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

Pros

leading technology, many experts in their field, well structured career path, commitment to training and development, travelling benefits

Cons

Lack of leadership at middle management level, poorly organized/synergied across the company since it was combined with so many smaller companies, let the support function play a role over the operation. especially HR, the biggest problem of the organization

Advice to Management

Run business on people not on the fansy system

    I worked at Baker Hughes full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It used to be a great company to work at, very good environment, great people, training, meeting different cultures, good management.

    Cons

    Last for years the company has lost decency, honesty, respect for the employees, too many layoffs very badly managed by HR and Legal managers.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to visit the geomarkets and interview the employees but not the managers, they are questionable in many places, you'll be surprised of what a terrible company BHI has turn into.

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

    Pros

    International company, diversity, leading edge technology, nice facility in Dubai HQ, cafeteria on sight, prayer rooms, nursing room for mothers, state of art training center, multicultural environment

    Cons

    Leadership changes its mind every couple of years and they restructure the entire organization. There is no 'change management' per se. They move the chips and let them land however they land. No consideration for impact on employees lives. The HR organization is extremely bloated with HR 'divas' earning way more than their Operations and Field counterparts yet they are a heavy cost and not revenue generating. Career advancement is based on who you know and the old boys club as opposed to real transparent competency based development on your own merit.

    Advice to Management

    Shed the fat in the middle, talk to your people, listen to the people on the ground.
