I worked at BP full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

multi national oil companies expose you to all types of business decisions. Decent training programs and people with deep expertise in their given field.

Cons

Lack of diversity in management.
To many mid level managers with no desire to help advance your career even thought they have deep knowledge that they could transfer to help you and the company succeed.
Work life balance is non existent as everyone is trying to protect the space they currently occupy.
No real clear career paths once your development program has run its course.

Advice to Management

Diversity is important and should be valued.
People development is key to future success.

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

    Pros

    Joined after the Deepwater Horizon accident. BP is making great strides to change the way things are done - kudos to all those contributing to the process. A lot of new people being brought in from other energy companies -- lots pof growth opportunities.

    Cons

    With growth changes across the company, process improvements are likely to take a few years to see the benefits. Leadership program needs to stress accountabilities at all levels. Talent retention will be challenging.


  2. "Great people, great benefits, lots of red tape"

    I have been working at BP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company, lots of training opportunities, great benefits and compensation, lots of opportunity in different areas so you can move around and find your niche, lots of responsibility

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy makes it difficult to get things done and very inefficient, so many initiatives and changes translates into lots of work in different areas

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to catch-up and focus on day to day operations, in the end it is the best way to ensure safe operations and allow people to be creative and come up with out of the box solutions that leads to cost savings or value generation
