Thread regarding BP PLC layoffs

I wouldn't recommend a career at BP to anyone who has a family

There are a lot of ex BP X's around. I was devastated by a BP layoff in my 8th year (1992), and that was over 25 years ago and things haven't changed. While I managed to have a pretty successful 28 year career in the oil & gas industry (with another 5 years as a geo in environmental), it is a hard on people to go through a career with the severe ups-and-downs. You get complacent in the good times (buying too big of a house and new car), and then start your kids in college when the bottom drops out. Knowing what I went through, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone now who has a family.

I agree 100% with @VTbncJp-Tuqo .

Of the oil and gas companies, BP is the biggest cheater to its employees. It promises many retiree benefits that people will never get and if they are an inch close to get them, its compliant management will drum up a bunch of lies to ensure those benefits are not granted. BP labor lawyers are the most unethical and biased creatures you will ever cross path. Literally all those labor lawyers from Chicago to Houston combined are not worth a penny all together. That is why they are forever stuck at BP with their rear glue to the chair. In over 20 years, we have never seen any BP labor lawyer employed by the competition. Other employers know better by keeping them at BP the plague is contained.

BP had a culture to run people's credential to the ground. Running is not a strategy to leave them fast enough...do summersaults if that's what it takes to leave now. #bademployer

Oil is cyclical. If you want stability, the petroleum industry isn't it.
