    Former Employee - RDD Engineer V - Mechanical Engineer in The Woodlands, TX

    I worked at Baker Hughes as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Although it's a large company, I felt comfortable reaching out to others for help and insight. I knew nothing about the oil industry before my internship and came out after 3 months with a wealth of knowledge not only about the area I was working with, but the industry as a whole.

    Cons

    The only con was that it took over 5 months to get back to me after my interview that I had received a job offer.

    I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Been a very good work experience, chances for mobility and good management. Better atmosphere than most competitors. Ive moved around in different business units and geomarkets, so I would say there are definitely chances to do different things in your career, which I view as a big positive.

    Cons

    Compensation can be less than other oilfield service companies, but honestly thats all I could say as a negative, if you're happy with the pay, you'll be happy working at BHI.

    Pros

    Baker Hughes is strong financially and they have great benefits such as 50% match up to 6% of salary in their 401K. Onsite cafeterias with Starbucks at major locations. Liberal holiday, vacation and health benefits.

    Cons

    Large company...sometimes difficult to determine to whom we should turn for answers to questions or issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reverse employee reviews would be helpful. More activities to meet the other emplooyees would increase inter-connectivity and communications.
