Senior Field Engineer (FE-III) (Former Employee), India – March 30, 2013
Pros: learning management techniques & resulting in overall development.
Cons: growth rate is slow as compare to other similar type of organisations.
It had a team working environment with opportunity of get exposed to both, operations in field & office management. The co-workers are co-ordinated & self motivated to do a good job. The difficult part of the job was to manage balance between personal & professional life. This happened due to less available man power & excess job responsibilities. The – more... most enjoyable part was working within & constant learning abut Oil & Gas industry, High level of responsibilities for managing associated projects, handling major client & being a focal point of the project you work in that gives a more energy to keep going. – less

Pros: flexible work schedule
Cons: salaries could be better
Excellent company to work for. Company functions made you feel accepted and valued. Manangers were knowledgable and weren't put in place because of a degree. Experience workers also got fair shots at better positions. Hardest part was the pace. Always busy. Everything was enjoyable about this company.

I came into the warehouse in the morning and got to work they had me in alot of different positions such as, shipping and recieving, processing, moving and breaking down shelves.

Certified Machinist (Current Employee), Houston,Tx – April 15, 2013
Pros: forty hours are always guaranteed weekly.
Cons: lack of being able to progress within the company
Baker Hughes is a great company to work for, you are constantly learning new things. When it comes to management, I feel as if they do not meet basic qualifications or standards to efficiently perform their job duties or problems that arise daily during operation. My co-workes at Baker Hughes are great to work with, they are willing to help you at anytime – more... with any problem if they are aware on how to fix it. The hardest part of this job is trying to get overtime throughout the week, and the most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that ever part I machine is 100% to blueprint. I take pride in my job beacuse I enjoy what I do. – less
Breaking News: Baker Hughes is NOT what its cracked up to be!!
HR (Former Employee), Houston – April 15, 2013
Pros: i left
A company of that magnitude does not have a training program for their new hires.
Management is unorganized and they micro manage the employees. When hired you are made salaried and they expect you to work long hours and of course you dont get any extra compensation or comp time. Morale was horrible!!
Supervisors are clueless on how to manage employees!! – more... They were promoted without any type of training on how to lead a team, motivate a team or create a positive work atmosphere. They don't want you to socialize with coworkers even though most people work through their breaks and lunch. Its modern day slavery to be honest.
There is NO SUCH THING AS WORK LIFE BALANCE. Long hours and expect you to work from home.
Lots of favoritism!!!! Dont expect a promotion unless you are one of the "favorites". HR is the one department that should follow company policies and rules but they dont.
I would not recommend this company to my worst enemy...just being honest. – less
