Great company, great benefits
Baker Petrolite (Former Employee), Pasadena, TXApril 1, 2014
Pros: great opportunity to make a lot of money fast.
Cons: there isn't any personal or family time due to understaffing, and high turn-overs.
Management is always a revolving door, In 7 years I had my performance review done by 5 different managers. Overall the company is a great company to be employed with. High turn over rate in the warehouse, always short staffed.

Completion Specialist(Engineer) IV (Former Employee), Midland, TXApril 1, 2014
Great company, However much of their best employees leave this company to higher paying competitor companies. The pay at Baker is lower end but the benefits and training is very good.

Fast Paced Customer Oriented Environment
Team Lead - Enterprise Pricing Team (Former Employee), Houston, TXApril 1, 2014
Pros: opportunity to meet people from all parts of the world.
Cons: there are none that come to mind
Through my years with Baker I was able to interact with many different individuals at all levels. Exposure to upper management was a good plus. Being a self motivated person is a must have for this corporation as they put a lot of stock in your ability to carry out your days tasks as well as spur of the moment tasks without having to be directed in – more... every step of the way and to me that is a great learning curve...keeps your mind sharp and your brain always thinking.

The only downside of the whole company is that not all of the management in various levels are true to the beliefs of the company in that fact of saying and being "employee oriented". The skill set of some of the middle management is very lacking, not all, but some. That was the most challenging part of my career at Baker and it was only in the last few years as the company began to change and remold.

Baker is an every changing company but change in good in most respects. You must be flexible and understand that change is a part of the scene. – less

Productive workplace with job security
Billing Specialist (Current Employee), Denver, COMarch 25, 2014
Pros: laid-back work environment
Cons: slow opportunity for advancement
Baker Hughes has a very laid back work environment - as long as the work is being completed correctly, management is happy. Along with the laid back work environment, the wardrobe is laid back as well - not too professional and jeans are allowed.
The opportunity for advancement is slow. Based out of Houston, TX, most of the corporate jobs are based – more... there as well. If you don't live in Houston, TX, the likelihood of moving up in specific departments, is slim. Management is supportive to a degree, but for the most part management expects you to be an independent worker. – less

A typical day at work while drilling
Trainee Mud-Logging Geologist (Current Employee), Papua New Guinea, Hela Province, Hides DrillingMarch 7, 2014
During drilling operations, it's fun to look at the samples and describe the lithology and its properties. The most interesting part is looking at the sandstones in the reservoir. Its very exciting while drilling the reservoir and seeing the hydrocarbon "gas" readings go up. However, when the ROP is fast that's when the job gets tough because you have – more... to collect the samples quickly, clean the ditch magnet and check on the gas traps frequently. The stuff here at the rig-site unit are good. – less
