Baker Hughes to undergo another round of job cuts

Baker Hughes Inc. sent a letter to the Texas Workforce Commission on October 4 as notification of additional job cuts to its Houston office. 

In December, the company expects to cut 62 jobs, mostly financial, as part of an ongoing company reorganization. The jobs affected are mostly financial, and include accounting clerks and credit analysts.

The company is in the process of a reorganization that started early in the year when it announced it would let go of nearly 3,000 employees. Then, in August, the company announced its plans to merge with BJ Services in a $5.5 billion transaction.
