    Pros

    Great people
    Lots of opportunities across functions and around the world

    Cons

    60,000 employees - it is harder to work through some of the red tape
    New employees don't always assimilate well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look past the bearer of good news - there is information "cleansing" going on to remove the negative issues as it moves up the chain of command. It may not be as rosy as portrayed

    I worked at Baker Hughes full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some genuinely good people working there

    Cons

    Senior management generally consists of 'friends appointing friends'
    Massive blame culture (scapegoating)
    Genuine enmity from senior managements to anyone that points out errors
    Lack of expertise in senior management
    Ignores employee needs
    No communication or outright deception by senior management
    Falsification of records to meet government requirements is commonplace
    False data sent by individual geomarkets to regions and HQ
    Substandard pay but only certain people get raises
    No vision for the future
    Massively understaffed
    Direct lies told to clients when bidding and reporting on work
    Expectation that a person only has the Company in their life
    Ridiculous expectations
    Everythign either has no priority or must be done tommorrow. No middle ground

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually run a company not a club for your friends that victimizes anyone who is not in your little clique

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
