Good place to work

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
great hours, if you need time off they are pretty flexible. Never have had issues over the past 10 years of employment. Advancements are hard to come by.

Field Life Is Tough

US Land works you as much as possible. Schedules are an idea but not a reality. It is difficult to plan appointments, vacation, and time with your family. PTO does not fully compensate you for what you earn when in the field.

Not the best place to work

I used to work there as a field operator in Cement Department. Always being on call so schedule was unpredictable. District management had to much control and ran the the place their way, to much favoritism and was hard to advance. Turnover was about 50%. Pay was ok if you came without any skills, but getting raise was difficult because upper management was changing the progression plan every year and signing the equipment as main factor of increasing the pay was not easy because of the poor training program they had in the place. If you have any other education trying to utilize it and move up to different position in the company good luck with that, was very hard and turn to be not that lucrative in the end since this job is sensitive to the oil market and goes down every 5 years. Other then that lots of time was easy work but sometimes you had to work in bad weather after being on clock for a lots of hours. If you work with good guys around you might like this job but I would not try to make career out of it.

Not much room for advancement

There was not much room for advancement/career progression even mentioned to managers. Work was fast paced and highly reactive and sometimes required us to be on-call.

Pros

good health insurance, 401k

Cons

lower than industry pay, lots of work

Good company to work for

you will work long hours but be rewarded with good pay and benefits. The oilfield is not for anyone but if you stick it out it will reward you with a great career.

productive and fun work place with a habit of under paying and over working employees

Baker Hughes/RS, like many companies, was effected by covid and the great resignation. However, where many companies adapted to the times and offered competitive salary and work life balance, RS management took the opportunity to cut head count and increase remaining employee workloads. In addition, RS does not offer annual cost of living/market raise adjustments. Pay is entirely based on years at the company, and independent of initiative taken or personal growth within roles.

Good company to work for

Enjoyed my time with Baker Hughes before the industry slowdown. Long hours and a lot of time away from home. Often traveled out of state but they were good about honoring scheduled days off.

Pros

Good compensation

Cons

Rigorous schedule

Job Security

Throughout the downturns and pandemic my job was safe. Benefits are very good. Advancement not so much. Management definitely could use advice and training.

It was a great company to work for

I enjoyed my 6 years there and wouldn’t ever be against going back. But being oil you only get back as much as your willing to put in. Used to be some of the best benefits before ownership changed hands so many times.

Good benefits not so great pay

401k is good. Unlimited time off is nice. Pay raises don't happen often and pay isn't equal to what else is out there currently. People are great though.

Pros

401k, unlimited time off

Cons

Not enough pay raises, pay seems better elsewhere

A productive and good work place for leaning. Suitable for progression and a great team building company with history of of accomplishment

A good company to work for with a great benefits and greater opportunity to progress within the company. I felt good with the way the communication was set up. Effective communication helped to aid the deliverables and consolidations.

Not the same place I hired on

I had worked for Baker Hughes for a long time and with the constant changes happening in the past few years, it is a completely different company. The old company actually felt like a family company, even though it was still large. I had good managers who fought to get you raises and advancement. Not the case anymore. Constant manager changes. Don’t count on loyalty or job security after being there for many years. They will lay you off without offering other opportunities or any notice. Even while emails are being sent about growth and new jobs coming. A very disappointing end to a long career.

Good place to learn but a bad long term career.

Keep your head down, get your 3 years in and get out. The difference in an employee who works hard and one who doesn’t do anything is about a 1 percent hourly increase per year.

Pros

Good first machinist job

Cons

Culture, pay

Typical American corporation. Don’t care about human beings. Only care about money

People and their quality of life are irrelevant to this company. Management’s only concern is that you make money and your margins are covered. Some people receive support and others are left on their own to figure everything out. Management is awful.

Pros

Compensation

Cons

Company has no interest in you as a human being.

Its ok for a paycheck

Management could improve. You really feel just a number and not really a team. Its something you go to for a job thats really it. They tell you one thing and promise you things until you get hired on then its a completely different conversation

Pros

Money is good and benefits

Cons

Promises are not kept and favorites are chosen

Good place to work

Honest management. No pressure to cook the books as an accountant. Often got comp time for working extra at month end and quarter end close. Reasonable amount of personal autonomy to do your job without micromanagement.

Pros

remote work

Cons

management via crisis

No employee loyalty at all

This company will run field service people into the ground. Pay has been cut to all time lows. Any sign of slow down in work they WILL LAY YOU OFF in the blink of an eye. They will sit you at home for months on end and not pay you a dime.

Pros

Direct managers are good.

Cons

No job security, at all, none
Was this review helpful?

They really cared about their employees

I'd be there forever if it wasn't for layoffs, great company to work for, awesome benefits. Was like a family. I for sure would work there again if all possible.

Pros

Lots of work events

Cons

Layoffs are common
