I worked at BP

Pros

BP is a good place to work with a strong commitment to fairness, diversity and ethical conduct.
BP offers plenty of opportunity for professional development.
Senior management are generally of a very high calibre.

Cons

BP is prone to constant reorganisation, management changes causing a loss of focus, continuity and delivery. This makes it an unstable work environment.
There is little respect for work life balance and no consideration for the impact on individuals when determining new tasks or initiatives.
The diversity agenda has a significant influence on HR-related decisions and will often have greater importance than merit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Constant reorganisation impedes delivery. Don't allow people to use reorganisations as a substitute for demonstrating delivery with the structure and people already in place. Keep senior leaders in the same role for 7-10 years so they get to know the real performers and are also made fully accountable for the results of their actions.

    Pros

    Global Company, Multicultural environment, opportunities for growth, opportunity for variety of roles in many countries, flexibility of movement across segments ie upstream, downstream and midstream. excellent work/life balance

    Cons

    In most cases, you are as good as your manager thinks ... , very hierachical, limited employee empowerment,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reduce the hierarchy if you can....implement 360 degrees feedback so your managers & team leaders can get a feel of what their direct reports feel/think, suggestions for improvements etc
