  3. "HR departments are the pits of bureaucracy"

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Baker Hughes full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Other than The HR department everything is good

    Cons

    HR departments are the pits of bureaucracy HR departments are formally responsible for providing professional advice, support and guidance to staff in line with employment legislation and best practice. Their role is in essence to ensure that an organization achieves its long-term objectives by helping it to attract, recruit, retain and reward the best talent. However, in our experience, they more often act as a hindrance/ dictator with a mindset that engineering department needs to justify their purpose to HR, rather than the other way around. Even though the engineering orgs are generating the revenue to pay their salary check For instance, can you assume that HR will assist with advertising a post, arranging an interview or seeking references: this will invariably be “devolved” or “outsourced” to you or to the third party recruiters. Only once you succeed in recruiting a suitable candidate does HR move in – to bury them in bureaucracy.
