    Great co-workers and training is very good. People are willing to teach you the correct way to do something.

    Balancing work and family is tough. Can never count on anything to be set in stone. Sometimes you feel like you are just a number.

    Pros

    Nice amenities on campus. Good training opportunities.

    Cons

    Way too much politics at play.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the SCMP program. Most of the people out of the program who were put in supervision positions did not deserve the position.

    Pros

    Company communicates the company direction well to most employees. Great mobility if you want to see the world. Most positions have global processes in place that make the jobs well defined. Always innovating in some of the most sophisticated energy technology categories. Big ideas can get funded and launched.

    Cons

    Typical big company in some regards - nothing happens too quickly. Attempts to standardize business processes and support software systems are extremely difficult due to the diverse nature of the different business units and have led to burdensome challenges for end users.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating annual themes, keep reshaping the company, don't stand still.

    Pros

    Great staff to work with. They are very knowledgeable and easy to work with. Great salary, stock options, and benefits. Latest techlogical tools, including Solidworks, ANSYS, AutoCAD, Mathcad, etc.

    Cons

    Stupid management; allow themselves to listen to people who think they know what the company needs when they are only pushing their own agenda (Climb the ladder plus $$$).
    Presently moving away from individual offices towards cubicle farms. Merger with Baker-Hughes only makes things even worse...

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiring outsiders who don't know anything about Service Equipment and only run the groups for show.
