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

Meetings, time to work on projects, team working culture and really support in development from the top down. Unfortunately, BP seems to be looking to leave the UK which is a huge shame and a huge loss.

Most enjoyable part is the encouragement to continue learning and developing with clear opportunities for career progression.
Pros
career development is big
Cons
job security is poor due to company downsizing and moving out of petrochemicals

A typical day at work would involve the repair and maintenance of the site. I have learned how to work well within a team and as an individual, while under strict timescales/deadlines. During my time here, I was always busy with a good flow of work coming through. I was already treated fairly and the management are second to none. The most difficult part of this job was working under pressure to provide high standards within a certain time slot, in order to maintain schedules. I loved the fact that I was able to work with different people on a daily basis and the excitement that everyday brought a new challenge.
Pros
There was always regular work.
Cons
The distance between work and home.
