Pros

The salary is good. The advance training your recieve is excellent. The insurance is good as is the medical care

Cons

no time off to live a personal life, days off often cancelled , vacation non-existant, work days 18 hours, no personal communication allowed while on ship. your not allowed personal computer communication or phone calls while on the ship. The days working and days off schedual is ignored. I haven't been off the payroll ship in the gulf except for training, doctors appoinments and a few other short assignments in 18 plus months.

Advice to Management

All members from top management on the ship need to have there days off manditory and respected as time off. Away from work and communication from work. The management out on ships should be made to leave work and go ashore. As it was written in the work contract. The Payroll direct diposits, inventory controll, damage payouts,all done by computer and satellite link should be done at a on-shore office not on the ship. this would save money and time

    BP is a great place to be in, but Supply Chain isn't at par with its peers

    Pros

    Pay is good
    Benefits are good
    Alternate work schedule is great
    Many good people to work with

    Cons

    Incompetent leadership within supply chain
    Promotion is based on "who you know NOT what you know"
    Supply Chain is one grade above premitive
    Poor planning and poor execution
    It is worse than congress when it comes to working together and executing plans
    Hiring people, warm boddies, just to fill positions
    Unfair pay practiices even within people within the same grade level

    Advice to Management

    You have saturated the company with "warm bodies" in response to the gulf incident. It would be wise to focus on the good people who run everyday's work and incentivize them instead of paying hi-dollar salaries for newbies who know nothing about the business. HR needs more legs to stand on as they are pretty much considered administrative jobs. Empower your managers to make decisions as they know more than many of the directors who are nothing but figureheads.

    Pros

    The PSCM function at BP is growing rapidly, the on the job opportunities and learning were abundant. They treat the interns to paid housing, very competitive pay, and relocation reimbursement. BP also made strong efforts to extend business travel opportunities to interns for extended and enhanced job learning.

    Cons

    Some see the new-hire Challenger program having a con in its 2, 1.5 year rotations that demand you spend 1 rotation at a field location that generally speaking is not a desirable place to spend 18 months of your younger years.
