    Pros

    Great place to work. Competent management and motivated co-workers. Company really cared about employees well being and there was great opportunity for professional growth and development. The Carson plant had a lot of great people and strong culture left over from the ARCO days.

    Cons

    BP seemed to go a little overboard on all the feel good sometimes. Would have liked to see a little more focus on results and performance. And, of course, the spill in the Gulf was challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    BP will challenge you to grow professionally and will invest in you by extensive training for young professionals. BP executive leadership has improved significantly in its communication with the entire company about the direction of the company and how it will impact the various areas of the company.

    Cons

    The Land Department is a functional work environment. "When they hire you to do a job in Land, they expect you to do if it for a very long time." - Sr. Land Leadership There isn't much room for growth in Land and you will not be able to transfer to other jobs outside of Land.

    Advice to Management

    Develop the talent you hire to where they can perform more than one function. Create multiple opportunities for growth for your employees, otherwise you will continue turning over your staff.
