    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Unbeatable work life balance. Competitive pay package. Very friendly colleagues & upper management tries its best to listen. Lots of opportunities to travel.

    Cons

    Cons mainly for new joiners. If you are joining BP aged 40 or above, BP will prove to be a very rewarding career. To fresh graduates, be warned that the O&G industry is declining. A career at BP, while rewarding initially, might set you up for failure in the future. Quite a number of fresh graduates leave after the first two years to pursue fields outside of O&G - usually in IT & Consulting. The IEA and FT has write-ups on the decline of the industry. Don't make the same mistake as many of us who have been here for 5 years or more who are pigeonholed. Career opportunities are scare and the flat structures means that it takes on average 8 years to get promoted to a lead engineer while your other schools mates are being promoted every 2 years. Promotions are based on face/ culture fit rather than merit but this is not dissimilar from other companies. If you do choose to join, focus on the future looking roles like data analyst or IT&S. Avoid the more traditional roles in BP which will be phased out. Lots of the outfits in the BP renewable portfolio are ring-fenced; hence no one from the 'core bp' is able to apply for a job there unless you get appointed.
