    Great Company to work for as a contactor

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Sunbury, England

    ProsThe work life balance is great, especially being a contractor, you can work from home the majority of the time based on your role. The work environment is great, very adaptable, and support is available all the time. The contractor rates are very competitive and there is a chance for renewal. The projects are quite fun. Great offices in Sunbury, over 4500 employees with a nice secure car park.

    ConsFrom what I have seen as a contractor here, the progression for permanent employees is lacking, and there aren't many growth opportunities for permanent employee's. The senior management is a bit of a joke, its like lions being led by donkeys. The employees don't really communicate with you much and prefer to keep their heads down and carry on with the work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinuous Improvement is something you need to look out for. Treating contractors like scape-goats is common at BP, however instead of cutting costs by removing contractors, why not offer them a perm position and see how they respond instead of advertising the role they specialise in internally.
