Pros

Tremendous benefits and earning potential. You'll get out of Baker what you put in. Work, learn, exceed expectations and the personal and professional benefits will be there.

Cons

Long, stressful hours in all weathers.
Work/home balance is very difficult to manage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clarify the path to advancement. Reward hard work and learning with an appropriate raise in grade and rate.

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

    Pros

    New technology is evaluated and implemented when fit to put in the environment. Great mentors within the IT Organization along with the majority of having great attitudes. Team oriented and goal driven (yearly).

    Cons

    As of late the IT organization seems to have to much on their plate with yearly goals, breakthrough goals and just day to day activity. Leadership is shoving to much down it's employees throats and we can't breath. Outsourcing IT jobs without proper hand off as well as no thought of how the company will react. Doesn't seem to do exit interviews when an employee leaves the company on his or her terms. Leadership makes decisions without consulting team members that have been working at the company several years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to what was working and reconsider if outsourcing jobs was a great investment. You're losing great people and talent due to poor leadership at the highest level. Change the culture back to when it was an inviting atmosphere and fun to work for BHI.

    Pros

    The pay is awesome, and crazy High. Has a pension and a 401K

    Cons

    You are just a tool to them, they work you everyday 12hours a day 365 a year, don't expect any time off. You will not see your family for christmas. HR makes your life hell every chance they can. The pension is not defined benefits and just another 401K that they requires 3 years of employment to receive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    FIRE HR, they suck and make our lives hell. The engineering program is also a joke
