    Pros

    Hard work, long hours and a good attitude will get you far.

    Long hours, staff is way too lean. Doing the job of 4 people combined into one.

    I worked at Baker Hughes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good, and severance packages are generous. There are some good people, but not in supervisor roles.

    Cons

    Management and supervisors are stuck in their old ways, and flexibility is discouraged. They talk about growth opportunities, but unless you are an engineer or chemist, or have an MBA, there's not much opportunity. The looming buyout by Halliburton has everyone on edge, as communication about who is going to lose their jobs is sparse. But the top level execs are all guaranteed big payouts. And just after announcing a record year, they layoff thousands of people, even though "people are one of their best assets."

    Advice to Management

    I guess management didn't mean it when they talked about beating Halliburton. They instead figured if you can't beat them, sell out to them.

    I worked at Baker Hughes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Traveling to various areas in the US to do field work, also receiving daily field pay. Health benefits, 401k, pension plan and stock all were very beneficial!!

    Cons

    Sugar Land location, very political and various mid management individuals were very messy. if they did not like you, they would find way to get you out the company. For instance, PIP, basically a paper trail that was merely a set up for failure for an individual. To many political chiefs and not enough indians. Also seemed like at Sugar Land, they wanted to hire all there friends from Champion and Nalco

    Advice to Management

    Be very selective of who you hire in management. Value to the work ethic of employees that put their all into the company when working and representing it in the public eye
