Lack of direction
Design Engineer (Former Employee) –  Caerphilly14 April 2019
The legacy GE Oil & Gas business has great quality, and risk management and offers a respectable benefits package. The addition of Baker Hughes (upstream services) to the portfolio brings GE closer to their core customers.

Huge possibility to progress if the face fits. In the main great people to work with. Reward success regularly. Great Christmas parties! Senior Managers within the local office really helpful and easy to work for.

Lack of real direction within the business. Ever changing priorities. Too many people seem to rotate jobs periodically, furthering their own careers while leaving a trail of incompetence in their wake.Basic salary not great within the industry. Too easy for the business to manipulate figures and scoop up the bonus.

Used to be a great company, not so much nowdays.
Offshore (Former Employee) –  North Sea14 April 2019
As an offshore company they seem to have drifted far from their original goals. Pushing the offshore workload to an unattainable volume. The work life balance is almost non-existent with the assumption that we can be deployed offshore with a days notice. You cannot plan your life with this level of uncertainty. They have stopped all career development and have resorted to hiring in consultants as the norm, staff are left to assist with training and support for the contractors. The pension and benefits package has been altered and as such, the pension contributions are 1/4 of total income, which is far short of industry standard.
Pros
None.
Cons
Unbalanced life schedule, no future career development.

Not the Company it used to be
HR Manager (Current Employee) –  UK2 April 2019
Being bought over by GE was the worst thing that happened to Baker Hughes, its not the Company it used to be. Too much focus on the bottom line and not enough focus on employee wellbeing, moral and career satisfaction.

It all changed after the merger
Senior Engineer (Former Employee) –  Aberdeen, Aberdeen City19 February 2019
Worked for GE Oil & Gas for many years prior to the merger with Baker Hughes. All the GE corporate leadership were replaced by self centered, aggressive industry types. Became an unpleasant place to work.

Senior Engineering Planner (Former Employee) –  Bristol, Bristol22 January 2019
Can't really speculate, as I worked there when it was just GE Oil & Gas.

They were using god planning tools at the time I worked there - Primavera P6, which I believe mad a positive impact on their engineering planning capabilities.

Can be very demanding
Field Engineer (Former Employee) –  United Kingdom18 December 2018

Workplace culture is based on safety and integrity.

Management sometimes miss that their staff might be struggling with issues and seem result/promotion driven.
Pros
Reasonable benefits
Cons
Often excessive hours to meet need

Excellent opportunities to travel but work life balance can be very poor with lots of job pressures. Lots of opportunity to move up through the ranks in small and dynamic teams.

fails to mesh in
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Nailsea26 August 2018
From the beginning apprentices are not told at their interview they will be doing rotating shift work (6.30am start early shift and midnight finish late shift). I would not recommend anyone's child to travel back from work at midnight. Very risky behind the wheel for anyone feeling tired from a company that drains all energy from you. The company is very slow and inefficient with many documentation errors. Their test equipment appears to have major creation and support problems which could end the company of all profits. There is a sloping shoulders culture where problems are thrown around with lots of meetings producing a blame culture. I have been on some good company trips abroad and have been head hunted by other companies. There is a wide gap work culture between the shop floor and the offices. Apparently the shop floor staff had their flexible hours discontinued so the day staff have to start work at a fixed 7.30am. No good if you have a young family to look after.
Pros
multicultural and travel opportunities
Cons
loss of purpose and segration
