    I have been working at BP full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Competitive Salary
    Prestigious company
    Each department has its own set of cultures ( you may work in Shipping and love it!)

    Cons

    Unethical management
    Second class culture towards contracted staff
    Poor leadership
    Work Life imbalance (can work 12 hours a day)
    Lack of development opportunities
    Extremely high turnover within HR

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise that management/supervisory staff learn and action the BP Values and Behaviours before promoting it downstream. I have witnessed extreme scenarios of unethical behaviour.

    Improve on management style. The current autocratic style does not work and there is an air of unhappiness and low morale within the department. Staff are too scared to speak up incase they are disciplined/dismissed in this poor economic climate. Painting over the cracks will not work. Helmut Schuster (Head of HR) when will you step in?

    There is always a promise of "new development opportunities" which support staff never see.

    I would not recommend working in HR, especially as a contractor. HR contractor roles are in abundance due to the high turnover rate!
