    Approves of CEO

    I worked at BP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    BP offers great terms and conditions and offers a variety of job types across a range of disciplines. They are a international company so can offer some overseas opportunities but don't bank on it. The work can be interesting and there are always exciting challenges to deal with.

    Cons

    They are a company who are forever redesigning themselves in terms of organisational construct so there are a lot of reorganisations. They can also still be quite beaurecratic although they have regularly tried to simplify themselves but there is work to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Get some stability into the organisational structure and stop endless reorganisations.
