    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.

    Pros

    Very good benefits. Company truck,gas.medical dental,vision, paid for food, housing. paid vac. sick days , uniforms and boots.

    Cons

    Sometimes to many hours. No real schedual. Go when they want you to. Not home much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to get way more involved with lower management, coordinators and supervisors. And watch them on a higher scale. Go and talk to field employees on a one on one meeting to find out if anything is going on that needs to be investigated. Things get to their head to make them believe they are next to GOD.
