I worked at Baker Hughes full-time for less than a year

Pros

The people I worked with were great. The salary was acceptable. The benefits were average, nothing special. The location was central and easily accessible by public transit.

Cons

Houston head office did not understand the working culture of Calgary especially around Stampede time. Forced to use very inefficient software that made simple tasks impossible to accomplish. Not provided training for said software despite asking numerous times. Working here would only be useful to keep you employed while you look elsewhere. HR is completely inefficient and unresponsive, and also based in Houston. I would NOT recommend this place to friends.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please place some value on your lower level employees, sometimes they can see the bigger picture and can see simple solutions to problems. Stop ignoring lower level employees when they make a complaint. Continually replacing your lower level staff is a very inefficient way to conduct business.

    I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Competitive salary and good health care benefits.

    Cons

    Favoritism among employees. Supervisor being less respectable as they always take advantage from you for the good of their favorite employee even though he knows it was unfair and outrageous (Not applicable for all Product Line). And as a result, Demoralize and dissatisfaction grows among employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What you heard doesn't mean always right, what you see is something really to think for.
