Unfortunate experience with a company that I wanted to retire with; a big mistake that would have been.

I worked at BP

Pros

As a consultant, it was a very easy and enjoyable position. I was initially an IBM/pWc Consultant, later BP insourced all of the consultants in their job capacities + 50% more duties.

Cons

The workload was extremely heavy and BP management simply did not listen and infact, they rebutted that it was not too much, more over we where labeled inefficient.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Without employees you don't have staff to operate the business, LISTEN TO EMPLOYEES, they are simply the thermometer of how the business is doing now and in the future.

    I have been working at BP

    Pros

    Flex Fridays. Fair treatment. Try to do good. Environmental practices are great.

    Cons

    A perception that BP undervalues technical employees. Seen as promoting folks that toe the company line, but aren't good with technical knowledge. Processes are so many that can't seem to make value driven decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More leeway for technical people to make decisions. Value the contributions and don't drive away good engineers by underpaying and not motivating.
