Great place to work.
Service Operator (Contractor) (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB23 June 2017
Management are very approachable and they will listen to what you have to say.
Everybody wants to see everybody succeed and no body fail.
I have a better view on what goes on down stream on the oil and gas industry.
It can be hard being away from for so long in camp or always on the road.
Pros
Great Guys to work with. Everbody takes the timto help each other
Cons
Sort notice when you got to go in the field

Good benefits but too much stress and blaming employees
Account Manager/Sales Upstream Chemicals (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB22 April 2017
Recent changes in management and company direction have changed company from a great place to work to a stressful environment. They used to pride themselves on winning business the honest way and standing by their employees. It has now become a place where you hear of greasy sales tactics and employees are always worried it may be their last day. No trust or respect from management towards employees. Other districts may be better.

Shop Hand (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB12 April 2017
I enjoyed working for Baker Hughes. Even though it was just for a short period, I learn so much from my manager, supervisor, mentor, and co-workers. Everyone pretty much had a sense of humor.
Pros
Just doing anything around the shop was a good experience
Cons
Smelling of cleaning solvents

lots of work depending on where you are. different areas are busier than others due to changes in oil and the time of year. not a lot of chance to advance within.

Evening Shift Supervisor/Leadhand (Former Employee) –  Leduc, AB7 February 2017
Working for Baker-Hughes was amazing, they had everything and more you'd expect a great company to have (great pay, benefits, room for advancement, pool table, etc...) however as the company grew and switched to Baker One the job basically felt like working for a faceless corporation. Started bringing in people from the outside to run the shop and pretty much killed the culture and chemistry we worked to build together as a team. Amazing first 6 to 7 years though.

decent company to work for but management issues were prevelant
Business Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Lloydminster, AB1 February 2017
Found the company to have great benefits for medical ect. Vacation on par with provincial labour standards but working enviroment within this division company was extremey stressful and operations manager was not clear on job expectaions during the hiring process. Upon starting the position I quickly found the description i was given not at all accurate to what I was actually doing on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. I was not given any training other than a book with some basic procedures.

This company was in the process of a merger and was cutting back all resources including contractors. As a result all the existing resources were depleted and work began increasing difficult to make time lines.
Pros
No Pros
Cons
Lack of resources to manage the day to day activities.

Field Specialist - Measurement While Drilling (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB30 December 2016
No job schedule makes personal life hard to manage. Overall the work is pretty good and most people you work with are enjoyable. If there was a set schedule it might not be such a bad job. Lots of travel and being away from home

Poor Corporate Management
SENIOR ENGINEER (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB22 December 2016
This company is an example of how the share holders dictate how a company is to be run to the ruling class in Houston. They do not car about the people, advancement, work culture. Pay is good but management is terrible. This also goes for the local managers, most of those who do not care and are only interested in keeping their own jobs.
