4.9 of 5 stars

Challenging and substantial work in a fun/relaxed environment.
Houston, TX | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Everyone was very welcoming and helpful. In addition the project I was assigned hard, but not overwhelming.


Downers

It's honestly hard for me to think of what I didn't like about this place. Given recent events I was concerned about the company's future, but in time all doubts were alleviated. I feel confident that BP has taken, and will continue to take, the right steps moving forward.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would look carefully at the work-life balance BP has to offer. The 9/80 work schedule, free personal training and world-class professional development programs are a few examples.


Would You Recommend

Yes

If you want to see what real engineers do on the cutting edge of industry, work at BP
Houston, TX | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I was given real responsibility within the team. THe team had goals to meet that would not have been met if I had not done my part.

The interns are treated well. We were taken out to an Astor game (baseball), Dynamo Game (soccer), movie sneek preview, and many free lunch and learns.

Compensate well. The best benefits package I have ever had. (insurance, 401K, pension) even as an intern.

Every other Friday we had off.


Downers

At times I was given little direction on how to go about achieving my deliverables. (but that's how real life work is going to be so I guess it is still a positive thing that I went through this as an intern).


Advice to Potential Interns

When considering BP as a potential employer, ask yourself what you value most. BP has learned a lot from the Macondo disaster in 2010. If you value safety, BP would be a great fit for you. If you value collaboration, BP would be a good fit for you. I felt no internal competition while I was at BP. Everyone truly seeks to help each other out.


Advice to Management

All of the elements mentioned in the question are addressed very well at BP. My one advice to management is to find some way to accommodate an intern who would like to stay longer then 12 weeks if you like them and they fit well with the team they are assigned to.
