    As an employer

    Supervisor (Former Employee) Whiting, IN

    ProsGood company to work. Good wage scale. Decent benefits. Company match 401k. Union backed employees have a great wage rate. Empowerment in some areas a plus. Good team ethic among employees.

    ConsMost work outdoors, really cold winters. Upper management changing. More concern with bottom line rather than people oriented like AMOCO. Segregated, crafts, no cross crafting, shop and field employees usually at odds.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter to be open and honest than lose credibility. At will employer, salaried employees beware. No recourse when problems encountered. Keep friends close , enemies closer.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company to work for but if you family is the top priorities

    Upstream GOM (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGreat work life balance . Good benefits

    ConsPromotions are biased. Goal to promote more females to higher position and some of them flop after taking the promotion. Socializing is big and relationship often promotes people than merit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at the performance not the face while promoting people. Look at the accomplishments than the sweet talk while promoting and guidance.

    Tough luck charlie outfit. Several disasters, none the fault of 99% but impacting everyone.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosgood comp package. excellent 401k matching. Generally good bonuses. hours are good. challenging work at times. good health care package including funding health savings accounts.

    Consinteresting work hampered by endless trails of paperwork. senior management leadership lacks a goal in the IT&S group. 6 years ago, this was not the case. There was a general strategy and work was done against that strategy. The CIO's cycled out and the new ones simply worked at making the cover of CIO mag.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust the people you have hired to do the job you hired them to do. if you don't trust them, get some that you do trust.

    ProsThe work environment is fairly relaxed in most cases and the work life balance is decent. I enjoy working with most of the people in the company.

    Great learning opportunity, but time to move on.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Anchorage, AK

    ProsThe benefits offered by BP are great and there are opportunities to move to another location if you desire. There are plentiful training opportunities and it is relatively easy for someone to work their way up the ladder, which creates some of the problems within the company.

    ConsThe organization is in constant change and is suffering from poor management. Most leadership are interested in satisfying their managers and everything is all about making them look good. Management is not focused on actually improving the company, but are focused on checking boxes and looking good. Morale within the workforce is also very low right now.
