    I have been working at BP full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good life-work balance. Challenging projects. The people who work there are highly capable and want to do the right thing.

    Cons

    In the effort to address issues and defects often additional processes are introduced that create unforeseen complexities. The result is that it can be difficult to progress work at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on reducing complexity by challenging new projects / processes to ensure that they are truly value adding.

    Pros

    The strong team building that is due to the underlaying manager that pushes the employees to take iniatives and report actions that are not normal dyring daily activities

    Cons

    There is a lot of cons but so it is the case of every job in any field and in my personal opinion abd without mitigation i can state that the only con that i perceive is the long working hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on team building

    I worked at BP as a contractor

    Pros

    Really care about the work life balance

    Cons

    There is a culture of bullying in some areas that top management are oblivious to and HR don't want to create waves about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't fall for the charm of bullies -they make the lives of hard working staff hell.
