I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Baker is a great company to work for. Since they are a global company there is lots of room for growth. With the recent acquisition of BJ services they are still undergoing lots of changes which can be good or bad depending your what you're looking for

Cons

The executive team seem political, which is common with most large companies. I think they could do a better job of casting vision for the entire organization. Sometimes it feels like we don't have clear objectives. They are currently using saba.com to help create alignment, great idea, but my managers don't seem to know how to leverage to tool and it is only looked at once or twice per year

Advice to Management

Train, train, train your managers. Cast vision and communicate openly. Don't be afraid to talk straight. Embrace social media, it's nothing to be scared of.

    I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people
    Lots of opportunities across functions and around the world

    Cons

    60,000 employees - it is harder to work through some of the red tape
    New employees don't always assimilate well

    Advice to Management

    Look past the bearer of good news - there is information "cleansing" going on to remove the negative issues as it moves up the chain of command. It may not be as rosy as portrayed

    Pros

    good money that is the only pro

    Cons

    unable to have a family life at all. Told 5 days off 10 on when hired. Then never happens. Family torn apart by this.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the employees that make you money. There are too many families being broke apart because of your day off policies. Very unfair and uncaring company
