Learning the Values and Culture of BP
Houston, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Company culture, training opportunities, strong values, beautiful campus, competitive compensation


Downers

Big company so a little less personable outside of your team, often takes a long time to get something done when other stakeholders involved


Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared to work in a team environment, one of the core values is 'One Team' and that is certainly necessary to get things done in this organization. Also I would recommend always being honest and admitting if you don't know the answer to a question, they would rather you have the courage to admit it rather than making stuff up.

How to function on a team, and why a team is your best asset
Houston, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I really enjoyed and appreciated working on a project that was both meaningful and that will provide application to real world problems. Also, I loved the opportunity to meet people with a ton of experience and industry insight that were fully willing to give insight as a moments notice.


Downers

I missed having my family with me, but that's the nature of internships, isn't it? Also, the intern get-together's were nice, but somewhat immature, as most interns were much younger.


Advice to Potential Interns

This is a great company with great benefits, people, training, and culture. If an offer comes your way from BP, it would be a drastically bad idea to turn it down. Opportunities like the ones found at BP are a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing.


Advice to Management

The midterm reviews should be given a generic schedule and outline company-wide (if possible). Many interns had different experiences with midterms--mine was wonderful, but others mentioned a large uncertainty factor in planning.

Yes

Exciting, challenging, and rewarding experience with BP Reservoir Engineering Team
Houston, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Everyone I worked with was always more than willing to put what they were doing on hold and work with me on my project and answer my questions. Very laid back yet productive and friendly atmosphere in which I loved working in. The internship itself was very well structured and I was given a great project to work on, and my project was a real world project not something just pulled off the shelf for an intern to do.


Downers

I was put into a role that had no prior experience for even though I did learn how to do my job eventually. I was forced to spend a lot of time getting up to speed rather than working on the project. Seated far away from my team and didn't get to interact with them much.


Advice to Potential Interns

Work hard, never be afraid to ask questions, and the only thing limiting you at BP is yourself


Sample Interview Questions

Given a well diagram with bottom hole and surface equipment pressures and asked "when will well stop flowing on its own?"

Tell me about a time when you showed leadership


Advice to Management

Better incorporation of Interns within teams. (This may be a specific case for me because I was told it was not a widespread issue) the Lunch and Learns were awesome and I greatly enjoyed all of the intern activities.

Yes
