What people are saying about bp
21 days ago
People working for the likes of BP, Shell, Exxon, Nestle, etc. How do you convince yourself this is okay? I'm getting an opportunity in a different firm at like 40% increment from my current job but my primary will be the likes of these monsters destroying the world. Should I go for money or just soothe my conscience at my current low salary?

- 5.0FEATURED REVIEW20 Mar 2023Talent AttractionCurrent Employee, more than 3 yearsLondon, England
Pay and benefits are great including wellbeing allowance Colleagues and leaders care about you Inspiring purpose Care about your work / life balance (hybrid working)
Bureaucracy can get in the way sometimes Can be difficult to navigate org structures

Great work culture and very reasonable working hours. As BP is so big, lots of different areas to get involved with. Generous pay package for engineering roles in the UK, with a 20% flex allowance on top of your base pay essentially meaning that your base pay is effectively upwards of £46,000 as a graduate. Bonuses can be earned on top of that too. Opportunities to travel and work abroad as BP have a lot of office and sites around the world.
Pay may not be as lucrative as finance or consulting companies nor would progression. Graduate programmes lasts typically for 2 or 3 years depending on the programme you're on. As such, you may be on one project for a year or longer, which if you're not enjoying, can be frustrating.

It is a good company to work for and good employee benefits.
Too much of physical exhaustion but expected if working on the site.
