    I worked at Baker Hughes full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has a very good work environment. Numerous learning opportunities throughout the career and a lot of global exposure to the industry.

    Cons

    It can sometimes be a little beaureaucratic because of its size. Also, promotions and individual growth may be slow unless ones works really hard on that. It is easy to get stuck doing the same job for many years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Annual performance review is a farce and not at at all tied to either performance or benefits.

    I have been working at Baker Hughes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Maintains a very manageable workforce, not too much so that the company does not need to reduce manpower at trouble times. Work place generally has a small group which works more like a family. Have strong ethical business principles and completely complaint.

    Cons

    Local management is not strong in many cases. Weak personnel team. Career guidelines not very well defined for all roles in local offices. Management most of the times focuses only on operations not on the data evaluation and interpretation market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to hire proper personnel (HR) managers, with proper knowledge of Oil and Gas business. Management should define and respect the career guidelines of all technical personnels.
