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

Pros

Some genuinely good people working there

Cons

Senior management generally consists of 'friends appointing friends'
Massive blame culture (scapegoating)
Genuine enmity from senior managements to anyone that points out errors
Lack of expertise in senior management
Ignores employee needs
No communication or outright deception by senior management
Falsification of records to meet government requirements is commonplace
False data sent by individual geomarkets to regions and HQ
Substandard pay but only certain people get raises
No vision for the future
Massively understaffed
Direct lies told to clients when bidding and reporting on work
Expectation that a person only has the Company in their life
Ridiculous expectations
Everythign either has no priority or must be done tommorrow. No middle ground

Advice to Management

Actually run a company not a club for your friends that victimizes anyone who is not in your little clique

    Great work culture, Good Teamwork and flexibily for working style.The Managers are understanding and allow subordinates to work freely with minimum supervision.This allows employees to have a good work-home balance.

    Cons

    Slow and undefined career path.Although the company is a great place to work, it can get a bit slow and stagnant sometimes.It gets undefined after a certain point of time and people look for more challenging oppotunities.

    Pros

    -employees are very warm and helpful.

    Cons

    -improve upon the projects given to MBAs, overall they were at the undergrad level.
    -staffing of interns seemed suspect since engineers were put on a business position, so their complaining and lack of interest in the subject was a pain.
