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

    Pros

    The compensation and benefits were very good. The office roles I held were very reasonable with work/life balance. I had very good direct managers throughout my time with Baker Hughes, and I enjoyed working with most everyone I interacted with.

    Cons

    The oil and gas market over the last 6 years has been a rollercoaster. The down markets are horrible for service companies and subsequently can lead to a more stressful work environment. Also, upward movement within the company can be slow unless you are well connected.

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

    Pros

    Great Infrastructure. Free snacks, work-life balance

    Cons

    Baker Hughes lacks any integrity. The most awful place I have EVER worked. The company has lost its way since the GE acquired and sold it. Chaotic, nothing is in it's place including managers, everything runs based on relationships, horrible management, you don't know what's going to happen tomorrow, constantly changing rules,positions, people etc... and by constantly I mean too often like monthly!!. Horrible managers bad communication and a lot of lies throughout the entire company. Most recently laid of 75 employees last week. Majority of upper management was NOT sympathetic at all to the employees that were let go.Management is rude and snobbish. A lot of bullying from management and co-workers. Not a learning environment. Everyone is worried about covering up looking good.They do not care about their workers, everyone is miserable, any sort of motivation was very surface level.It is a very toxic culture. Everyone is always terrified of getting in trouble.
