    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.

    Pros

    Good work life balance and fair compensation structure. Emphasis on internal development and training.

    Cons

    Organization bureaucracies and strong favoritism by line-managers, and too many dotted line reporting.

    Advice to Management

    Have people report to local managers and not someone in another state or country...you leave too many unnoticed problems if supervisory are not there to see and only base on spotty feedback from other manager locally without solid line accountability. That opens up for too many tricks and political games and favoritism rather than reward by merit and work.

    Pros

    Great benefits, salary and promotions

    Cons

    Difficult to keep up with constant company reorg. Company does not give processes and procedures time to be in place and work before making major changes in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with a plan long enough to see if it will work. Make your Project Managers adhere to the new processes and procedures you put in place.

    Pros

    the benefits are great, they still offer a pension. The core values are a nice environment to work in and the salary tends to be at the top of the scale.

    Cons

    Favoritism is far too common, spend way too much time on things that don't apply to building a business and stock price is still under pressure

    Advice to Management

    Break up the good old boys club, when reports come in against senior management, don't sweep it under the carpet and get rid of the dead weight.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good money. Lots of growth!!

    Cons

    Micro managers and to many cuts within the IT department. Their is a lot of distinction between the employees and contractors. Many contractors are not welcomed fully and not allowed to sit with the employees. They do not welcome long term contractors to team get-together. They are not contractor friendly.

    Advice to Management

    Retain knowledgeable and experienced consultants. Your talent hunt should start with efficient consultant first then outside recruiting.
