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

    Pros

    International company, diversity, leading edge technology, nice facility in Dubai HQ, cafeteria on sight, prayer rooms, nursing room for mothers, state of art training center, multicultural environment

    Cons

    Leadership changes its mind every couple of years and they restructure the entire organization. There is no 'change management' per se. They move the chips and let them land however they land. No consideration for impact on employees lives. The HR organization is extremely bloated with HR 'divas' earning way more than their Operations and Field counterparts yet they are a heavy cost and not revenue generating. Career advancement is based on who you know and the old boys club as opposed to real transparent competency based development on your own merit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shed the fat in the middle, talk to your people, listen to the people on the ground.
