    Pros

    Good compensations, easy place to work, and friendly people.

    Cons

    Hard to connect with the company; internal opportunities are ear-marked for favorite people, the application process is typically just to check the box.

    Advice to Management

    Suggest having people with more experience in the leadership positions rather than young people with limited experiences.

    Pros

    Nice offices, front line employees are great, flat organization, large resource base, relocating to Denver, Resource development is a high priority.

    Cons

    BPL48 is still acting like gas is <$1/MCFD and <$30/bbl, cutting people and safety processes. Result is poorer production and an unsafe work environment.

    You can replace people intelligence with algorithms.

    I worked at BP full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    BP represents a classic example of a 'top down' organization. If you are wanting to learn about complex organizations and how they operate, this is the place to work.

    Cons

    My colleagues and I used to discuss the analogy of the "Emperor's New Clothes" to BP. Management likes to make major organizational changes every 2-3 years. This includes reshuffling of personnel, now policies, practices and procedures as well as new business processes. The result is an organization that is always in flux and one where senior level leadership prescribes the changes based on studies/consultants without input from the organization...especially operations.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that stability and 'steady state' require periods where employees and the organization can assimilate and establish processes to improve on the change. Good leaders periodically check to ensure that the troops are behind them!

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

    Pros

    BP is a good company. The compensation is good and the benefits are very good. The people are good and the facilities are acceptable.

    Cons

    The market/industry is very difficult right now. Raises have been minimal for several years. They have reduced/eliminated benefits. Opportunities for advancement are virtually non-existent. Many very good employees are leaving the company and morale is very low.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to "walk the talk" regarding people being the most important asset: deliver reasonable annual increases, provide training and opportunities for advancement, and the returns on that investment will be tremendous.
