    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at BP full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are very good. Nice campus in Sunbury. Flexible working in some departments but some managers still favour presenteeism.

    Cons

    IT&S Organisation fosters a face-that-fits promotion and opportunity culture. While senior leaders express concern at the lack of women in leadership roles, there has been little progress in remedying the issue. Alpha male mentality throughout the recent transformation of the organisation. Again, managers talk a lot about embracing diversity but there is underlying misogyny in their attitudes.

    Advice to Management

    Accept that there is a problem with the current senior leadership in IT&S. Stop appointing favourites and pretending it has been a fair process.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits (pension, share, flex time in upstream)

    Cons

    BP values are not really upheld by mid level management despite the senior leaders clearly exhibiting them

    Advice to Management

    Do far more skip meetings and skip several layers....on 1 to 1 basis, not groups.

    Pros

    Annual employee survey taken seriously by Senior management.

    Cons

    Middle management very cliquey. Subtle but insidious racism leaves bad taste.

    Advice to Management

    Give managers training on inherent bias - don't assume all racism is the "in your face" type we hear of at football games.
