    Business unit structure can inhibit cross business opportunities as the incentive to collaborate is not always as strong as ithe incentive to progress the business unit's own agenda.

    Pros

    BP has great benefits for individuals and family, they have competitive pay in most markets, they are a global company which allows for lots of opportunities
