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.
Employment guidelines, attention to safety
Oil and gas industry, subject to economy downturns.
Our job in the Turbine Controls shop is a great job and we are very knowledgeable about our job positions and responsibilities. Our group has designed, programmed and manufactured 73 turbine control panels and control systems in the past twenty five years all while maintaining and trouble shooting problems throughout those years. We work very safely yet we keep up with all planned and unplanned work needs.
BP doesn't know how to run an oil field. I have worked for them 25 years, The work is great. The pay is over the top. Upper management is very inept at actually running an older oil field. They waste more money than they make the share holders. This is common knowledge in the oil producing Majors.
