I worked at BP full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The company really look after it's employees, from health and safety (BP are big on this) to social life. They pay very well and I found the job to be of low stress.

Cons

Might be difficult to progress quickly through the company as I believe they still have rules on being in a position for a minimum of 2 years before being promoted. Lower level staff aren't always informed directly on their impact on the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be afraid to speak to the little people about the front line work.

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

    Pros

    They pay good, decent benefits (school reimbursement, 401k match, pension, medical, etc). Many opportunities (they are the 4th largest company in the world, assets all over, all types of jobs). Solid job market (constantly hiring most positions, many contract opportunities).

    Cons

    "Yes Men" seem to get management positions about 3/4 of the time, with or without proper qualifications; so all the issues that come with that... Too many processes and procedures that become the focus vs. the actual work. Too much of a "we're all equal" attitude, so the guy doing nothing gets the same recognition as the guy doing all the work (or more sometimes..). They seem to get stuck on pedigree vs. qualifications, so many unqualified people in upper positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize individual's, good and bad. Do the right thing vs. politically correct.
