The division i worked in was a small division, profitable and was sold off to an investment firm which downsized it immediately, so laid off.
The local management and staff was very knowledgeable as well as easy going and very supportive.

I had a meaningful job at Baker Hughes but got cut short due to the oil market crash and COVID-19. The people really made the job enjoyable and the technical challenges kept me wanting to always learn more.

Good company to work for, but currently going through a downsizing that makes you wonder if they ever will come back to be a meaningful force in the market place.

Not sure exactly why I was released, except that the oil and gas industry was in the throws of the Coronavirus. There were multiple rounds of layoff, and the particular area I was located in was actually sold off. Management seems to be decent.

A good company to work for when oil prices are high but one needs to be prepared to be let go as soon as market situation changes. However, for those who can take the risk and have a job with no job security, this could be a good company.

I worked at the Coiled Tubing Research and Engineering Group based in Calgary. Excellent professional environment, where collaboration to reach group goals was the norm. Excellent learning experience and the technical work completed allowed me to project myself within the coiled tubing industry

Office personnel are supportive of each other. The company itself is very large. You must be self sufficient and motivated. Salary for position was a little on the low side.

Typical oilfield hours, slow in the spring trying to get shop hours in and decent pay, on the call jobs, no matter if it was 3 in the afternoon or the middle of the night, we drove to lease sites for pumping operations. Coworkers were pretty good, the job itself was long hours and stressful at times, but eventually the company shut down the shop I was working at and laid everybody off.
Pros
Had good hours
Cons
no job security

The Baker Hughes Completions division was generally a good place to work. The district managers were good to work with and were supportive.
Most of my co-workers were team players

Overall, a good place to work. Can come in at any time and close a plant, etc. As the decision is usually made from somewhere else without warning. Subject to oil; price swings.
Pros
Can get overtime
Cons
Don't always have a feeling of job security
