Former Employee - Manager in Houston, TX
Former Employee - Manager in Houston, TX

I worked at BP full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Nice buildings, campus is Eco-friendly, very convenient work locale, free parking, events for family, good pay and bonuses.

Cons

VERY political company, minimal respect for experienced employees joining the company, often times promotions or Senior Level Leader jobs (Level F and above) are only given to people who "know" the management team or who are telling the management team what they want to hear. Very British-centric for adopting ideas and valuing opinions. Americans on global teams are treated with an inferior positioning to their British colleagues. If you can accept this environment then BP is a good fit. Company is downsizing considerably due to the legal problems of the Macondo spill. Basically going to a skeleton work model for the US locations. In financial hardships right now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put more focus on Leadership training around inclusivity. The company only gives this "lip service" but does not demonstrate equality to American's in SLL roles versus their British colleagues.

    Pros

    This is a very large company with good pay and benefits. Thier global focus opens some opportunities to travel and work overseas.

    Cons

    They can't make up thier mind about who they are, constantly reshaping, redefining, and reorganizing. Most of the countries they are in are somewhat unstable. They tend to send too much time making decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and stick to it. Be more nimble.

    I worked at BP full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits if you can hang on. Company is shrinking & doing pocketed layoffs. Morale is horrible.

    Cons

    Middle folks stuck, so are women. No where to go up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire all of upper mgmt & start over
