Current Employee - Specialist-Plant Support Engineer

I have been working at GE full-time

Pros

Ge is a large company globally but in APAC area we cooperate as a small company with large competence and experience.

Cons

Difficult to keep track of all new procedures

Current Employee - Retail

I have been working at BP full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Innovative culture regardless of long tenures, excellent people culture where one feels valued and respected no matter what. Great exposure to retail business. The company is saying goodbye to... people with dignity and respect, unlike other big names in australia. Health issues through the year don't lead one to a bad performance review.

Cons

Frequent restructures left a bunch of unhappy people with slightly toxic attitudes in the roles they detest , up to a point someone needs to constantly step up to complete their work. Communication... can be improved. A few dinosaurs lacking leadership and ownership.

Advice to Management

Keep cleaning up the house, but make sure the teams are truly empowered with new tech to reduce manual effort.
