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

I worked at Baker Hughes full-time (less than a 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.

    I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time (more than a 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.

    I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are decent. Some good job opportunities. Enjoyable and talented coworkers for the most part.

    Cons

    Highly political and beaurocratic environment. Many employees work long hours and/or are expected to handle email and take phone calls while on vacation. Too many competing initiatives, so most are reduced to box-checking missions. Many difficult and complex processes and systems. Rush to begin work on projects while planning still in progress results in wasted work, rework and confused outcomes.
