Former Employee - Project Manager in Chicago, IL
Former Employee - Project Manager in Chicago, IL

I worked at BP as a contractor (more than 3 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

No opinion of CEO

    Dissappointing, they are heavily contractor based and prefer to extend contracts than to hire people.
