    I worked at Baker Hughes as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Most of them are very nice. There are a few backstabbers just like anywhere else.

    Cons

    No management direction at all. They never make any kind of decisions. The inmates run the ship. They are too worried about everyone being happy as opposed to making the hard choices to make the company money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to lead!!

    I worked at Baker Hughes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay if you wish to trade your personal life for a dollar.

    Cons

    Management does not plan work load well. Way to much work and work load placed upon individuals. Having been in the welding department, their where many 24-30 hour days. I know now why when I went to work there my friends said my wife would be a "Baker widow" ! I quit after 3 years, just could not take the stress from management changes, work load and tool hands changing plans mid-job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan your jobs better and make the ops coordinators accountable for getting information to the welders in a timely manor. You can't just spit a 5 7/8 shoe with a 4 3/4 i.d. on a moments notice !! Jobs take planning and time. The N.L.R.B. has guide lines for a reason !!!
