    Former Employee - Human Resources in Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)

    I worked at Baker Hughes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    In all fairness, normally pay is high and compensates demand and complexity of the organisation. Good career opportunities (especially abroad and/or Field). Clear policies. Very good internal systems and IT applications. Very global and multicultural.

    Cons

    Complex organisation. Impersonal. Appalling decision making (process takes so long the decision becomes obsolete and you have to start all over again, which is so frustrating). No recognition - it is not only about pay (which is okay but it is not always the case). Getting 0 merit increases globally has happened. Many employees are required to travel and that could harm their personal life - management do not care. Being in a very global and multicultural organisation also means you get phone calls during your weekends from Arabic countries or have to resolve issues urgently, or have conference calls late in the evening (depending on the time zones). So, in a nutshell, some (or maybe... many) positions do not have your classic 9 to 5 schedule, but that is not even deemed important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some decisions must be made quickly. Recognise the involvement and dedication.
