    Former Employee - Operations Specialist in Farmington, NM

    I worked at BP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely NONE! They are their own worst enemy! Too much micromanaging and less productivity!

    Cons

    Cloud of fear
    Horrible Leadership
    Constant Passing the Buck
    Never takes responsibilty for anything...would rather point the finger at the contractors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the constant complaints on open talk to whom is making the calls...the constant tattlers...Practice what you preach!
    Watch how company electronic (laptops, cellphones) are used for personal use...employees would be more productive if they werent surfing the web for hunting gear or watching March Madness!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
