I enjoyed working at BP. They treat their people well and the work is challenging. I only left BP as part of the 2015 Upstream Simplification. (i.e., I was laid off.) I currently am desirous of a new job.
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.
