Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at BP full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Competitive Salary
Prestigious company
Each department has its own set of cultures ( you may work in Shipping and love it!)

Cons

Unethical management
Second class culture towards contracted staff
Poor leadership
Work Life imbalance (can work 12 hours a day)
Lack of development opportunities
Extremely high turnover within HR

Advice to Management

I would advise that management/supervisory staff learn and action the BP Values and Behaviours before promoting it downstream. I have witnessed extreme scenarios of unethical behaviour.

Improve on management style. The current autocratic style does not work and there is an air of unhappiness and low morale within the department. Staff are too scared to speak up incase they are disciplined/dismissed in this poor economic climate. Painting over the cracks will not work. Helmut Schuster (Head of HR) when will you step in?

There is always a promise of "new development opportunities" which support staff never see.

I would not recommend working in HR, especially as a contractor. HR contractor roles are in abundance due to the high turnover rate!

    At my location I have been very supported and have been given opportunities to do the type of work I enjoy.

    There are challenges in how to get the work done. The company is working hard to improve so there are growing pains of that right now.

    Keep it simple. It doesn't have to be complicated to work.
