Great pay and benefits, but no career opportunities or training for non-engineers.

I have been working at BP full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Pay and benefits are top notch for the position that I am in. NOTHING gets done quickly at this company and it never seems anything has a "deadline" placed on it.

Cons

It is the most bureaucratic place I've ever worked. Everything has to be decided by committee as no one has the power to make a decision. No one wants to be responsible for a bad decision, and just keeps passing the buck hoping it will "go away".

    Great people, but the opportunities to manage and influence are limited being they operate in a functional world.

    I worked at BP full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great working environment, networking, kind and knowledgeable people. Big projects and access to learn about the upstream business. Must seek out opportunities on your own.

    Cons

    Functional management environment, managers do not have ability to make tough decisions and authority is often unclear. Mid level managers are generally weak, technically competent but lack true leadership and guidance to motivate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider looking to develop employees with true management and leadership potential. Focus less on high level of technical competency when looking to promote managers, build strong technical teams.
