I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Varied experience, recognition both internally and externally and exposure to growth opportunities as well as to meaningful projects.

Cons

Very bureaucratic and terribly slow business processes can get in the way of performing the actual job. Compared to engineering consulting firms, little experience in the way of intellectual stimulation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve internal communication processes to speed up work. Also reduce the dependence on contractors for nearly everything.

    Please live your values, add some colour to the organisation and listen to people who know what they are doing. Don't change strategy every 4 months.

    I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Australia based
    Global
    Large
    A very good global training program for mid level management. Conducted in Australia, a truly global experience.

    Cons

    Fortunes pivot on commodity prices. If steel, copper, coal, etc. tank, the Company suffers.
    Ruins the environment. Mountains disappear when they begin mining
