    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at BP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    After all this time, I can’t think of any.

    Cons

    Management doesn’t have a clear vision. L48 headquarters was moved to Denver, even though most of the onshore assets are in Texas. There is a Denver vs. Houston mentality which originated from the current onshore CEO. L48 has been laying off high performers in Houston and the field, which has caused safety issues, but are hiring positions that are laughable at best like Culture Representatives and Executive Concierge in Denver. The Denver office is spending money as if L48 is an oil driven company, but it’s not. L48 is a gas driven company.

    Advice to Management

    The onshore HQ should have stayed in Houston. Management has had several complaints laid out against them about inappropriateness, ageism, racism, misogyny, favoritism, cronyism and nepotism yet nothing was done to resolve issues with employees and management. You cannot replace the people’s intelligence with algorithms and you cannot expect everyone to learn how to code/learn new programs without training.

    Pros

    Good location from my house

    Cons

    Stressful environment, constantly changing with no perceived direction

    Advice to Management

    Employees need motivation - tough environment for so long has taken the fun out of IT&S

    Pros

    One team approach; engineers are encouraged to help and learn from each other; friendly environment with very talented people; 9/80 schedule; great benefits; even during lay-offs the company was very generous

    Cons

    I do have any complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to be more in tune with who really gets the job done. There are some people with far less technical capabilities that gets ahead due to the old fashion "sucking-up to your boss"
