rehire, what a piece of company. I was up for a supervisor job they brought someone in off the street instead....

    Current Employee - MWD/LWD Field Engineer in Mount Pleasant M, PA

    I have been working at Baker Hughes Inteq full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Baker has allowed me progress through the company by working overseas and insisting that I learn new tools each year. I have been encouraged to expand my knowledge to other parts of the company and keep my options open. I have a good relationship with my coworkers and bosses. I feel that everyone is approachable and open minded to new ideas and suggestions on improvement. Mostly I enjoy the opportunities that are available to branch outside of my role as a field engineer in the future into many different divisions of the company.

    Cons

    Depending on where you are located there might be very limited time at home or the opposite of very little time at work. The inconsistency in a work schedule are a typical characteristic of an MWD position but they can become tiresome after a few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some locations could invest more into training their field specialist and understanding that a well trained and well treated field hand will cost less in the long run and stay in the field longer.

    Pros

    Baker Hughes has a great bunch of people. The tools and technology you have to work with are decent. The company is always forward thinking in terms of technology and research.

    Cons

    You have limited career paths as you become more senior and may be difficult for you to move into other roles within of the company if you do not want to start from near the bottom. Limited overseas assignments to nice places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage employees more and you will get the best from them

    Pros

    Anyone with no experience or intelligence can make good money here..aka Mouth.

    Cons

    Underpaid-Unappreciated-Overworked-Micromanaged-Buddy System-Bribes-Corruption..20 words isn't enough to explain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house on management at Sooner Road....just look at the turnover rate, moral. Before the downturn this was a very good company to work for now Canadian management MB has put all his robots in line to be the eyes and ears of the company. Just look around and ask anyone who has been there longer than 1 year what they really think....preferably over drinks; that's when you can get some real good feedback.

    Pros

    Great Benfits as of 2013 but rumor has it that they are planning reducing Health Benefits.

    Cons

    Too many Oklahoma Baker-Hughes employees are knuckle-dragging racist to include middle management as they treat Baker-Hughes Anti-harrassment seminars with open contempt.
    Big-time Good-o-boy network and too many unqualified people promoted into positions that they are unqualified for and over-looking well qualified people in favor of the good-o-boy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you do not believe this try checking it out for yourself by employing an "Undercover Boss" method you will be shocked at the openly racist attitudes that are even promoted by your middle-managers - discussingly unprofessional. Beware of your good-o-boy culture it is killing your bottom-line. Goodluck you'll need it. I have not, and will not, buy stock in your company.
