I enjoyed working there, but it was during the "Bakken boom". Everything was in rush mode and information was all e-mail or DM. I was never really sure if I was doing things right or wrong, but when I asked, I was just told to keep doing what I was doing. The trigger for my resignation was the lack of work expectations for others having political advantage and seniority.
Pros
Merit is noticed and rewarded.
Cons
Seniority and politics tainted work equality.

If you mess up you have to worry for 9 to 1 months to wait on HR to terminate you. There’s no warnings or write ups just straight discharge. I had an 5 star safety records and one mistake cost me my job.
Pros
None
Cons
I could go on and on

A systematic removal of all legacy Baker Hughes employees . The new Baker is all GE . It’s no longer a company that cares for its employees. It’s unfortunate as the legacy Baker was an awesome place to work

Work life balance was tough for me. I worked a lot of overtime and being salaried, it made it very difficult. I would happily work for them again though as they took good care of me financially.

Huge company with operations everywhere. Main focus on technology is high-end targeting offshore and international work, understandably so. As with most comparable companies, when the O&G market is good, Baker is good, when down, re-orgs layoffs, and the dark cloud hangs over. But I had good training, great benefits, lower pay than others but everything is relative. I enjoyed and am appreciative of my time there.
Pros
Cheap, quality insurance coverage, Employee stock program, 401K match, Strong brand
Cons
Big company, a lot of middle management, frequently changing strategies

I worked wireline as an operator, Baker Hughes was always bring in different engineers for me to work with when I was the only knowledgeable operator. This ran me into the ground. The engineers that were brought in were sub par at best. I routinely was fishing with these engineers. My last year there I was on five different jobs that turned into fishing.
Pros
Operators, my engineer, and equipment
Cons
Everything else

Great company, great benefits. Oil and gas is tuff industry to work in. Sometimes decision making is difficult with such a large company. Poor roll out of initiatives.

Most of my difficulties were with an unfortunate manager and a lackluster team. However from what I witnessed and was exposed to in other product lines, most teams were supportive of each other and had good management.

Terrible company to work for. They will use you to their gain then dispose of you the moment work slows. They will then try and rehire you and start you out at your original salary.
Cons

I would feel better if they didn’t cut 100% of our salary to save money and yet not cut salaries for anyone else in the company, at the same time they wouldn’t let us change our insurance elections so if we haven’t worked in a while we will be paying Baker Hughes to go to work just to catch up on our insurance, I wanted to cancel all insurances but they wouldn’t let me. As a field service engineer we are the front line to the customers, as they keep preaching, but we are the first ones they cut, now I really understand how Baker Hughes feels about the people in the field that are away from home most of their lives, living on fast food. In all of my years working field services and through all the ups and downs I have never seen a company like this cut field service engineers. We had a meeting, they guaranteed we, US employees, would be the first ones used for jobs in the US. That was a lie they are still bringing in Mexicans and Italians while we sit at home starving, the lady running our division is from Mexico and the second in charge is from Italy, so go figure. Wish we could do I something about it but I looks like we only have one choice.
Pros
I love the work
Cons
They never have done what they said they’ll do, shame on them.

Baker Digital Technology has the most political people. The HR director is really a mean nasty lady who is good for nothing. She has the most inefficient HR management I have seen in my 25+m years of career. She is vindictive, and rule by fear. There's an admin in the department and she acts above the CEO and extremely rude and mean. This place runs like a mafia.
