Field Supervisor (Former Employee) –  NDAugust 16, 2018
Pretty good other than pay is the lowest for position. Pay is not even half of the next lowest paid competitor. If the bonuses were bigger the employee retention would be way better.
Pros
Freedom, job challenge, coworkers
Cons
Pay

Tool Technician II (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 12, 2018
After the price of oil dropped, customers stopped buying deep water blow out preventers. We ran out of work and layed off a lot of people. Our shop failed to adapt to the market.

Oil Industry
Lead Biller for the Permian Region (Former Employee) –  Odessa, TXAugust 6, 2018
With the oil industry it is up and down and some jobs are not as secure. Good place to work unless the market takes a turn. The pay could be more competitive as we live in an area with a high living cost.

Good place to learn
Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 3, 2018
Massive company so every experience will be much different. Lots of resources to support you. SME's are just a phone call away. Management team has reacted to the great crew change by shifting decision making up and driving outcomes through rules and metrics. Makes middle management a paper pushing, checkbox completion exercise and often results in perverse incentives where an employees accountable for performing in a way that is contrary to the company's best interests.
Pros
Training, opportunities to change roles, advance
Cons
Tend to pay less than others

Good Company, but BIG
Chemical Service Rep (Former Employee) –  Clinton, OKJuly 29, 2018
If you don't get lost in the shuffle of thousands of employees, advancement can be easy to come by. They are BIG though, and perfectly good people can go unnoticed. Regardless, their benefits are top notch and their training is quite good.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Oilfield prices can dictate layoffs

Not the greatest place to work for but was alrigjht
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Claremore, OKJuly 28, 2018
I had 12 hour shifts. Worked nights with lead man that didn't stay at his work place. Did a lot of talking while other workers did their work. Hardest part of job was the staying up 12 hours a night. The most enjoyable part was that we had comfortable working conditions inside wasn't burning up or freezing to death
Pros
good working conditions
Cons
they will lay you off after seven years

Watch your back, culture of lazy employees poor management
Cnc machinist (Former Employee) –  The Woodlands, TXJuly 25, 2018
Not what I was expecting from a big company like baker Hughes since they merged with GE there is no overtime the yearly bonus and raise are very low now GE wants to sell baker Hughes because they are not making no money, all the cnc machines lathes or mill are hands free and everything is pre set for you pretty much all you are is a button pusher not a real machine shop, the management is very poor they go base of what they guys in day shift say pretty much the old machinist in day shift run the shop the supervisor are never there all they care is about the numbers and that’s it, you have to watch your back people go around spying to see if you are working or not they even take pictures and go tell management also if you are making too much production and you are making the guy in day shift look bad they will tell you too slow down or just change your offsets or move tools out more so you would crash your machine would not recommend this place at all specially if you are a real machinist.

Priorities
AMO Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Evansville, WYJuly 22, 2018
The up and down cycle of the energy market can be discouraging and take an emotional toll over time. Expect that it will be very busy at times and when the market is down learn to anticipate what is going to happen. Overall a good experience with a lot of training and development as well as dealing with a wide variety of people globally. You are required to wear many different hats as there are a lot of different priorities handed out from the organization which can be difficult to manage at times. It is important to manage the stress and keep your work / life balance in order to be successful.
