    Pros

    Been working at BP for a little under a year now, and so far it's be a great experience. The people are great, and there appears to be a lot of opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    I really haven't had any negative experiences personally while working here, but I've heard from my colleagues who've been at BP for a long time that things used to be even better before the oil prices tanked.

    Advice to Management

    Really can't think of anything, except maybe speed up the process for hiring new people. It seems the hiring process can take quite a while, but I imagine any large company the HR process will be fairly slow.

    Pros

    Decent benefits and there are some great people that work there.

    Organization is constantly restructuring; you get the feel that everyone is our for themselves. You really have to take personal development into your own hands because a lot of managers are just looking out for their next position.

    Pros

    Well, paid. 9/80 for those that prefer to work that. Stable company.

    Cons

    Little management training. The union runs the company too much. So much is about coddling to the unreasonable demands of the unions to foster relationships. Even if it makes no sense. The union is about the union, not the people or the company they should be working for to represent.

    Advice to Management

    Very little true control over expenses. Visibility of subordinate spending is poor and authorization is after the fact, at best. Leadership is lacking and management has no clue how to build and motivate high-performance teams. Performance was regular motivated by threats. My management totally undermined me with my people and the union.
