The call with Bernard yesterday was shocking the amount of people who have completely lost faith in Speak Up at bp. I was shocked at how many damning comments there were about people being unable to speak up, fearing retaliation, leaders being... — read more
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
Best way to upskill to renewables if you are an reservoir engineer, drilling engineer or geologist?
Anyone know how many cuts anticipated in uk, particularly sunbury
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
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
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
I was wondering if you could help with relative salary progression in BP in Engineering (officee based) either UK/US.
List of survivors' out - can't see anything near the big 25% cut L1 and L2 announced?
attended the townhall and needed some space to vent Bernard's "what is insta-worthy" leadership style is going to sink this company couldn't believe Star kept a straight face when she tried to sell her LT as diverse. Then she came up with... — read more
Heard Denver is getting shut down, anyone else k ow about this?
Looks like the vast majority of those let go were white male. Seems to be a common thing with the D&I days in companies. I have yet to hear of a woman getting let go, I am sure they are out there. Only one person I know let go was non-white, but... — read more
Such a bad day.... I hope all of you are ok
Looks like having people worry about being laid off 24/7 is working. Several people I know have quit or are getting ready to quit. I'm pretty sure that's part of BP's tactic: make the work environment so unbearable (with a constant threat of layoffs... — read more
BP could have chosen to use its capital and skills to focus on blue hydrogen to provide clean, reliable and affordable energy but that would require oil company skills which we will soon no longer have. Instead it has been decided to focus on solar... — read more
I wonder what you think and how you would like a scenario where a private equity company with money buys BP at a low stock price (like someone here mentioned might happen sometimes next year)? I myself have divided opinion on this. The debt is big... — read more
FFS, have you no shame? You still have your job when millions of people have lost their livelihoods and all you can think to do is b–ch about how badly BP is treating you? Then why don't you trade with some of those who would do your job with a... — read more
I’m just going to throw this out there. Curious if anyone has worked for a company that was worse than BP, especially when it comes to how horrible the work environment is, or which has bosses who treat their employees like c-ap, or insane politics... — read more
Is BP known for having layoffs right before or after holidays? Or can this be considered a safe time?
Should I be worried?? No news hope my line manager isn’t taking so long to make me more anxious :-(
This is a generic discussion thread to capture comments about potential BP Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
If you aren’t placed in a role, my suggestion is to pick yourselves up quickly. Update your resume/cv, update your LinkedIn, set up job alerts on LinkedIn and apply for roles quickly. Not having them updated can feel like a big hurdle and blocker... — read more
So it seems that impacted employees are telling suppliers, who are telling other employees, but employees are not allowed to speak with each other. And so, the rumor mill churns. Very unhealthy. Very unproductive.
That’s very disturbing that we who did EOI are supposed to send a robust MOC, but the secrecy mode they are conducting these conversations and decisions let us not knowing who to train ir send our MOCs to.. waste of time training everybody “ just in... — read more
I have enjoyed my years here but now it's time to move on. I have received a good offer, but it's from a much, much smaller company and that comes with its own risks. I'm scared to just walk out, but if there was severance involved, it would be much... — read more
BL said there will be changes to benefits specific to regions. Will the very expensive final salary pension go or stay to suit T1-T3 cushy salaries?

We’re 3 days in and everyone I’ve talked to has kept their position. I’m in upstream. So where are all the cuts happening?
Good luck to all. I left the company back in June! Yes it can be scary, but for most the grass is greener!
Of the 10,000 layoffs over half are coming in the US. In just the first 2 days I’ve learned half my team is laid off, over two thirds in Projects, Wells. Obliteration of the upstream to make up for so many tier 2 and tier 3 leaders from the... — read more
People should be selected for roles based on merit, not made to fit a selection criteria. You should NOT run a multi-billion dollar, multi-national company with your mates. Expecting to beat profit margins of other multi-billion dollar... — read more
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
People are weighing heavily on me this week so I wanted to post a quote that I have always absolutely loved and it has helped me in so many situations. I am not religious, but no matter what you believe, it still holds true. "We often look to God... — read more
As we are forced to endure another round of painful layoffs, some may ponder how Jim Ratcliffe made himself $18 billion (and two of his other partners became multi billionaires) out of BP's assets. Could BP management be improved? I guess this is... — read more
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

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
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
