Good benefits but too much stress and blaming employees
Account Manager/Sales Upstream Chemicals (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 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.
Apprentice Mechanic (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 14 October 2016
I worked a 8 day on and 6 day off shift which was excellent, most days included preventive maintenance programme for all equipment supplemented with any other repairs that may come up during the course of a day. We worked in teams of four which gave us the advantage of combined experience and knowledge to easy perform any task. The group of techs I was fortunate enough to work with made me feel right at home an were never to busy to answer any questions. The only thing I found unfortunate was that being such a big company it was sometimes hard to go through the chain of command to get approval for work being done
Great employee benefits all around a good company to work for.
Supervisor Trainee (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 18 August 2016
I have no complaints with Baker Hughes. I simply want to work closer to home. Working on the road makes time spent with co-workers extensive but luckily all my co workers are easy going and we all work well together.
Pipeline Data Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 June 2016
It is a place to belong and to become. Gives room for professional growth. The senior employees are always ready to give you a hand when needed. It was nice working in Baker Hughes.
The job was about analyzing pipeline data to detect magnetic anomaly I learnt a new software used to analyse detected magnetic anomaly to determine the depth of corrosion The management are welcoming and helpful to the employee's improvement The hardest part would be when a particular section of the pipeline is severely corroded The most enjoyable part was when the pipeline under analysis is not too corroded
Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) – Toronto/Calgary – 9 May 2016
We are a great team of Mechanical and Electrical Engineers and technicians working in the Product Research and Development for the Pipeline Inspection Tools. The atmosphere at work is great, peaceful cooperation, we have the same goal, to create competitive Inline Inspection Tools. Also our Management is great. They do not have a critical position toward our activity but rather an attitude of help and support. Of course, if we need to respect a tight deadline, we understand to work overtime. But it is a rewarding effort.
