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 Management

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

    little accountability, poor job of talent management so lots of dead weight being carried (great if you want to coast)

    Cons

    salary and benefits not competitive with other majors, management's perception of how things appear is much more important than reality, highly political culture--it's not what you know or how well you do your job that counts--it's who you know

    Advice to Management

    require all managers to complete annual 360 or upward feedback reviews and base their reward/merit raises on their team's feedback
