I worked at BP full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
Salary/Bonus structure is at the very high end for those willing to live out BP "values". If you are willing to just smile and nod through the endless ebbs and flows of management change, you will be rewarded with a six figure salary amid an archaic and unfulfilling work environment.
Refining has made strides in safety culture over the past several years, emerging morale issues stand to threaten this trend.Cons
You are only as good as your last line manager. If you have any amount of character or personal integrity, you will last only as long as you have a like minded line manager. All bets are off once the inexperienced ladder climbing short timers move through. Senior management frowns upon those with extensive site knowledge as most are highly degreed and their fragile egos will not allow them to take advice from somebody who is "below" them in the scholarly/managerial hierarchy.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Stop using your refineries as production lines for inexperienced ChemE's /managers to move through the system. These people move in and change only for the sake of change and the paragraph it adds to their resume. As passionate leaders try to embed improvements to archaic processes, others just smile and nod knowing that it will never really matter in the end as long as they get a "Delivers Expectations" on their year end review for participating in such a charade. The respected leaders of these refineries are cast off as a result of this reckless thinking at the behest of building the resumes of BP management. What is wrong with having experienced subject matter experts as it relates to refinery operations? Please finish selling off your US assets before the harm you cause becomes irreparable.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
