    I have been working at Baker Hughes

    Pros

    Relative freedom to define job and responsibilities, some interesting technical challenges. Good pension plan, ok medical and dental benefits. One of the big three oilfield service companies, so mobility and career possibilities are not bad.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional organization structure within the IT organization makes it very difficult to get anything done, and it requires a very large effort to get things moving. IT management's leadership style is autocratic. Some of the processes are archaic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a plethora of tools, but little in the way of knowledge or training for using them properly. Reduce the number of tools, and get the best ones implemented properly. The HR tools for appraisals and job requisitions are the worst I have seen. The 3 IT groups involved in every project step on each other's toes, and hinder rather than help.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
  2. Below avg due to the power play and politics game within the organization, Mgmt don't away follow company rules/policy

    Pros

    Benefits/salary and company "well known" name

    Cons

    Not everyone is treated fairly due to politics, needs to have a hard nose coming in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee quarterly review and the 2010 Employee/upper management open hierarchy communication needs to be look upon again
