    Coporate Bureaucratic. If you fit the mold then you will succeed otherwise you will be cut.

    I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    One of the few companies left that has a pension. In addition with a 401K.
    Promotions and to climb the corporate ladder is purely by your performance.

    Cons

    The company I used to work for was bought out by them. If this happens to your company then you WILL be let go eventually.
    If you can't perform at their pace you will not succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to really take more care of your employees. After all who do you think makes the real company?

    I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Baker Hughes has been a great place to build my career. I have worked on many projects with employees from all levels of the organization. I have taken advantage of great opportunities to diversify my experience and have felt for the most part that management was available to help me succeed.

    Cons

    The company politics can be discouraging with a lot of promotions that seem biased or undeserving. Some jobs seem to be posted with the person taking the position already in mind giving others little opportunity. Depending on executive management direction of the company can be unclear at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A better understanding of the direction of the company to be passed down through management is essential for everyone to feel they are contributing to the success of the company. Better communication with employees to understand and improve the morale of the company would be beneficial. I have already seen improvement in these areas with some recent changes in the company.
