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

    Pros

    Compensation, work/life balance, & rotation opportunities.

    Cons

    Always in the middle of a reorganization, not enough quality work to do, huge UK based bureaucracy, hard to get things done fast & efficiently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit the re-orgs! Find something better to do with your 2 year tenure as a Senior Manager or VP. Stop outsourcing complicated work/processes; rather make an effort to become more efficient with the high performers that you have.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance and benefits. Good support for training and development. Nice environment in which to work - relatively low stress most of the time due to the cooperative nature of the staff. Opportunities to travel are fantastic. The management are very supportive, and willing to listen to the input of more junior members of teams.

    Limited opportunities for advancement within the company leads to frustration for many.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tendency to keep people trapped in roles for very long durations can be demotivating.

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

    Pros

    well-established corporate governance, well supported personal development (good mentor program), encourage diversity and inclusive culture, most time has good work-life balance, non-aggressive corporate culture

    Cons

    inefficiency due to all kinds of internal control and process driven practices. Due to its support to talents' personal development, the senior management changes every 2-5 years, and subsequently a lot of unnecessary organizational changes all the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For business unit leaders, be more longer-term oriented, and make business decision strategically rather than tactically
