No reward or recognition for performance, lousy leadership.

Senior IT Manager (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsRelative 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.

ConsDysfunctional 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 Senior ManagementThere 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at Baker Hughes


    Pros: Legacy of Baker Hughes produced lots of great technologies and most product lines are good places to work for engineers and scientists. However… Cons: Product lines have lost a lot of power in the company. Upper management very distracted and trying to get a grip on what markets… Advice to Senior Management: Need to switch focus from product lines to market segments… More
