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

Too many people feel they own the decision right. Lots of entrenched beliefs about how things are done and different approaches are hugely resisted. To the extent the old guard will collaborate to stifle success.
Some groups of people do not have the right to implement change, especially if you look different from the majority. Lots of clique and institutional resistance.
Pros
Great opportunity for wide breath of work experiences
Cons
Old guard, too influential, they have become blockers to real progress.

An overall good experience. Depending on the area, some customers can be quite racist but usually, that was not my experience. The hours are quite tiring as they are from 6am-2pm 2pm-10pm and 10pm-6pm which means that some compromise has to be made. Management was great, they listen to your input and problems efficiently. The hardest part of the job is wearing steel-toed shoes as they are heavy and should only be used for people on the shop floor (but that is not the case). Also, making mistakes while authorising fuel pumps is easy because you have to serve customers at the same time. The most enjoyable part is meeting nice coworkers and free coffee to get you through the shift.
Pros
15% off food
Cons
Awkward hours, difficult customers

BP is a family oriented company offering comparatively great pay at each level and good work-life balance.

The down side to this however is that progression opportunities can be limited to those who are young and ambitious as many employees within BP prefer to maintain the status-quo to retain work-life balance.
Pros
Great pay and work-life balance
Cons
Progression opportunities can be limited at times

Once renowned for being an employer that really looked after their staff, they're no different from the vast majority of large corporates. The things that distinguished it as a great employer like a good WLB (Work Life Balance) etc isn't so much the case anymore. Tends to be a 'bit behind the curve' in relation to changing attitudes and still progress to be made in Diversity & Inclusion.
Pros
Free Lunches, Decent Benefits Package
Cons
Long hours, still bureaucratic, archaic attitudes in certain areas

I have had excellent opportunity to grow and develop technically since joining the company. Very experience and highly motivated colleagues. There is life work balance with every other Friday off once you put in your contractual hours.

I was bullied in this company by lady managers in the stocks team. They are not a nice bunch as they claim to be.

I don't know how they get away with the gang culture. Disgusting place.
