    I have been working at Baker Hughes

    Pros

    No different than SLB and HAL. Big companies ruining our industry and driving wages down.

    UNION IS NEEDED

    Cons

    No values, no work life balance and the pay sucks. Company forces employees to sign non-disclosure agreement which allows baker Hughes to fire employees without notice and for any reason deemed. The pay does not match the cost of living most companies pay 3x more than there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have become a company with out integrity who's focus is only on the companies profit. Baker Hughes does not deserve to be in Canada. I will go out of my way to turn people away from your company. Pay fare wages or suffer having a Union.
