    Pros

    Good salary and benefits with some opportunity to advance pending where the company is in the life cycle of oil commodity price.

    Cons

    Clickish with favoritism, pets, weak support for team members and narcissistic leadership styles that are rewarded. Team members typically are not given due credit rather a leader steels it.

    Advice to Management

    Look around, who is really doing the work versus hob knobbing and brown nosing to get the bonus or the next promo...before an employee is thrown under the bus, talk that person don't sneak around indirectly trying to sniff out answers through rumor and hear say.

    I worked at BP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very good people. Great management training. HR Policies and procedures are best practice. Diverse range of opportunities. High ethical stance. Bad behaviour isn't tolerated

    Cons

    Constant retrenchments and reorganisations in recent years', led to fewer opportunities and confused culture. Knowledge management isn't a great skill. Lots of people new to their jobs. People with outside experience not always as valued as "home grown".

    Advice to Management

    Latest reorganisations need to be bedded down. Some stability needed.

    Pros

    Big BP company is a great place to work. Developments and benefits are competitive. Opportunity for growth is great. The people are great to work with and highly technical.

    Cons

    No cons for the big BP. However for BP L48 (spin off version of BP) is not very good. They brought the mafia from Sandridge with guys that had only a few years of experience taking on management positions that have no idea what they are doing with no technical background. Their only justify their decisions based on what the boss like. This is no difference from hiring a high schooler to run the place.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't run the company to the ground like you did with Sandridge.
