    I worked at BP full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent Perks if you work at a main campus. The pay was better than most of its competitors and better than a comparable job in another industry.

    Cons

    If you are anything but an engineer there is very little growth available in the company. You will be married to the job or business unit you were hired into. Unfortunately the culture became very toxic during the 2015 downturn and layoffs did not consider contributions or performance ratings.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at BP full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Competitive remuneration relative to NOCs.

    Cons

    The most toxic work environment. Work and results oriented personnel will never survive. Only, those with shallow knowlege and below-average Technical skills and well supported for seniors mgt may move forward, if they master evading responsibility and smoithly pass it over to others. Simply, you need to be a good political actor. It is an absoloutely non-learning organization and invaluable to those who look for career development. The only learing you may gain is how to play an unethical game.

    Cons

    It is BIG Multinational Corporation, so you can be a bit of a number to leadership! When working in the US, realize that most important decisions are made in the UK (London) at Global HQ. They will lay off a US employee and keep the UK employee in the same job, if needed, regardless of need or performance. They will hire outside of BP, instead of promote from within, it's easier.
