    Good company overall, too many "Yes Men"

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

    Pros

    They pay good, decent benefits (school reimbursement, 401k match, pension, medical, etc). Many opportunities (they are the 4th largest company in the world, assets all over, all types of jobs). Solid job market (constantly hiring most positions, many contract opportunities).

    Cons

    "Yes Men" seem to get management positions about 3/4 of the time, with or without proper qualifications; so all the issues that come with that... Too many processes and procedures that become the focus vs. the actual work. Too much of a "we're all equal" attitude, so the guy doing nothing gets the same recognition as the guy doing all the work (or more sometimes..). They seem to get stuck on pedigree vs. qualifications, so many unqualified people in upper positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize individual's, good and bad. Do the right thing vs. politically correct.

    I worked at BP as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good salary.... good working conditions...lots of work... Most people you work with are pleasant.

    Cons

    Some of the people you were forced to work with run hot and cold... or would be characterized as 2 faced. Not a lot of new positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the mid level managers do not work to obtain the best performance out of their staff. But there have been recent mgmt changes to correct that--
