I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

tere are no best reasons ,this year mgt has decided that the lowest paid people in the company will recieve no bonus ,at baker we have to work 50 to 60 hours a week to make the industry standard

Cons

poor mgt ,the middle mgt at baker is terrible ,the top mgt will each receive millions in bonuses this year ,while the real workers will get nothing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

you have run this company in the ground,do the right thing take responsability and do not accept your bounuses either

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

    Pros

    World Class benefits (as of 2013); one of the very few companies still offering a pension as well as matching 401K.

    Cons

    Too much of a good o' boy culture, middle management still living in the past. Corporately policy talks about diversity but in practice, in its southern shop operations at least, racism is alive and well to the extent that it is even openly discussed by supervisors - disgusting.

    Job training is purely rudimentary just enough to do the job.

    Work-life balance is a joke; 50 hour minimum. Employees must depend on overtime in order to make ends meet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more progressive.
    Provide management training.
    Truly embrace diversity and teach diversity to your managers and supervisors.
    Get rid of the Good o' boy atmosphere. You are missing out on truly good workers that should be promoted instead of the Good o' boy idiots that gets promoted instead.
    Allow vacation balance carry-over; join the 21st Century.
    Boost base pay and improve Work-life Balance.
