    Great people. Beware of the sometimes very political environment.

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

    Pros

    Freedom to make decisions and to operate independently. Large company, relatively stable pay and benefits. Quite a few managers and leaders are very motivated. A strong emphasis on new, cutting-edge products and services provides for an environment that values innovation. There seems to be considerable job growth opportunity in many divisions of the company.

    Cons

    Processes had a stranglehold on and were slowing down new product development, although recently this has been changing. Pay is average. Upper management seems to be focused too much on shareholder return and not enough on the long-term vision for the company. HR is pushing an overly PC environment, limiting freedom of normal speech and communication. Sometimes management appoints team leads who aren't qualified to lead their teams and who cause teams to effectively rupture, pushing team members to look for new jobs. I witnessed this as a 3rd party, and the situation was depressing and hit morale hard, especially since management refused to change the situation. However, this was a relatively isolated incident in my experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To some: keep up the great work. To others: please be more motivational and give your reports more freedom. Also, please insure to always appoint leaders who at least garner some respect from their subordinates, and who are knowledgeable in the matter they are leading.
