fine
Shop and Office Assistant (Former Employee) –  Casper, WYNovember 13, 2017
I think this was a very cutthroat environment. I would work here again. There was a lack of communication in this job though. It was a great stepping stone.

Volatile
HSE Specialist (Current Employee) –  Denver, CONovember 13, 2017
Work place environment was good, but market is too volatile. With the crash in oil and gas, too many people had to be let go. Merger with GE has become stressful for a lot of people.

Great salary & benefits but poor job security
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 9, 2017
Great salary & benefits, but starting to become less so over the past 18 months. The support & priority of good project management is hit or miss depending on the department and/or the direct management. Working from home is not a very wide-spread practice. Job security has become issue since the drop in oil prices & after the merger with GE.
Pros
Pay & Benefits

Design Drafter / Documents Specialist (Former Employee) –  Claremore, OKNovember 9, 2017
Company with great benefits, People are really friendly and willing to teach you. Very low-pressure environment. Room to grow professionally. A negative is that is based on oil and gas so lay-offs can be expected.

Bought out
Lead Welder (Former Employee) –  Tomball, TXNovember 4, 2017
The company I worked for was bought by Baker. Within months it was apparent they were running it into the ground. Management had no clue what we did or how we did it.

Baker Hughes is an overall good company
Chemical Representative (Former Employee) –  Freer, TXNovember 1, 2017
The benefits, hourly wage, insurance, stock options, and discount are just some of the perks available, when working at Baker Hughes. Some management lacked leadership, but I really am grateful in having a job there. The lack of consistency is the only major problem with the oil field.
Pros
Awesome Benefits, Hourly wages, Discounts, Stock options.
Cons
In consistent market, oil boom to bust

Stressful, fast-paced
Senior HSEnvironmental Rep (Former Employee) –  Sand Springs, OKOctober 27, 2017
I felt stressful since receiving a new manager who was intimidating with the requirements of the position which were made from his perception and not necessarily from the position with the position. I felt I was being singled out as this manager treated me as a servant where no other managers treated employees as this.
Pros
Money was good
Cons
Worked 12 hours plus per day

Productive workplace with challenging work schedule
Field Engineer (Former Employee) –  Williston, NDOctober 27, 2017
Typical day at work was overseeing completions operations on location. Learned about completions design. Management was good at encouraging progress. The workplace culture was positive and everyone was there for the same reason. The hardest part of the job was the hours and lack of time off when working. Also, living conditions available for the area were a downside. The most enjoyable part of the job was the time off every few weeks for rotation.

Mediocre place to work
Radiation Safety Officer at ballistics facility (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 22, 2017
Very difficult to advance. Do not get the feeling that this company values their employees. Management seems to make one decision after the other in that they exercise poor judgement.
