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

    Pros

    BP is like many other oil and energy firms. They pay well.

    Cons

    This is the worst place to work. The culture is vile. People don't work together and there's a lot of infighting. After two years of leading a large team (I was an experienced hire) I had enough and left.

    Advice to Management

    You need to treat external hires better and stop fighting at the top. It's what will ultimately kill the company.

    I have been working at BP full-time

    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.

    I worked at BP (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are really good. Chicago office competes with investment banks for talent and offers better work - life balance, location good for suburban commuters who take the train

    Cons

    low oil prices seem to be driving a lot of changes to organization where the strategy is very short sited and focused on cost reduction and no growth

    Advice to Management

    listen to your people, they know what the need to do and give them the space to do it, the top down directives are crushing the morale of the organization
