    I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time for more than 5 years


    Compensation and benefits second to none, work/life balance respected


    Bureacracy common of larger corporations, many layers of managment, slow progression (in most cases)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a sense of urgency in execution of strategy, innovation needs to be encouraged.
