    Pros

    BP is a well-known company and it is a good name on CV. If you want to work in the oil industry, it might not be a bad place to start. However, unless you are a native-born English, chances for promotion are minimal. Hence, careerwise, it is not an employer of choice.

    Cons

    the turnover was high and it was a perfect reflection of the job satisfaction that employees had there - just a little over 0. Pay was low, promotion was impossible, the environment was very political. there was very little empowerment on the side of management. the only advantage would be the central location of the office in Moscow.

    Advice to Management

    Be less personal and more professional in your approach to people working for you

    Pros

    Great overseas opportunities; work/life balance is awesome, very flexible, there is more interest in whether you get your job done but not necessarily where you do it; professionally I have had great opportunity for growth in my discipline.

    Cons

    In the past HR has seemingly viewed the employee as the enemy rather than someone to support. This seems to be changing with the new organization so we are hopeful. Bad external press and low base pay caused low employee morale in the past. Recent moves to rectify base pay off cycle are very encouraging now. Company is very performance-based so beware if you don't deliver! Although location is quite flexible (e.g. if you need to stay home for any reason), it is expected you will do your job so be prepared for some weekend and night work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the recognition (monetary and verbal) of your staff to continue gaining back trust and boosting morale.
