    3.0
    Current Employee - Senior Electrical Engineer in Aberdeen, Scotland

    I have been working at BP full-time

    Pros

    My experience and observation are that BP is a fairly great place to be and purse career development. The pay package is relatively attractive and approximately reflective of the oil and gas industry market rate around the world,for each skill set a professional has.

    Cons

    While the pay is somewhat fair,it's not as good as what is obtainable in other oil and gas companies,especially, those in the Middle East and other locations.

    Former Employee - Personal Assistant in London, England

    I worked at BP full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good salary, Lunch provided, HR on the ball.

    Cons

    the VP I was supporting wanted to be called "Sir" and thought he was god, the team I was working in were not very welcoming at all and barely spoke to me from the start. Extremely Hierarchical, was told I was not allowed to work from home and that I had to "earn the right" and that working from home was a "gift". Having come from a different industry there was no help or support and because of the team I was in I felt very nervous about asking questions.
