    Pros

    Strong focus on safety after 2010 GOM spill. Excellent 401K match and pension program.

    Cons

    Difficult to make progress with the amount of planning and approvals that need to happen to conduct even early stage research. Not all members of the leadership team demonstrate the core values and behaviors that BP focuses on.

    Pros

    Good benefits and work life balance. Great people!

    Cons

    HR is going to force all to leave. Upper management is tribal. Huge amount of process and policy since the spill and think the best way is to follow the Exxon model. Motto is to layoff senior people and train juniors, a item that was listed as a reason for the spill...the best thing can happen to these guys is to get bought by exxon or another that can manage business.

    Advice to Management

    Promote competent people not just those who know how to brown nose. Senior management needs to align its messages from the top to the worker bee.

  8. Good benefits and compensation, but poor culture.

    Pros

    Competitive compensation and benefits. The bonus and pension package are great.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. The decision making is hampered by poor culture and the "good ole boy" leadership. There is a ton of non-necessary bureaucracy!

    Advice to Management

    "Really" change the organizational culture to effectively improve decision making and process safety.

    Pros

    Overall, the work-life balance is good, and the pay is competitive. There are great facilities including two gyms for everyone to use, and great cafeterias.

    Cons

    The company is constantly going through a re-org, but this time it seems like much of the work is being shipped offshore to India. Those that are still around are left with the work enough for two or three people. The young talent are leaving for greener pastures instead of having to deal with the headache or re-orgs and compounding work.

    Advice to Management

    It probably won't matter until the oil spill trial is settled.
