"I always respected this company Baker Hughes. But as times went on they have become corrupt. No feelings for their employees whatsoever. They talk about safety, but it's just to cover their legal right. Remember these questions are based on the last days at Baker and the so called takeover with Halliburton and the oil field downturn."

"Working for this monster is ok if you like being just a number. In being an analyst, there isn't much room for growth unless you want to talk to and deal with customers and the stress that comes with the growth."

"Baker Hughes is a good company to work for. The work can be challenging. Hours can be long. Sometimes the goals that are set are just totally unrealistic. They have decided to go with micro-management, as employees cannot be trusted. I do have a problem with that. Typically, the wrong people are rewarded for a job well done, because credit is taken away from the right people."

Wireline Specialist

"I only worked there for a year, but in that year, I worked an average of 90hrs/wk and was not compensated for my time as well as others in my same position in the same company in other locations. BHI can be a great company to work for, if you find the right position. Wireline out of the Pearland, TX office is not it."

"Worked for them for little over 2 years. The product division I am responsible for supporting is a mess and I really don't understand how the company in general was able to obtain ISO9001 certification. Many of the designs and BOMs are incomplete or with serious errors, many things are not documented. Trying to find alternate source components sometimes can be a nightmare as many parts do not have original datasheet, and could not easily find an alternate."

"Challenging environment in the IT group. Cost constraints limit quality of solution delivered to the business units. Projects based on very limited scope. Considerable waste in completing many projects. BHI oil/gas services businesses are often annoyed by its IT ability to deliver."

"This company laid me off as well as God knows how many others for reasons that were undisclosed. This chagrins me as they had just launched a fancy new rewards system to thank employees. Kind of hard to thank your co-worker for a job well done when he/she is laid off the next day! This company needs to get it's head together. It's too busy shuffling everybody around to effectively make positive change and people are constantly leaving to work for competitors, which I now understand why!"
