I worked at Baker Hughes full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great benefits. Most people are friendly and fun to work with.

Cons

Baker Hughes used to be a great, employee centered, place to work. It has turned away from that and currently has no loyalty or respect for employees.

The IT department is an absolute disaster. The CIO is clueless and is more concerned with building his resume than with actually providing the business with what they need/want.

IT is in a constant state of reorg and a constant state of workforce reduction. It's over budget and the only way they know how to reduce expense is to lay people off. They have eliminated, or lost, most people who have any knowledge and expect the remaining few to quickly pick up everything. They are outsourcing most new development. After a big push, 3 years ago, to get rid of 'shadow IT' groups within the business, many parts of the business are once again starting to do their own development, because IT will not / cannot give them what they need.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire the CIO. Stop treating employees like a number. Learn the value of retaining knowledgeable employees.

    I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - depend on your supervisor, you could have a nice work/life balance or all way around, luckily my supervisor is a nice one
    - great technology
    - a lot of support to develop through many training

    Cons

    - please take more time to appreciate the employee... good peoples are leaving the company because of lack of reward
    - need a better bussiness strategy and consistency to make it a real "world class service company", especially in Indonesia.
    - too many cut in no of employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Even if you have a cheap contract you should do and support the best for it. Dont sacrifice your front line people (field crew) because the contract is cheap while in the other place peoples are well supported because the contract is better.
    - invest more in people and equipment.
    - Need to kick out some people thats not worth to keep.
