    I worked at Baker Hughes

    Pros

    competitive wages, benefits, holiday pay, chances for advancement if you're into brown nosing, newer equipment, some nice supervisors and field guys

    Cons

    merged with BJ services in Nov 2011, took over in Jan 2012 and laid off all BJ legacy employees May 1, 2012
    a very deceitful company
    layoffs without any notice
    zero respect for their employees even when employees are compliant with all demands.
    employees sacrificed the ultimate by leaving their families for weeks at a time and BHI thanked them by laying them off with no warnings.
    lowest company morals and values than any other company in the gas/oil industry
    about the $$$$ instead of their employees
    no communications with employeess by senior management
    severance package is a joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get some morals and have respect for your employees. you seem to forget that they are what keep your company running. Stop wrecking lives by over hiring and then laying off.

    I have been working at Baker Hughes

    Pros

    The people are genuinely good-natured and colleagues are often very close. There is opportunity for advancement and ample training in most groups.

    Cons

    The company is still experiencing some growing pains since moving from a division structure to a regional structure; however, the goal remains to put the customer's needs first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep employees informed about organizational changes. Listen to employees when they say that they need more people on their teams and respond by hiring accordingly; many groups are understaffed.
