    I have been working at BP full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Pay, bonus, benefits, coworkers, overall culture and mindset

    Cons

    Big global company that at times is too top heavy to make decisions. Can be a large disconnect between local business units central teams (people in London and Houston don’t always know how oil and gas production works and the ramifications and effort it takes to deliver what is asked). Also BP likes to change, saying around here goes “if you don’t like something, wait two years, it’ll change.” Can’t learn from mistakes, constantly changing systems to new systems that don’t work properly, unsupported and don’t meet requirements. Have now started rolling out new enterprise systems that don’t work properly for weeks after launch and with no actual training on how they work. Employees are expected to just figure it for themselves. Lots debt and expenses from oil spill, oil price downturn and buying assets has led them to sell current assets.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at BP full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Salary, benefits and work life balance are all good (at least compared to consulting). Its competitive, but not nearly as competitive as consulting so easy to stand out if that's your background.

    Cons

    The industry is volatile with oil prices and goes through periodic reorganizations. Need to be strategic about the positions you select at the Company to make sure you remain valuable. Yearly average pay bumps are low unless you're a really good performer. This is pretty common for large corporations though.

    I have been working at BP full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Multi-national so diverse working environment and working across many time zones. Well paid. Good colleagues and a variety of work. Potential to progress (when oil price high). Work life balance respected. Values and behaviours enforced.

    Cons

    Uncertainty (oil price) with regular reorganisations / job cuts. Training not as good or available as it could be.

    I worked at BP full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, great training development

    Cons

    Face-fit culture rather than choosing the best person for the job. Volatility of oil prices causes re-organisations and downsizing every two or three years so job security is uncertain
