    Pros

    Great pay and benefits and people

    Cons

    Mid-level management is too busy trying to seem relative in order to save their jobs during all of the L48 reorganization process. They will even derail careers in order to achieve their own personal goals. Although, I've been gone for over a year the VPs of the L48 assets ARE irrelevant and too busy micromanaging instead of actually doing something worthwhile.

    Advice to Management

    Do not degrade new leaders based on hearsay or unfounded gossip. Jealousy will run rampant when someone has been there only a few years and then moved to a team lead position. When new leaders make mistakes give them direction and training to become the leaders BP wants and needs. Don't use it as an excuse to move them as far away from the wellhead (Operations to PSCM) as an excuse to get rid of people.

    The global BP is awesome!! The top management from the U.K. really practice the attitude they want to see throughout the company.

    Pros

    BP is an excellent company to work for, offering competitive salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Job security is highly sensible to oil price having constant layoffs than its competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Plan project financials at lower oil prices so you can retain talented employees. It is not clever to let talented and higly trained employees leave the company after having invested in them a lot of time and money in training.

    Pros

    The schedule is fantastic, 2 week on 2 week off with vacation too. The facility is nice, good food but very cold Arctic conditions. I wish I had been here several years ago.

    Cons

    Its the Arctic. Temps can fall to -45 degrees and the wind can blow for days. All the locations are built above ground so there are a lot of stair climbing.

    Advice to Management

    Share what decisions are being made quicker.

    I worked at BP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, gym at the campus, knowledgeable employees, work-life balance. They treat their employees with dignity and respect especially during restructuring.

    Cons

    Some employees can back-stabbed you especially when they feel that you know more than then and their lack of knowledge might be exposed. Some employees take credit for your work behind you. Their ranking system might need some improvement as it is not very fair as it sometimes has to do with your boss liking you even though you are not an exceptional employee, you might end up getting a very high ranking.

    Advice to Management

    Please look carefully into how team leads rank employees if the ranking reflects the actual work they did to merit it. Keep up the good work you are doing regarding treating employees with dignity and respect during lay offs.
