    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.

    Pros

    Compensation, health insurance, relocation benefits.

    Culture
    They called themselves “diplomats” but most employees call them “unethical politicians”.

    Advice to Management

    Do not het caught up in the politics and make decisions based on what is right for both the company and the employees. Remember one of BPs values is COURAGE.

    I worked at BP (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was a contractor in the GCRO but was listened to and valued like an employee. I was eligible for companywide awards (and won one), I went to training like an employee, etc.

    Cons

    When the price of oil declines, some people lose their jobs. That's the way it is in every corner of the exploration & production business.

    Pros

    Wonderfully nice boss that cares a lot about his/her employees. Gives great experience in customer service to enhance problem solving skills.

    Cons

    Consistencies lack in regards to reliability to have some products deliver which the store owners lack. There needs to be constant reminding for several things and it seems that there are a lot of penny-pinchers that run stores.
