I have been working at BP full-time

Pros

Great pay, benefits, and opportunities for development. The people I worked with were professional and valued my thoughts and opinions. Overall BP has a very good culture.

Cons

Some of BP's processes in their downstream segment are inefficient and can be frustrating, particularly their projects.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at BP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and 401k, salary, social network, volunteer opportunities and corporate events, support for education, nice facilities, global company, career opportunities are available (albeit a bit slow), support for community.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, lack of systematic processes, negative/whining culture, poor systems, constant change that drags on and on. Performance ratings are totally subjective. Lack of personal accountability (lends to lack of decision making).

    A good place to develop, not sure it's a good place to build an entire career. The culture and bureaucracy alone are enough to add ample (unnecessary) stress. BP has a long ways to go to become a mature, efficient company.

    Advice to Management

    Too many people talking about decisions, not enough making them.


  2. "Process-Driven and Risk Averse"

    I have been working at BP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Upper management communicates well via email or townhall. Development plans well-intended and allow for manager-employee feedback. Steady raises. Still has a pension as well as 401k!

    Cons

    Way too process and risk-driven. Cannot move anything forward without several layers of approval. Current subsea construction group functional structure dysfunctional.
