    Pros

    Lots of training for new employees with the focus on technology and the company puts its effort into its people

    Cons

    This company is not going to exist in the next three months so it does not matter what the cons are. As an engineer, I was thankful for the training

    Advice to Management

    Management could not have known what was to come

    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

    Pros

    Baker Hughes does many things well in my opinion: onboarding, training, safety, benefits, management, innovation, customer service, career advancement.

    Cons

    Long hours are required and for the most part are similar to other companies operating in the same product lines or services.

    Advice to Management

    Continually seek ways to improve working conditions that allow field personnel "real" days off where they can have 3 or 4 days in order to travel or make solid plans with family.

  10. Reasonable company, but there are some serious cons.

    Pros

    Great pay, reasonable benefits. Great co-workers ready to provide support to new employees.

    Cons

    Too long to commute. Not too much attention paid to you as an employee. A lot of layoffs due to different circumstances. Very little development potential. Few opportunities for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Be more attentive to your employees. We are all people and we are ready to work for the company's benefit. Pay more attention and provide more opportunities for advancement.

    Pros

    The "Company" is great. The benefits are awesome. The salaries are terrific.

    Cons

    To many cliques. To much incompetency across the board in Lafayette area. To many in the same management position to long that has no understanding what the difference is between manager and leader.

    Advice to Management

    Try getting rid of the Peter Principal and demand more competency instead of keep hiring incompetence to cover up incompetence.
