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

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits, compressed working week, reasonably relaxed working environment with good camaraderie between colleagues.

    Cons

    Morale is currently very low. Most people appear to be staying only because the pay is so good and opportunities in the oil industry scarce at the moment. Opportunities for advancement very scarce and promotions process appears to be entirely arbitrary - no clarity or guidance from management on career progression. Very old fashioned company - currently focused on modernizing but held back by an aging, mostly British management.

    Advice to Management

    Need to start rewarding the high performers by promoting them and offering career advancement opportunities.
