    Good if you've been around for a while or senior, frustrating in some ways for gen y employees

    Analyst (Current Employee) Melbourne

    ProsReasonably competitive remuneration, great focus on work life balance and individual responsibility, very intelligent colleagues

    ConsFeel for a young commercial side employee it is hard to see where you will be in 5 years or see a path to more senior/managerial levels. Career development is oft spoken of but I do not really see a focus, either implicitly or explicitly of creating opportunities for young people to advance past the grad program. Perhaps the nature on the business in Australia is for people to leave then return, but I enjoy the company and industry and would like to see a move to greater opportunities and value for younger workers outside of marketing or retail in commercial.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFair remuneration, create opportunities both domestically and internationally for young people to be more involved in the success of the company. Need to change the culture yo one of execution, action sync innovation instead of feeling bound by process and being an also-ran in the market

    BP is great company to work for

    Project Engineer (Former Employee) Melbourne

    ProsGood support for employees, reasonable pay and benefits, no expectation to work weekends. Provides quite a bit of variety for staff

    ConsThe company changes direction every 1-2years and focus more on short-term gains than long-term value creation, also there is tolerance for systemic underperformance in some sections

    Advice to Senior Managementfocus on operational excellence, worry less about fads or trendy issues (e.g. climate change etc) if it had done this, maybe deepwater incident would not have happened and company would be prospering better.
