BP Australia Reviews
Reviews by BP Australia graduate employees
- starstarstarstarstar3.8GradAustralia surveyed 16 graduates working at BP Australia . Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 16 responses.
- Flexibility and work-life balance Support, you feel like a member of the team Variety in work content and the opportunity to develop and be challenged
- Exciting industry to be in
- Culture - everyone is very friendly and supportive (personally and professionally).
- Some nice people here
- Flexibility, very friendly atmosphere
- Some cultural aspects, such as safety attitudes
- Minimal transparency on opportunities being available
- Depending on what team you are in you may be required to do a significant amount of work that does not utilise your tertiary level of education (typical of teams that do not have well established roles for graduates). I do understand though that someone has to do this work and a graduate is the most likely candidate...but it should not dominate in terms of time.
- Graduate work is quite unfulfilling; lack of openness to fresh ideas
- Slightly bureaucratic
What insiders say about…
I am satisfied with my role on a week-to-week/month-to-month basis. On a day-to-day basis I respond to requests from team members to collate and analyse company, market and industry data, and prepare presentations for business projects and requests. I also have opportunities to lead smaller projects and presentations that I identify a need for on a month-to-month basis. Overall, on a day-to-day basis my role can involve quite mundane activities that do not utilise my tertiary level education, but with a bigger picture view I see the benefit in my exposure to high-level concepts and business leaders as my team operates across the business.
Casual and friendly Grads are well connected and social
Interviews were face to face, no video or phone interviews. Assessment centre was quite straightforward and there was an opportunity to meet people from the company outside of the interviewing process.
How can you demonstrate the Company's values? Why do you want to work here? What do you offer the Company and what are your interests?
Research and make sure you know the history, know the values and understand who you are applying to work for. Have passion for the values, don't apply if you aren't willing to demonstrate how these values link to you.
Work is really flexible with hours to make sure you have a good work/life balance. There is always the opportunity to have a conversation about your needs and how they can be met.
Still have yet to receive any information on bonuses. Pay could be made more competitive, particularly for those with multiple, or higher-level degrees.
Work-life balance relationship with NAB where you receive discounts, reduced rates on loans, etc.
Managers are usually extremely busy but are happy to put aside time to talk if you have any concerns and to provide feedback, praise and recognition. Higher level seniors are usually not accessible.
Company adopts a 70-20-10 approach (learning and development on the job-through others-through structured courses). I would prefer more formal training through the job (rotation role). Formal training is currently facilitated by HR tag and Learning Academy. I don't think they are very qualified but they use quite extensive materials. I think the most important thing is that the sessions continue the learning process engagement. Skills picked up - self-awareness, personal leadership, strengths identification, logical and analytical reasoning, networking.
Flat structure but good people get jobs
There is a very clear focus on equality with a large number of female employees and support for women to rise to higher level roles.
Indigenous internship program
Matched giving to charities.
Across three levels with majority of employees on two levels. Open plan. Well-located in CBD next to major train station and places to get lunch. Access to company-only changing facilities in the building. Business casual dress code, but can be more formal or even less formal depending on the department and team. On Fridays we have casual clothes days and employees are encouraged to wear company merchandise.
