Many layoffs in recent years
Many managed moves within the company. The work environment is very dependent on the team lead you are assigned to. There have been several rounds of layoffs in recent years. The laid off employees are compensated fairly.

Variety and the ability to make my own decisions
My job involves a significant of interaction with others. I enjoy helping people and this is the best part of my job. I have learned to have patience with people as I guide them through the necessary documentation. It is hard sometimes to get people to understand the significance of proper naming conventions! I am a very visual person, so I think its important to structure files and file names in a manner that makes things easy to see and to comprehend. Its all in the details. I enjoy getting projects that may seem a little unclear on what the final product will look like. There are many kind managers here that make you feel like they care about you and your family.

Fun at first, but in time the reality creeps in...
BP is more a banking company that dabbles in oil, placing next to no priority on technical ability or the work at hand. Their process is stifling, and the corporatocracy is unbearable. It is run by people who have never done anything else, hence the leadership sorely lacks the business and technical breadth necessary to effectively steer such a behemoth corporation.

Pulse surveys will be the death of you
every 3 months there is a new pulse survey to ask how you feel about everything from policy and procedure to what you think of management. regardless of how you answer, they never change anything.

World-class super major in upstream oil production.
BP is a global, large organization that has a long history in Alaska and other major oil fields world-wide. BP continues to have significant oil & gas production operations in North America, but is planning to sell all Alaska assets to Hilcorp Energy Company.

Good to their employees
Typical work day of 8 - 5 with flexibility to perform at potential vs being micro-managed. Workplace culture can be stressful if you are insecure but otherwise a great place to work. Most enjoyable part of job was coaching and mentoring younger employees.
Pros
Good salary and benefits
Cons
Long hours and business travel

Working towards the right priorities
Good company to work for, excellent benefits but there is way too much autonomy given to the local operating companies and this way of working self defeats the purpose of a true global organization with standard management processes.
