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.

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.

busy keeping team running across campuses ensuring service levels kept up. Best part of working here is the interesting people we work with and the hardest keeping ahead of client requirements.
