    I worked at BP full-time

    Pros

    Good system, lots of training, fantastic career path.

    Cons

    Career opportunity is determined by one individual.

    Advice to Management

    Need to rely on overall review of the employee from various managers, not just one person.

    Pros

    As a cashier at this BP convenience store for nearly 7 years, it was a pleasure to meet so many people in a small town with a very welcoming community. The job was enjoyable and a great way to start my working career in high school. Started at minimum wage and, within 3 years, I reached the hourly rate cap for cashiers. Hours are incredibly flexible and the manager really wants you to be successful, considering this is the first job for some high school students in the area.

    Cons

    Although the job isn't physically exhausting, it can be mentally taxing. As with most customer service jobs, some customers can get frustrated easily and may not have patience for a new employee or during a "rush" hour. The register technology at this location is almost 20 years old and, admittedly, has been falling apart over the last year. This problem has caused long closures and many headaches for the management and other employees. Hopefully, the company will soon replace the registers with a more up-to-date system.

    I worked at BP full-time

    Pros

    GREAT people to work with and decent pay and benefits

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, SLOW and inefficent; upper management is informed by power hungry self serving incompetent managers who do not know how to lead or motivate people

    Advice to Management

    pay more attention to the people who do the work; Ignore or at least question the motives of those who seek only self promotion and advancement while destroying morale

    Pros

    Great people to work with and the benefits were pretty good. Hard work is noticed by the right people though the process for advancement is sometimes slow.

    Cons

    Sometimes progress is slow for workhorse departments.

    I worked at BP full-time

    Pros

    Market facing staff (traders, schedulers, market analysts, and commercial development) all make good money and are in demand throughout the industry with skills and knowledge that every other trading competitor desires. Great location downtown with great office and casual dress. Really good benefits (7% 401k matching) and a PENSION!

    Cons

    British employees from main office regularly come over and take the most desirable jobs. Lack of senior american management (don't let the Dudley hire fool ya). Can get pigeon holed into a narrow career focus and therefore can have narrow work experience. Being a large company, it also suffers from the usual bureacracy.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more Americans to bolster moral and lower turnover.

    I have been working at BP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are no pros to this company. They destroy the environment, operate as if it's the 1950's, and are unethical in all they do.

    Cons

    I am ashamed to work for this company. In 2015, leadership is all white males (having 1 female HR VP does not mean you are a diverse company), you are judged by how many hours you sit in your chair not your performance, technology and efficiency is never considered, the bureaucracy prevents anyone from getting anything done, contractors make decisions not BP staff. It's the worst company I have ever worked for in my career.

    Advice to Management

    Retire or resign and replace with fresh minds.

    Pros

    Good and nice colleagues in the company. Most people are willing to help each other, though there are exceptions.

    Cons

    Company outlook is clouded after oil spill. Low oil price is another blow to the company. Company sold a lot of assets and there are limited things to do. In some areas very limited project to work on or even no new project coming in. That is why a lot of good people chose to leave --- the future is very uncertain for the company.

    Advice to Management

    safety is really a big thing. Look at how many big accidents the company suffered from in the past 10- 20 years. Need to improve on safety.
