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

    Pros

    I enjoy the flexible schedule that BP offers their employees. The leadership team is very humble and respectful from the ones I have had contact with. I don't know of other team leaders or managers in other functions. The salary is also competitive but not the best in the industry.

    Cons

    They have been in the news for too long and there is so much uncertainty about the future of the company after the 2010 oil spill.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to clear the mess created by the Macondo incident and get serious with what you are best at doing which is playing to your strengths. Put safety at the heart of all your operations so that what happen with Macondo never repeats itself.

    I worked at BP full-time

    Pros

    Large company
    Good retirement benefit
    Recent years try to increase number of female in leadership roles.
    Lavish spending on office equipments and ergonomic analysis.

    Cons

    Company has local rules governed by local HR.. Very unclear and poor local HR. No definite rules/handbook to follow. 1800 HR (BPpeople) support line is useless.
    Relative expensive healthcare plan and very few PTO days for industry standard.
    Managers do not care about employees' feedback.
    Poor mid and upper level management on local site.
    Spend excessive amount of time on trainings regarding BP core values.
    Encourage "open doors" culture but not true at all....
    Tolerate employees with poor performance and do not reward high performance employees.
    Do not fairly promote employees.
    Difficult to climb up career ladder until move around to various BP locations worldwide.

    Advice to Management

    BP corporate needs to standarize local BP divisions rules and encourage local BP leaders to focus more about lower level employees and more closely evaluate reports and information reported by Extended Leadership team.
