    I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Relaxed work environment
    - Great benefits
    - Fun coworkers

    Cons

    - Management is more concerned with their own technical work rather than the concerns of employees
    - Management almost irrationally shuts down design ideas from engineers
    - Engineering career progression is on a set path with pre-determined salary raises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Quit putting engineers in management positions. Managers need to be in management positions. Opinionated engineers in management positions hinders design innovation and project progression.
    - Pay attention to the needs of your young engineers. Keeping them happy is the key to the success of your company. Failure to do so will result in collapse.
