Current Employee - IT Project Manager in Houston, TX
Current Employee - IT Project Manager in Houston, TX

I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Having a job in a bad economy. Outside of that, There are no good reasons to work in Baker Hughes IT right now.

Cons

IT Management from lower line managers to Directors are only interested in looking good to Vice Presidents and the next layer of the organizational structure so they can advance their careers. Upper Management is being told what sounds good not what is really going on. There are so many problems from full time employees being over worked to products being deployed with many issues just so a project deadline is met and someone can reap the "reward" of project completion. Managers are allowing flawed product deployment. They are turning their head and saying "I don't know" so there is no ownership of the problem.

Unrealistic guidelines
Unrealistic project deadlines
Layoffs
Hiring cheap labor in Kuala Lumpur
Outsourcing jobs to India
Poor IT Support
No longer a good organization to work for!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to employee surveys! You will more than likely find out what is going on in your IT organization.
