I worked at BP full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Great pay benefits nice cafeteria and gym

Cons

If they say speak up; don't. You'll get retaliated

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please screen promotion. Some team leads have no people skills but like then power to control people. You'll lose your investment due to these unqualified staff.

    I have been working at BP full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits. Good mentor programs. Many outlets for work-life balance (e.g. Asian network, LGBT, pickup soccer, good gym facilities). Onsite daycare is a plus. 9/80 work schedule is fantastic. Fairly flexible work hours as long as you get the job done and meet expectations.

    Cons

    Sometimes the process of large corporations can bog down efficiency, but there is a reason the process is in place, especially post-Macondo. The "safety moments" can be a excessive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The 10-yr "Excellence Program" is a bit unreasonable.

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

    Pros

    Beginning to offer flexible work arrangement schedules to be more competitive with other companies. The pay is good, they offer a pension and the 401K match is 7%, which is better than most.

    Cons

    With a company of this size, it can be very easy to plateau as upward mobility is difficult given the relatively flat organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management says they embrace diversity in all areas including diversity of thought, however most of the senior management is the exact same and has to prove to be the same in thinking and behanvior to be advanced beyond middle management in their career. My advice don't just talk the talk, diversity is the way of the future, truly embrace it without fear of losing your position.
