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

    Pros

    Pleasant working environment, excellent benefits, work flexibility plays a big role, family oriented, career development focus.

    Cons

    Too complex processes; not all regions or even countries within same region follow standard processes. Decision making restricted to few upper management, overall poor management with low leadership skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it simple - establish standard processes across all regions. Develop better coaching+leadership mentality across mid-level management.

    I have been working at BP

    Pros

    good salary, good hours (8 to 6), great environment and free lunch.
    Moreover you learn from the best traders in the world, something that gives to you very strong foundations

    Cons

    You actually need 3 years until you start trading. Moreover you have to sit a test which if you do not pass you either have to leave the company or to choose another role.
