I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time

Pros

There are many areas you can move into. The jobs pay great and you may not need a degree for some fields.

Cons

It takes time to transfer and move up. You have to be at your position for 2 years before you can move.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the time before transferring one year as it was. If employees move, it's only to where Baker Hughes could better use someone and have someone be where they want. Quite an obvious use of efficiency and allocation of resources. Consider your stockholders, you have an obligation to maximize dividends. If you are not allocating resources in a more efficient way that also retains employees, are you being ethical?

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

    Pros

    I have had experience with BH for over 8 years. Good healthcare, large company chance to move around if you are 'chosen'

    Cons

    In a bouyant market BH still seem unable to translate success into profit and are continually reorganising to cut costs and resources, leaving a very unsettled workforce. Experience is not rewarded, highfliers are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Admit strategy failings, get back to core business

    I worked at Baker Hughes full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    pay is great 401k medical is ok

    Cons

    they do not care if you do your job better than anyone else even if you save them millions of dollars they do not recognize the person doing the job. they only notice if you make a mistake . then they fire you. after they realize the mistake that was made was them and not the ex-employee they cover up the mistake that cost the ex-employee so much more than a job! They have meetings for meetings and micro manage so they stress the employee to the limit while covering their own butts in the fine print! they expect loyalty but they have none to the employee or the ######.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop diversification hire on merit not race. repeated anonymous complaints should be investigated to find the anonymous employee who is causing stress to the employees that work at work instead of watch everyone so they can tattle tail and cry baby. they do it because the working man is going to make more money the the watching man be productive and constructive not petty and destructive! stand up for your hard working employees and let the lazy watchers walk. it doesn't really matter since my husband is Halliburton now your loss BHI " Wife ex-employee" GO BIG RED!!!!
