I worked at BP full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There were 9/80 work schedules, and you had the freedom to work from home. BP is very much into safety and the health and well being of the employees.

Cons

When you are on call it can be very tiresome. Being that your counterpart is in another country it is possible for you to work all night on some nights and turn around and do it again the next day.

Advice to Management

Consider following the sun when it comes to on call.

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