    I worked at BP (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    One of the best companies that I have ever worked for. They beleive in their core values, putting safety and family first., s well as giving back to the community. There is always an abundance of resources to get any job completed successfully, and always a team environment to work in, as well as a good atmosphere. Nine-Eighty work schedule.

    Cons

    When some of the past incidents took place, more Btitts starting being placed in management roles and it really started changing the company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make your employees so scared to sign off on paperwork , especially change management, MOC's or anything involving signatures just because past experiences didn't go so well.

    I worked at BP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Total compensation of salary and bonus very good vs industry.

    Cons

    From middle management up through senior executives it is a popularity game in order to move your career forward. Sucking up is worth more than delivering value in your role. Culture is at all time low as yearly layoffs have been in place for the last three years. The money is not worth the drama.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage people, not take care of friends.
