BP Named One of Chicago's Top Workplaces
CHICAGO -- According to its Chicago-area employees, BP is one of the top places to work in the Windy City.
The Houston-based oil giant landed at No. 7 for large companies on the Chicago Tribune’s Chicago's Top Workplaces 2013 list. For this year's installment, the news outlet went straight to the people who would know best -- the employees.
"Every day is different. The people that I interact with are kind, respectful and wonderful. I love what I do," one BP employee said.
Another added, "I get to solve technical problems. I get to work with a variety of people, and my manager respects that I have a family and life outside of work."
BP has three locations in Illinois and employs 2,485 workers in the state. In total, the company has approximately 20,000 U.S. employees.
