I worked at BP full-time (More than a 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 Management

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

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good work environment; working conditions are good; flexible working hours; challenging; personal development encouraged; very competitive and good work ethics are encouraged.

    Cons

    Its not a place for lazy and laid back people without an ambition and drive for success. You've got to be one step ahead to fit into the work environment.

    Advice to Management

    To keep up with the good job of encouraging and supporting their staff in personal development and in providing a conducive work environment.

    I worked at BP as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary.... good working conditions...lots of work... Most people you work with are pleasant.

    Cons

    Some of the people you were forced to work with run hot and cold... or would be characterized as 2 faced. Not a lot of new positions.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the mid level managers do not work to obtain the best performance out of their staff. But there have been recent mgmt changes to correct that--
