    I have been working at BP

    Pros

    Good retirement benefits of about 15% pension + 401K match. Usually good life/work balance, you can take weekends off unless there is a pressing project deadline. Free gym onsite. Not as hectic as a bank. Politics are much easier to deal with than a bank. Management is flexible about outside responsibilities, appointments, etc.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than a bank. Expectations are high for job performance, and oftentimes unreasonable. Recognition for hard work is not really present. Management oftentimes gives in to front office demands without realistically assessing what it takes to meet those demands - in terms of man hours required to do the job correctly. Understaffed - employees are stretched far too thin. Market risk in Houston in the "model" risk group for BP, which means the workload and project demands are far higher than any other location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should reflect on employee contributions and meaningfully recognize those who make the group successful. There is not a sense of long term commitment of management for employees and their growth within the company. More team building would go a long way.

    Continued reviews; with rewards and penalties, could help improve the quality of work preformed.
