I worked at BP

Pros

excellent salary and benefits
some truly knowledgable experts to work with
state of art technology

Cons

only 5 options (time frame based) on 401K direction
Utter and appalling disrespect by management towards employees has led to discouragement and low morale.
Management is by quarter; this means necessary long-term expenditures (read maintenance, inspection, etc.) may be deferred.
Focus on personal safety with ignorance about process safety
Wonderful, people-oriented American managers have been replaced with uncaring Brits
Do not seek employment here if you are female or a minority - you will not receive respect or opportunities
Say no and you will be asked to leave; it is viewed as disrespecting authority; even politically correct questioning may lead to consequences

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat the employees as the assets they are.
Seek to understand process safety and the human elements thereof. Unbridled arrogance and failure to understand consequences leads to platforms sinking. So does deferred maintenance and inspections.
What's wrong with women and minorities? Get in this century! Methinks the man doth protest too much! Stop sponsoring diversity conferences in the community until you understand the subject.
Not everyone who disagrees with you is your enemy; they may be trying to CYA. For you English, ask an American what that means.

    I have been working at BP

    Pros

    The benefits are great. The salaries are competitive. The company is open and accepting of diverse individuals. I also like the flexible schedule, including 9/80.

    Cons

    The company's reputation is an obstacle to overcome. I don't think the advancement opportunities are very good for minority candidates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The advice I would give would be to look beyond cultural biases and personal affinities to find the person who is best for a job.

    Current Employee - Procurement Intern in Houston, TX

    I have been working at BP

    Pros

    Relaxed, casual work atmosphere
    Friendly people, always willing to help
    A lot of training available -- classes, workshops, etc.

    Cons

    In terms of procurement, very unorganized. Difficult to find data. Can be attributed to the fact that BP is such a large global corporation.
    No company mandates, makes it hard to implement procurement policies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to mandate and enforce procurement policies so that the various business units follow them, or else it is difficult for procurement to do its job.
