Pros

leading technology, many experts in their field, well structured career path, commitment to training and development, travelling benefits

Cons

Lack of leadership at middle management level, poorly organized/synergied across the company since it was combined with so many smaller companies, let the support function play a role over the operation. especially HR, the biggest problem of the organization

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Run business on people not on the fansy system

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

    Pros

    It used to be a great company to work at, very good environment, great people, training, meeting different cultures, good management.

    Cons

    Last for years the company has lost decency, honesty, respect for the employees, too many layoffs very badly managed by HR and Legal managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to visit the geomarkets and interview the employees but not the managers, they are questionable in many places, you'll be surprised of what a terrible company BHI has turn into.

    Bad management and unhelpful HR division

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at your managers, they do not fullfill the requiered leadership role, there's an essential comunication issue within this company. It's not enough knowing where to go, you need to know How to do it!
