    Pros

    I really enjoy working at BP because they treat their people well. The work is enjoyable, the atmosphere is pleasant, and interaction with each other is encouraged. Personal wellness is stressed and I feel like at the end of the day, the company does care and will take care of you.

    Cons

    Like all big business, the bureaucratic aspects of the job can become overwhelming at times. It occasionally feels like there is so much process involved that it becomes difficult to sort through it all and actually do our jobs.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency is always good, especially in times of uncertainty. I am a big believer that knowing what's going on, versus being in the dark and wondering or getting paranoid, is always better.

    The people who interviewed me are very friendly. They asked behavioral questions as well as some technical questions. They sometimes began to keep notes as you were answering them --- don't need to worry if they do that.
