    Pros

    Baker Hughes has a highly professional workforce, great training, world class pay and benefits.

    At Baker Hughes, annual bonuses often hinge on completing training and educational goals. The company offers comprehensive training, especially online, but it is up to the individual employee to make sure it gets done before the end of year.

    Baker Hughes management should keep in touch with it's laid off workforce. We love the company and want to return!
