The Denver office has a family friendly culture and events. Opportunities to grow vary by department. People are mostly friendly. They have a 9/80 work schedule which is really nice.
Family friendly, good benefits and salary
Oil and gas downturns
If you’re a contractor, it’s okay to work for BP. But, if they want to hire you permanently, run away
I worked here for 15 years. The first few years were good. After Texas City refinery blew up, and the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the environment went toxic at the office. You have to compete for your job and my manager is technically excellent but lacks management skills. Try to get in as a contractor, they will eventually hire you permanently if you’re capable, learn as much as you can and get out. No such thing as diversity and inclusion there, salary is okay and most employees are working scared. Job security is non-existent at BP!
Management is top heavy. Manager and Team Leads are doing politics
The company focuses on developing recently hired staff by current management. Turnover on management causes organizational changes and you may loose career track. Benefits are good if you get them while employed; company could modernized its benefits offer (retirement) to move with the person if they are exited before retirement which is very likely.
The world is changing fast and BP is changing with it. The mix of energy that provides heat, light and mobility for billions of people is shifting towards lower carbon sources, driven by advances in technology and growing concerns about climate change.
Good work/life balance in my business Small group so very difficult to move to another position unless someone retires or quits Difficult to break into other business unless you started there and have worked your way up.
Does not micro-manage
Lack of employee development from management
- A typical day would be 9-5. Some days can be busy and staff being overstretched which leads to doing overtime hours which is not uncommon. - As well as learning the role and the gist of the industry, I've personally learned to enhance my skills on excel, e.g pivot, conditional formatting, vlookup etc. Shortcut keys absolutely helped increase my performance to enable me to manage my work. - Management is okay. Some decisions can be questionable on whether it is beneficial for the teams across the board. - Workplace culture is good and adhered to. Staff are looked after very well in circumstances where it be a personal matter or health related issue etc. - The hardest part of the job would be covering absence staff on sick leave, especially on busy days. - The most enjoyable part of the job is the completion of your work and getting it under control to a level that is manageable and also the incentive of receiving an annual bonus. The company can sometimes arrange events.
Enjoyed the ability to gain work experience in different areas. The Flexibility to work from home Willingness of management to invest time to allow local school children and university undergrads to have work placements, Respect for the various D&I groups that a quarterly council was help to listen to various groups such as disability awareness, working parents etc
free lunches, invest in D&I, respects work life balance
Difficult to move to next level internally
Organizations in the company face reorg every 2 years, especially after Deep Water Horizon incident. These days, reorg means layoffs. Dreams of retiring from the company are now farfetched for most, and possibly obtainable by a chosen few. Still a ways to go for goals of diversity and inclusion, especially at the pinnacle of the organization. Everyone looks the same for the vast majority...look up photos of top level executive leadership for examples. If you can survive layoffs, good place to work hard, earn a descent to good salary, maybe work-life balance, but for most, no realistic opportunities to advance to higher levels.
Layoffs, Opportunities to transition and advance are limited
I like the people and culture here. However, not much opportunities for juniors to learn more and move up. Love the flexible working time here which is really convenient for employees.
BP is one of the few companies that recognizes that their employees have a life outside of the office. However, the numerous reorgnazations has created a non-cohesive work environment in which information is not readily shared and managers do not provide constructive feedback.
Work life balance
Numerous reorganizations, non-cohesive work environment
Typical day is full production mode, no time for breaks. Lofty management goals paired with weak infrastructure makes it hard to advance the company to its full potential. Hardest part of the job is to keep up with the average minimum of 50-60 hours per week. Nothing enjoyable about this job, worst mistake ever made.
Free phone for easy access, good Universal Life insurance option
Micromanaged on breaks, hours worked, workflow, no work/life balance
I loved working for BP. The culture was professional, friendly and inclusive of all people regardless of their race, religion, or degrees. I loved working with other experienced capable people it made the atmosphere pleasant and less political.
