I understand, there are many reasons why they are only interested in share prices. However, I don't know for how long they will be able to manipulate the various cuts all because of the share price. I wouldn’t say it’s sustainable for long. I... — read more

I’m surrounded with a few bu-t kissing cult following worshipers of BH. These people treat the rest of us like lower class citizens and are lazy as he-l. Everyone argues about work and will push back with all the bureaucracy that is famous at Baker... — read more
How much has changed? There are many who say that nothing's changed at all.
Question: With BH making energy transition and boasting green energy technology, why is BH supporting the increase of onshore and offshore upstream drilling projects. Is BH just putting out into the media what everyone wants to hear? I’ve been... — read more

I’ve had my fill of management only looking out for themselves and screwing everyone else. I’ve had my fill of coworkers who smile to your face and stab you in the back when you’re not looking. Eight years at BH and enough is enough for me. So glad... — read more
How is everything going with the completions plant ?
I’m a Waygate employee but used to be Baker. Are there any layoff rumors for the Waygate/Digital business units?
It might be better for me to do just the bare minimum as most people advise, but despite all the stories about big organizational changes, I still try to give my best. It is not easy switch your attention from cuts and focus on work. However, only... — read more

Rumor has it that there are big organizational changes happening. Oh wait, that’s all the time. Are they playing the musical chair music yet? Time to stand up.
How much is "more than 80 jobs"? If they say that 80 jobs at Montrose are at risk of redundancy, I believe there will be at least twice as many at risk. Unfortunately.
Hello? Aptara, where are you? Where have you gone? I'm hoping someone has an answer to this, the whole project simply disappeared 😕.
