    Former Employee - Field Operator in Clinton, OK
    Former Employee - Field Operator in Clinton, OK

    I worked at Baker Hughes full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits from day one. Company truck was a nice perk.

    Cons

    Guys in the field aren't expected to take days off. Ever.
    Expected to live at the rig and sleep in your truck or on a couch.
    I had zero orientation and barely any training on their processes.
    Little or no communication from field supervisors and I was a new guy!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't really know anything about them since I never met anybody above my field supervisor.

    Current Employee - Field Engineer in Casper, WY

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

    Pros

    Good crews to work with
    Plenty of work
    Decent pay, Benefits are "OK" but not outstanding
    401k match, pension if you stay a long time

    Cons

    Always a hassle to get home for my National Guard duties
    Rarely told where/when I am going more than the day before
    Can never plan things to do with wife and kids
    Lack of schedule makes visitation with children from previous marriage a super huge battle with the ex
    Safety is often given lip service with respect for time to sleep

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More proactive management on scheduling projects, and less fire-fighting the day before it is due to start.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
