    I have been working at BP full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance, wonderful benefits, lots of training.

    Cons

    Turning into a call center mentality, hiring at lowest possible pay now, scrambling to find office supplies. In short, since the oil spill, all "perks" of an office such as post it notes or the occasional free pizza are all but gone. Every penny is pinched at the employee level, yet upper management still spend like rock stars.

    Advice to Management

    quit trying to get the "old timers" aka those hired prior to the oil spill, to quit in order to hire someone at 50% of the cost.

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

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, work location are all good. I like the type of work that I get to do.

    Cons

    But I'm expected to do the work of 3 people which makes work very stressful. I have little time to do any real work because of all the meetings I have to attend.

    Advice to Management

    Get feedback from workers on work-life balance. Far too many people are too busy to do their jobs well.
