    I have been working at BP

    Pros

    Good benefits (401k with company matching up to 6%), pension, insurance, educational assistance, training, etc. Some groups have 9/80 work schedule and others may allow for other flexible working schedules.

    Cons

    As is with large global corporations, there is so much bureaucracy to get things done. Due to inner politics, management sometimes dictate whether a project will "succeed" regardless of what that state of "success" may look like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to consider flattening some corporate hierarchies so that management can look across groups to ensure decisions are made for the good of the company and not to build certain people or groups' singular objective/value - lots of inefficiencies in process (and ultimately cost).

    I have been working at BP

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. The comedy never ends with terrible upper management decisions that only make the common worker more money. There is so much money in utter confusion.

    Cons

    Our immediate supervisor know what they are doing and know how mismanaged everything is.anyone above the supervisor is usually clueless but it's really funny. I laugh all day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your salary people on how to do what is expected of them. If they still can't do it fire them. Instead of moving them to multiple positions they can't do.

    Pros

    good working environment,
    great team work,
    many great technical gurus, kind people always helpful.

    Cons

    company is getting smaller and smaller. lots of assets are sold, there are less and less projects to work on now.
    it is not good for new hires who want to experience more basins, more fields.
    Permian, GoM shelf, North American Gas, many GoM deepwater fields (Holstein, Horn Mountain, Marlin, King, Durango, Tubular Bells, Kodiak) were all sold after Macondo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have a longer strategic view. many of the actions taken by management are reactive instead of proactive, although it was talked over and over.
