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

Pros

Good compensation and benefits. Very good worklife balance.

Cons

Need to be careful as practices can run counter to company policies. A lot of opportunities since turnover is high, though employee's indication to rotate could be met by managerial retaliation. Continue to attract people as it is in a good industry, but seldom able to keep the good recruits or attract from within the same industry.

    I worked at BP

    Pros

    -Tons of work opportunities, especially early in your career. Can take some time as a young engineer to find where you fit best and land there.
    -Culture is great, and the people are as well.
    -9/80 schedule is great (every other Friday off, working 9 hours per day every other day). Essentially its ~20 days of vacation each year in addition to the vacation package you already have.

    Cons

    -Typical big company cons: slow turnaround for decisions, bureaucracy, etc.
    -Sometimes the company tends to ride the oil industry roller-coaster more than most. When things are good, they're great, but when something happens (ex. Gulf Spill), things may get prohibitively expensive, hard to do, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dudley and Co do a good job. Stick with the vision for the company, and continue to value people.
