    Good, but could be so much better with a more refined vision from senior management

    Current Employee - Financial Analyst II in Oklahoma City, OK

    I have been working at Baker Hughes

    Pros

    People are genuinely friendly
    Benefits aren't too bad
    The "political" game isn't as strong as at other companies
    Quality products/services
    Future performance of company should be good

    Cons

    Lack of vision by senior management for support functions
    Many necessary support functions are contracted out (and poorly at that)
    Lack of established processes
    Information sharing is poor
    Systems streamlining is poor (for example each product line developed their own SAP reports instead of standard reports serving all product lines)
    Waiting 5 years between each bump up in vacation time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While the Baker One reorganization was a good idea, the execution has been severely lacking in everything but the sales/operations force. Someone with enough authority and budget needs to champion an efficiency initiative to streamline the support functions and establish best practices across all product lines.

    Current Employee - Applications Engineer I in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -income potential can be high
    -networking opportunities

    Cons

    -job security can feel less than stable at times, mostly a product of the petroleum industry in general
    -management claims to foster an attitude of talent management and career growth, but most of the time these policies go unsubstantiated.
    -lack of specific training for most areas.
    -mid management has a tendency to block internal opportunities across product lines.
