Dependant on the level you sit at is how this company value your work life balance, Management work from home frequently when the grunts of the business must attend the office irrelevant to what they have on in their home life. Alot of double standards more a do as i say not as i do culture

It is a great place to work with great benefits, wonderful people to work with and many changing technologies that you learn new things all of the time. Management is very supportive and encouraging. The hardest part is sometimes keeping up with all the changes. What I enjoy most and will miss the most will be my co-workers.

Its has great workplace culture, but management destroys it. Coming from a job in which i was in charge of pretty much everything it was an abrupt change that i had to only "work" for a couple of hours and i was done. To much unnecessary procedures.

The company was going through some changes; buy-outs/ eliminated Jobs roles and cutting hours. It was a hard time for me just having a baby and knowing that I will be losing my job.

BP is an international company that has, over the years, groomed many entry level employees for management. They have provided (actually required much of this) opportunities to be trained in areas that allowed for advancement. They allowed a flexible work schedule within the guidelines of the different departments. There were many amenities on campus (cafeteria, coffee shops, wellness medical center, childcare center, gym/fitness center, walking paths) which were available to all employees and contractors. The compensation programs, vacation guidelines and bonus structures made for an excellent employment package.
Pros
Employment guidelines, attention to safety
Cons
Oil and gas industry, subject to economy downturns.

Pros
Meeting former Olympians, and being around professional people
Cons
The opportunity was only short-term.

A typical day at work was arriving at the building early so you could meet up with other employees in the break room before the official work day begins. The majority of the Managers were very professional.
