Current Employee - N/A

I have been working at Marathon Oil full-time

Pros

good nice inclusive organized N/A

Cons

Nothing bad to say from my experience

Former Employee - Tax Analyst

I worked at BP full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Management was very supportive and helpful. I love my work/life balance while working at bp. The employees (whether in Texas or Illinois) were more like family.

Cons

We didn't have much time to focus on developing ourselves due to workload. And unfortunately some of the team leads didn't focus on our development either.

Advice to Management

A great manager to me is on that develops his/her team members so one day they would be able to take their place (if needed).
