Pros

Benefits, Health, Retirement, pay is very good. Very satisfied as of now and when my retirement kicks in 767,000 in retirement

Cons

It seems like oil will be scarce in the next 25 years so job outlook may not be well. Hopefully no more oil spills.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay & benefits, lots of opportunity to spread your wings if your willing to travel

    Cons

    More bureaucracy than the federal government. Seems like the company is still trying to sort through the many mergers of late 90's. Stock options only given to higher levels in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on track with efforts to standardize the organizational structure, design specifications, and QA/QC program to further reduce risk, Share stock options with the worker bees lower in the ranks and you might be surprised how much more efficient they become.


  2. "Relaxed work environment, take care of employees."

    Pros

    The oil business is quite a slow and relaxed culture. They make a lot of money and the work is not too crazy. People are professional and they take care of employees, although the pay could have been better (I worked in wholesale and retail fuels, the less sexy side of the business, i.e. "downstream").

    Cons

    The pay could have been better. Things took a long time to get done. It was not as exciting in the downstream business.

    Advice to Management

    Make safety a number one priority (you know what I'm saying here) and also don't greenwash, saying the company is beyond petroleum unless there is a true strategic direction for the company. The company was focusing on renewables for awhile before more recently toning it back.
