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 have been working at BP as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great work culture, competitive salaries, the company has a desire to advance itself and keep up with the times. The way they owned up to the oil spill was very commendable. Also, you may have a 9-80 schedule with every other Friday off.

    Cons

    Disorganization between departments, too many meetings, and a constant rearrangement of the employees which doesn't seem to do much good to business prosperity.
