There is too much process. Innovation cannot exist.

Houston, TX

ProsGreat benefits and long term stability. Long term career path can be promising for those desiring to have a single company career.

ConsToo much process. The company is run like a machine. Governance is needed, but BHP goes to the extreme.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize that your people have lives . Even though the company allows for a work /life balance, the unwritten expectation of management does not allign.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Professional people… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
