Pros

- Work life balance - Pay for contractors - Able to fund projects without regard to benefit, kept me busy. - Training program is very good.

Cons

- Process heavy even when it made no sense at all - Restructuring for the sake of change, I had 4 bosses in 2 years. - Contractors are told nothing about the company future plans. - Senior IT Management was not very effective. I never saw a manager challenge another manager from the business. - Project vetting process is long, weird, and unproductive

Advice to Management

Money was never an object to funding a project. They seem to have a never ending supply of funds. This was the problem actually. A pure cost/benefit should be applied without regard to business pet projects. In a another company these pet project would have been shelved.

    Pros

    Steady paycheck that is it.

    Cons

    The management is full of liars. The company talks safety but, doesn't follow its own polices. The pay for the health risks, safety risks and the lies is not sufficient!

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say. Stop laying!!

    Pros

    Individually people are valued by their co-workers and managers at this company. Poor performers do exist but not without notice and full out efforts to improve performance. Those who perform well are give opportunities to enhance their careers.

    Cons

    There is a lot of negative press about BP and sometimes it's hard to escape.
