Topics regarding layoffs at BP PLC


Hi all. I have been through layoff cycles at a few other companies. This was my first at BP. Fortunately, I was selected, but the majority of the staff on my team was not. At my previous companies, the first action taken was to cancel or not renew... —  read more 

The Friend Zone

I am seeing more and more that people with experience are being exited and replaced by far less experienced people. It is glaringly obvious that experience doesn’t count for much and this is more about who is liked. So many promotions my god. .. —  read more 

Diversity in BP

Looks like BP k–led the diversity in the organisation with this restructuring. Whilst gender diversity was not impacted, people who are not the typical alpha male/ female that leadership likes the most were worst affected. If you are an introvert... —  read more 

UK Salary Scale

Not sure if anyone can help but I wonder what is the typical salary expectations for UK (grades G-I)? Little information is available internally and it seems to be a bad time to negotiate, but would be handy to know! Many thanks

Things have changed here

BP was never an ideal employer, but at least it used to treat its employees somewhat decently. Now even that is gone. This ELT couldn't care less about any of us and they are not afraid to show it. But it has always been known that how well you treat... —  read more 

(Don’t) talk!

I think what is especially hard is that employees are forbidden from talking to eachother until Dec 1. Seriously, my coworkers are the only people I will be able to relate with after I have my conversation with my boss. And I’m told I can’t talk to... —  read more 

Some good advice

As someone who is in his mid 50s and have seen my position downsized and eliminated three times in my career, the best advice I can give anyone is to allow for grieving but be prepared to pick yourself off the floor just as fast as you can. This is... —  read more 

This was a suprise

Who else left BP for another job just to realize how much the company was underpaying them? I'm doing a very similar job to what I was doing there and I'm paid more than 16k more a year for it. And this is in the middle of a raging pandemic and a... —  read more
