    I worked at BP

    Pros

    The oil business is quite a slow and relaxed culture. They make a lot of money and the work is not too crazy. People are professional and they take care of employees, although the pay could have been better (I worked in wholesale and retail fuels, the less sexy side of the business, i.e. "downstream").

    Cons

    The pay could have been better. Things took a long time to get done. It was not as exciting in the downstream business.

    Advice to Management

    Make safety a number one priority (you know what I'm saying here) and also don't greenwash, saying the company is beyond petroleum unless there is a true strategic direction for the company. The company was focusing on renewables for awhile before more recently toning it back.

    Great salary, benefits, resource groups,

    Cons

    Very little room for advanced opportunities. No functional career path in downstream organization.

    Advice to Management

    Work on creating a structure that support career development paths for those in the R&M part of the business
