How did BP turn from one of the better employers into one of the worst? I used to enjoy my work, now I dread every new workday. It's a drastic difference compared to a decade ago, maybe even less than that. I'm afraid to even think how this place... — read more
Serious question / "real" survey: how would you say the Agility drive and the re-org (the resource level and how they are used within the new company structure and updated personnel R&R) working in your view so far? I'll start - GoM P&O, production /... — read more
Those who are not cut, they are leaving in droves. Can a company even stop leaving of so many skilled people with tremendous expertise? I'm afraid that soon there will be no such great employees here at all. It’s amazing to me how this company... — read more
Bernie and Lawler bro seem intent on burning this company to the ground in terms of value and employee morale. BP used to be on the path to overtake Exxon and yet now they are about to be surpassed by COP in market cap. Wtf happened ?
What does "be more agile" even mean???
All O&G companies are the same. Those who are looking to leave Shell because they are hoping to find something better are in for a rude awakening. Everywhere you go in this industry you'll find the same problems. No transparency, lack of direction... — read more
You are seen as replaceable for as long as they can get somebody cheaper to do your job.
Can I relax because there are no layoff rumors on the horizon?
Only since I got a job here, a little over four years ago, this is a completely different company to which I would certainly not apply for a job. The atmosphere is getting worse every day. Nepotism is on the rise. Unfortunately, I do not see any... — read more
Someone mentioned that the big problem with BP is they make Accenture project managers full time employees. What are the arguments for such thinking? I only somewhat agree.
Workism has always been funny to me, and so are people who subordinate their entire lives to get to their current job position. When you talk to such people, it seems as if they have no individual identity, only their careers. Well, that was funny... — read more
I’m not sure if it’s just my feeling that deadlines have never been shorter or have I lost all motivation to work? I'm pretty sure it's the first one. Even with all the effort to use time more effectively than ever before, it’s really a big... — read more
My advice to people who are just coming here is to gather as much knowledge as they can in the shortest possible time and look for another opportunity as soon as possible. Basically, I feel sorry for all the talented people who will come here and be... — read more
Yes, BP is hiring. How do I know? Because they reached out to me to tell me that I had moved to the next level of interviews. What was that level? I had to agree to have an interview that involved me talking to my computer screen / cell phone to... — read more
I've heard several employees make off handed comments regarding the extreme nepotism and favoritism that happens here. I've heard folks speak about people with family and friend connections receiving promotions over more qualified employees and... — read more
Out of curiosity, I wonder at which grade do new recruits on the Future Leaders Programme join in bp?
First–quarter results will be released on Tuesday. What are your predictions? Analysts write that the attention will be mostly focused on BP’s views on the accelerating energy transition.
If you have shares from your retirement plan, use the votes to get rid of this ELT and change the strategy back!!!
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
