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…
My daily role is focused on Process Safety which is a specific area within Process Engineering. I have daily tasks and long term projects to deliver on. It is not as technically challenging as a unit Process Engineer role however you require a strong foundation in the processes in order to understand our Process Safety risks.
Be yourself - be real
I always do my hours, but they allow you to be flexible through working from home.
I think the pay is very good. The bonuses are based on global group, country unit and team performance. I think this is fair and often generous.
Discount at the Pilates studio in the building, "My Day" (additional day of leave to do whatever makes you happy), two volunteer days (additional days of leave to give back to approved charities), extra week of leave (5th week) if you book in all leave.
Departmental structure is quite flat (reflected in open plan seating) making management visible and accessible. Internal communication is made via email, Yammer, and regular village and town halls. Performance feedback and praise and recognition varies by department and team (more informal in Sales & Marketing, more formal in Finance). Managers make excellent mentors in their attitudes, knowledge and skills.
Could be better.
It is a slow process and often the opportunity will only arise if there is a vacancy due to a move in higher level roles.
Focus on diversity for recruitment for both women and aboriginals. High retention rate at the company. Company provides careers leave.
Ensure they interview from different program. Part of the career trackers program - program aimed at recruiting from the aboriginal community.
Opal fuel (for Aboriginal communities), OzHarvest (provides fuel for distribution vehicles and coordinates employee participation in events), every employee receives two volunteer days every year (additional day of leave to give time and effort to approved charities), employee matching fund (for charity donations).
They're clean and open. And bright. They have coffee machines. And a yoga studio in the ground floor for surrounding offices. Close to cafes. Easy public transport access. It is all flexi-desking, so be prepared for not having a permanent personal desk. Dress code? Dress respectably, and you'll be fine. "Business casual" is probably the closest dress code. Some people wear branded uniform shirts every day, some people wear suits. These people can sit next to each other but isnt a requirement.
