Disapproves of CEO

Pros

A huge company with global prescence, a nice working enviroment where you can quickly find your comfort zone and work your way around the company - doing lots of meaningless jobs with fancy job titles. Still a few expat roles out there, where the money and benefits are excellent.

Cons

Small fish in a big pond - very uncommercial management team, constant change, underperforming, low pay, rapidly reducing total reward package (just got rid of c-days etc) At the moment they are on a real cost-cutting process, which has dramtically reduced the amount of international travel opportuninties. Senior management have been around to long and lost touch with the quickly changing oil&gas environment

Advice to Management

Bring in some external senior management - who can make real decision with business acumen backing

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    What you get from being underpaid is made up for in the learning opportunities for me, if you're looking for a good grounding in the oil industry, BP should be one of the better places to start a career.If you're looking for someplace to retire comfortably for work-life balance, BP is also good.

    Cons

    Low pay, lots of internal politics and management are all talk and no action, and they do not retain talent. To them, keeping their own ricebowl is priority, all talk and no action. They love to have "conversations" but do not like to do actual work

    Advice to Management

    Do not be so short-sighted. You're trying to fight with other companies for good people, just because you're a behemoth doesn't mean you have to act like one.
