    I worked at BP as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    As an intern I was given projects that had real business impact and pushed my skills. All of my co-workers were extremely friendly, helpful, and willing to lend a hand in any way they could. As an intern you get amazing benefits (including 401K match, healthcare, 9/80 schedule, full repo and housing etc) and great training (lunch & learns, weekly executive phone calls, & relevant functional training for project).

    Cons

    Communication between corporate and regional areas could be improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent and enthusiastic about BP's employee value proposition to potential employees. Many interns didn't realize the how great their benefit packages were.

    I have been working at BP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are copious amounts of training to help you achieve your profesional goals and the managers are supportive in allowing you time to train, even outside of your current responsibilities.

    Cons

    The managers do not have much ability to adjust compensation after the initial hire. All increases are "market based" & are basicly cost of living.

    I have been working at BP as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    BP let's you grow as an employee. If hired on as an employee you can change job roles every 2 years. They do not micro manage you when you work. They trust their employees to do their work.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of training that goes on at BP so if you get a job with BP you better be a go-getter and comfortable learning things on your own. People are nice and willing to help, but it can be tough if you are not really self-motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As I am a contractor I do not know that I would have much advice to give here.

    Pros

    Making up things as you go keeps the day interesting

    Cons

    Lack of accountability, chaotic structure, incompetence

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold people accountable. This halfway between asset model and functional model is to much to bear for some, while others sit back. Give engineers something to aspire to.
