    I have been working at BP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Everyone treats each other with respect.
    -Very flexible in terms of home life.
    -Back in growth means more opportunities for advancement.
    -Very good about promoting from within.

    Cons

    -Some positions can still be hard to reach unless you know someone, regardless of merit.
    -We’ve been stuck in a shrinking headcount environment for so long that people tend to switch jobs every 2 years. This leads to a lot of “jack of all trade and masters of none” types. Also leads to a constant chaotic environment in terms of getting things done.
    -Still a stigma between the GBS and the imbedded business.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of good things are happening on the London side of things, but it can feel like the brand presence in the US has been abandoned and left to fend for itself sometimes.
    The Brand is too valuable to be ran by jobbership programs. They don’t help the brand image, company operations do, bring them back.
