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

Pros

Good benefits, and decent exposure to field operations.

Cons

Lower on the pay scale, limited career opportunities, and inexperienced and/or non savvy management at the coordinator level at least as far as the NorthEastern operations are concerned. Limited communication if ever which breeds limited understanding and relationship between the field personnel and management. If you think you can use this as a stepping stone to move up within Baker as an educated person with a University degree.........well, i'm sorry you cant.

Advice to Management

Change the Coordinators to people who know how to do the job correctly and limit the attrition rates.

    Pros

    People are genuinely friendly
    Benefits aren't too bad
    The "political" game isn't as strong as at other companies
    Quality products/services
    Future performance of company should be good

    Cons

    Lack of vision by senior management for support functions
    Many necessary support functions are contracted out (and poorly at that)
    Lack of established processes
    Information sharing is poor
    Systems streamlining is poor (for example each product line developed their own SAP reports instead of standard reports serving all product lines)
    Waiting 5 years between each bump up in vacation time

    Advice to Management

    While the Baker One reorganization was a good idea, the execution has been severely lacking in everything but the sales/operations force. Someone with enough authority and budget needs to champion an efficiency initiative to streamline the support functions and establish best practices across all product lines.


  2. "Technically challenging and mentally demanding which makes it very exciting."
