    I have been working at BP (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good hours. Decent pay. Good benefits. If you're on a good team or find good mentors, you can have a very successful career here and there is no set "career path" so you can find which part of the business you like and steer yourself in that direction.

    Cons

    It's very team dependent. You can love one team, and dislike the next. Your manager really makes or breaks your experience. As with any large company it is very political and hard to get things done in a timely manner as it has to go through many different departments to get approval. A lot of the older people at the company are just completely content working 8-4 with a decent salary and good benefits and have zero sense of urgency to get anything done, so as a younger professional trying to make a name for yourself that can be extremely frustrating. No semblance of a "culture" whatsoever, even though you can tell management has tried very hard to get that after the oil spill.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people into management positions that excel at managing people and lead from the front. Too many people in management are so wrapped up in themselves that they fail to reach out to their teams & make their subordinates feel uncomfortable discussing their desires to grow their own careers. Isn't that the point of "managing"?

    Pros

    Great people, interesting work, good process & methodologies.

    Cons

    Top leadership team lacks diversity, does not live values & behaviors. Poor work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Every minute you ask employees to work overtime is equating to profit margin. People are burned out and BP is profiting billions. I voted with my feet.

    I have been working at BP full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have always worked on the Castrol team and despite BP being a large company it is had a small company feel.

    Cons

    Every 3 to 4 years the executive leadership team rotates. The new team in many cases has no clue about local markets.

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits excellent; treat all employees with immense respect

    Mega-conglomerate; therefore very slow moving and huge bureaucracy, not for the entrepreneurial at heart.

    Advice to Management

    Increase autonomy of operating divisions
