    I have been working at BP full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great company that wants to train you to be a better employee. Good benefits and great pay, I make more than my peers at Exxon and Chevron! My current boss is great and isn't to worried about the time clock as long as you get all your work done. My last boss was a huge dick that didn't portray BP's image at all... My boss before him was great though so it can be hit or miss.

    Cons

    Sometimes you get stuck working for a raging lunatic and there isn't much you can do about it. Lots of bureaucracy and lots of "process" even if it doesn't make any sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The functional discipline model is proving to be a disaster to efficiency! Safety and performance is one conversation stop confusing people with two different conversations. Try to let the left hand know what the right and is doing... We have become so big that we are blowing away opportunities and understanding with people just lost or caught up in the bureaucracy.

    I have been working at BP

    Pros

    Benefits, Health, Retirement, pay is very good. Very satisfied as of now and when my retirement kicks in 767,000 in retirement

    Cons

    It seems like oil will be scarce in the next 25 years so job outlook may not be well. Hopefully no more oil spills.
