I enjoyed my time at BP immensely.

The culture puts people first and the learning experiences were excellent.


I had the pleasure of working for very forward thinking and progressive management team in terms of enterprise IT and particularly enjoyed the last 4 years getting hands on exposure migrating BP's on premise databases to the Amazon and Azure clouds.
Pros
progressive IT vision
Cons
none of any real conseqence

Poor management within the department I work in, made to feel as if you are not part of the team. Always looked upon as if 'oh they're just a contractor, they must be earning a fortune'. In fact all full time employees received bonuses and reward gifts this year but nothing as far a contract staff are concerned. Daily rate cut three years ago and not risen since despite annual requests. Contractors be aware.

colleagues are a good laugh. you'll never be bored. Management will listen to you and try to help personal or professional issues. pays a little over minimum wage. communication lacking between head office and stores.

on the whole it's a good job.
Pros
15% off in shop. 50% off lunch up to £6

I worked as a contractor on a short term contract with BP for 7 months. I really enjoyed my time here, it was challenging and I improved my logistical skills, it was my first position working for an operator and the culture was a little different that what I was used to. Great company to work for and the management were great. The best part about this job was the day rate.
Pros
Free Lunches
Cons
Short term contract.

Very busy environment, well structured, though communication can be slow and ineffective in a large organisation. Good working culture with a can do and get it done attitude.

BP is an excellent organisation to have worked for over the last 25 years. This is a company who make clear the expectations and values that all employees must be committed to when part of the firm.

In my career I have worked across the majority of the BP portfolio of businesses which included International assignments. All the business units have differing challenges but the commitment within the teams and the shared strive for excellence is visible at all times. Everybody working for BP shared the same desire to 'do the right thing' This is a company who value and encourage diversity and inclusion. The playing field is level for all employees which encourages development and progression. This is a great example of a learning organisation.
Pros
Great place to work
Cons
none

Unless your face fits a company where you'll go nowhere. Aberdeen is seen as unimportant with all decision of import being made in Sunbury.
Pros
Looks good on your CV
Cons
Too many to list

I worked for BP for 30 years. I began as a Radio and Electronics Officer and ended up in the North Sea, initially on a support vessel and latterly in the Forties Field on Forties Delta.
I went into Planning from my production role, and finished up in the Continuous Improvement arena, based both offshore and for two years in BP's Dyce Office.

I loved every day that I was with BP. They are perhaps one of the best employers in the world and extremely professional in all aspects of the company.
Pros
Excellent Salary levels in all trades.
Cons
Working offshore could occasionally have its problems.

My day ay work is typically challenging each day as each day brings on new challenge in procurement at BP. Procure to Pay in itself is demanding and since it is a critical stage before purchase requires loads of critical decision to make and audits to do before approving a Purchase order.

Co- Wokers are co-operative and friendly to work wtih as Bp as a nice work culture.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Salary is a bit low

I learned how to handle customer complaints and resolve it even in very busy environment.
I developed taking more challenges to run BP garage.

There are plenty of things to concentrate at once.

I'm doing outstandingly good
