      Learning Service Centre (LSC)

      Pros

      The work is interesting although can be transactional

      Cons

      There is very high turnover. Many of LSC staff are contractors so the high turnover may not be visible internally to HR. BP is known for supporting work life balance. The LSC has set working conditions created by the leadership team that are very different to the rest of BP. The work life balance is poor. BP offers flexible working but at the LSC employees are not permitted flexible working (very strict working hours of 9-5) or to work from home. Some of the leadership team do work from home. Better when busy is a LSC value that should be better when efficient. There are lots of unnecessary processes and trackers that don't add value. Resource is poorly managed. I would not recommend working here. Most people would be accustomed to a more forward thinking flexible workplace.
