    Pros

    No different than SLB and HAL. Big companies ruining our industry and driving wages down.

    UNION IS NEEDED

    Cons

    No values, no work life balance and the pay sucks. Company forces employees to sign non-disclosure agreement which allows baker Hughes to fire employees without notice and for any reason deemed. The pay does not match the cost of living most companies pay 3x more than there.

    Advice to Management

    You have become a company with out integrity who's focus is only on the companies profit. Baker Hughes does not deserve to be in Canada. I will go out of my way to turn people away from your company. Pay fare wages or suffer having a Union.

    Pros

    They paid very well.

    Cons

    They didn't have any signs up saying things were hot. I got burned because of it.

    Advice to Management

    They need to pay attention to what is going on in the department. Cause there were people leaving to take breaks when it wasn't break time.

    Pros

    Global organisation with potential to be offer interesting roles

    Cons

    Organisation appeared to care very little about associate wellbeing. Claims of bullying were handled very poorly. Employees based in the Houston head office were allowed to unfairly tarnish the reputation of those in other geographies.

    Pros

    Good separation of teams, cutting edge LCMS technology (Xyleme) and some friendly faces if you are lucky.

    Cons

    Where do I start? Bullying, retaliation and a complete nightmare once you start to show some initiative that disagrees with the "leadership" that sadly is stuck in the 50's of pedagogy. Too many leaders and exec's that have bought into a culture of fear and managers that are essentially unemployable.

    A great system held back by rigid templates, over the shoulder working practices and frankly, the kind of behavior that will give you a nervous breakdown.

    Advice to Management

    If you are the CEO - clear it out. Seriously, from you down to the managers, and start again. If you don't, good luck holding onto anyone that is any good in learning and development.

    Pros

    average pay, relaxed working environment, work is not stressful if you are an employee.

    Cons

    Managers have really heavy workloads since the company has cut off many team leads positions; some manager manages 30 to 80 people, so prepare to work at nights and weekends. Constant politic change and structure change.

  9. Uninspired organization with no value on corporate culture or employees.

    Experience in Oil & Gas

    Cons

    Leadership can not get out of immediate reaction mode and organization lacks inspiration. No work-life balance as there is little regard for employees.
