Don't get on this sinking ship.....

Lead Accountant - Sunbury CoE (Current Employee)
Sunbury, England (UK)

I have been working at BP

ProsA 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.

ConsSmall 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 Senior ManagementBring in some external senior management - who can make real decision with business acumen backing

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
