No opinion of CEO

Pros

The salary is good. The advance training your recieve is excellent. The insurance is good as is the medical care

Cons

no time off to live a personal life, days off often cancelled , vacation non-existant, work days 18 hours, no personal communication allowed while on ship. your not allowed personal computer communication or phone calls while on the ship. The days working and days off schedual is ignored. I haven't been off the payroll ship in the gulf except for training, doctors appoinments and a few other short assignments in 18 plus months.

Advice to Management

All members from top management on the ship need to have there days off manditory and respected as time off. Away from work and communication from work. The management out on ships should be made to leave work and go ashore. As it was written in the work contract. The Payroll direct diposits, inventory controll, damage payouts,all done by computer and satellite link should be done at a on-shore office not on the ship. this would save money and time

    Pros

    BP is a great place to start a career. They will train you, expose you to many different aspects/places in the E&P world, and provide you with the tools to succeed in your job. BP has so many different producing areas in their portfolio that you gain a wide range of skills over a very short time frame.

    Cons

    Very large company so things move very slowly. It takes a long time to accomplish anything and that can be frustrating at times. If you do work at BP make sure you are proactive in everything you do, from your technical training to your work... otherwise you can become a number and that does you no good.
