    I worked at Baker Hughes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Exposure and involvement in many short and long-term projects. Fellow coworkers are pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Constant change that doesn't make any of the processes any more efficient for customer or developer(speaking from the IT environment). Because environment is constantly changing there is no stability and lack of knowledge about the business process. Work-life balance is not good. My group, for the most part, were working during their 'vacations', holidays and most weekends of the month due constant juggling of project priorities as determined by upper management. As is the case with some other companies, IT group is asked constantly to do more with less. But upper management should be at least filtering when the workload is near maximum capacity.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management should be listening to both the IT group and customers for scope and capacity of projects. Projects should not be shoved down the throat of IT group and simply say this has to be completed within a particular time frame. When it is apparent to the group that this time frame is only to help members of upper management meet yearly objectives/goals.

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

    Pros

    401 k is acceptable, their individual contribution to each employee retirement account is good.

    Cons

    Having to work with incompetent and totally unqualified personnel who are hurting overall stock performance.

    Advice to Management

    Do not be taken in by incompetent personnel who lie about potential growth in emerging chemical markets like Latin America. Their powerpoint presentations are full of photos and not hard facts. These people are taking advantage of a company that needs to focus totally on core oil services businesses and not produce raw materials for plastic cups, cosmetic lipsticks, inks, paints, etc.
