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.

The aspect of learning the job with many opportunities to understand the scope of work and how it can impacts the economy of both the company and community.

Advice to Potential Interns

Look for opportunities in different avenues. Don't be afraid to ask questions and learn.

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.
