I worked at BP as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Energy is a great industry to work in and BP's a great company to work for. They pay well, have a nice benefits package. There's lots of room to move horizontally across the company and things in the industry are constantly changing. So people rarely find themselves bored with their job.

Cons

BP is known for job cuts due to restructuring and it's definitely not a place where you can accelerate quickly through the company. People tend to be satisfied with staying their long-term, which is good because you'll certainly need to be there a while to move into an manager/executive position. However the slow progression model is necessary because it takes a lot of knowledge and experience to be an executive in such a complex business.

    I worked at BP as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Big company, good employee benefits, good lunches! Lots of people are obviously very happy working there for long periods

    Cons

    I wan't matched up to work that interested me and hence found it pretty uninteresting. Feedback on performance was quite standard and not useful. Not much flexibility to move between roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to give intern students more choice on what work they get to do.
