    I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Great group of colleagues to work with in the field!
    - Good benefits (i.e.: health insurance, stock purchase plan)
    - Not a clear salary schedule

    Cons

    - HR Extremely slow with everything
    - Managers have no clue what we are doing in the field
    - Short sighted managing, more firefighting than managing operations
    - Promises not kept by HR or managment (i.e. : promise that it is easy to transfer between locations or productline.)
    - A lot of financial 'deals' are made which gives unbalance in salaries even if you have the same title and do the same job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a proper HR who knows what the oil business is about, and what we are doing.
    Same for managers.
    Get a long term vision

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

    Pros

    Maintains a very manageable workforce, not too much so that the company does not need to reduce manpower at trouble times. Work place generally has a small group which works more like a family. Have strong ethical business principles and completely complaint.

    Cons

    Local management is not strong in many cases. Weak personnel team. Career guidelines not very well defined for all roles in local offices. Management most of the times focuses only on operations not on the data evaluation and interpretation market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to hire proper personnel (HR) managers, with proper knowledge of Oil and Gas business. Management should define and respect the career guidelines of all technical personnels.
