    No Advancement, No Benefits, No Raises for 4yrs need new job.

    Gas Station Attendant (Current Employee) Bronx, NY

    ProsI like the fact that you are in control of business while your working there is no one over your shoulders but your responsible for everything.

    ConsPeople not coming in on time always late when it's my time to be releaved. Again no insurance or benefits for 40 hrs worker I thought you were to get benefits for full time workers

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your employees some of them really care for jobs and we are treated like we don't exist.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Amazing Opportunity

    Reservoir Engineer (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsInterned twice at BP, went full time. Now working elsewhere. Got fired for something I deserved to be fired for.

    If you get an offer at BP, take it. Period. The work environment is so amazing that it sounds too good to be true to your friends. Big projects, big money, big opportunities. Just incredible. I never met a single jerk at BP. People were willing to put down their work and help you so often. Great gym, great campus, just awesome.

    ConsThe only con is that the HR department drags their legs on everything. They make promises they won't keep, but that's honestly pretty common at Fortune 500s. DO NOT LET THESE CLOWNS KEEP YOU AWAY FROM THIS AMAZING COMPANY!

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work

    Great company that rewards you for good performance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSurrounded by good people, supportive of work-life balance, competitive compensation and benefits package

    ConsStill working towards being "OneTeam". There's opportunities to consolidate and leverage across the various business units, but everyone is too busy doing their own thing, without a desire to collaborate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communications, all the way down to the front line, particularly for communications pertaining to the state of the business.

    Better then average place to work

    Project Development Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGood group of people, good pay and benefits. There is a lot of flexibility with schedule and if you want to travel the opportunity is always there.

    ConsThere can be a lot of politics involved, and promotions are sometimes solely based on politics and who you are friends with. The system / company regulations can sometimes be.....frustrating.
