    Pros

    Pros at Baker Hughes include freedom, flexibility and compensation. However, I'd say working with so many people from diverse backgrounds and learning from them was the ultimate pro.

    Cons

    Hard to make necessary changes in processes

    Advice to Management

    Have a vision for your team that is different than the corporate vision but still in line with their core values
