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

    Pros

    Great folks and teammates. Flexible hours and culture that allows for schedule flexibility. Challenging work and a lot to learn from projects and people. You can make personal friends easily; not just have colleagues.

    Cons

    Networking and high visibility presence is a requirement for advancement. Networking, speaking at meetings, and taking projects outside your job/area is a must for promotion and "good grades". Hard work and quality products are valued as mediocre delivery.

    Advice to Management

    Value hard work that enables silent and smooth running. Speaking out for the sake of participation is not a value, but "image management".

    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!
