Topics regarding layoffs at BP PLC
I’ve heard rumors that more divestments are coming soon, and they will be a surprise - in line with the petchems divestment
What's attrition like on your team? We keep losing people all the time, it's becoming a real problem.
I think that debt being out of control is our biggest problem, as someone has already mentioned. However, it is not clear to me exactly how long this situation can last and in what way will BP solve its debt problems? Any toughts?
Who doesn’t want to go back to the office? It was nice for me at the beginning, I was finally able to work in much more comfortable conditions. However, I already think that can't go on forever. The apartment has turned into an office, I feel... — read more
Dreaming of things to do in Denver While You're Dead
Is my job perfect? No. But it's better than at the majority of other O&G companies. The main point is that we don't have nearly as many layoffs as they do (go check out some other companies on this webpage - it's a mess all over the place.) Amid a... — read more
Anyone actually get theirs? Not much of Thursday left....that email last week said today right? Am I losing it?
What exactly is included in "London Allowance" (for the UK comp plan)? Previously and now after changes, if any.
Is anyone able to share the high level changes in the comp plan being announced in the UK today?
Thoughts on the newly introduced bp Share program? I'm not optimistic. Shares I received as "reward" a few years back have lost over half of their value by now. What a waste. They hang this long carrot in front of us and when it's time to cash in... — read more
Current leadership has overseen the greatest loss of human and financial capital the company has ever seen. Is the board ready to get rid of this leadership team or watch BP continue to carve itself up for its competitors ? This is exactly what... — read more
Just wanted to post a big F U to Bernard...I don't think any of BP's top execs has been this reviled, and I've been with BP for 20 years and saw and dealt with many of them. It's like he lives in an alternate reality, always worrying more about... — read more
Anyone else stirred up over the end of 9/80s? Don’t worry, I’m sure bp&me will solve all out problems.
This is sad, first loss in a decade. However, I believe that no one expected a better result. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-bp-results/pandemic-drives-oil-major-bp-to-first-loss-in-a-decade-idUSKBN2A20M1 I wonder what will happen next... — read more
Why is there so many external hiring job posts for BP? Do they not have enough talent being laid off to fill some of those positions?
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
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
