    I worked at BHP Billiton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The salary and beneifts are above average.

    Cons

    Feckless management (people in positions which they do not have the skills, either technical or managerial, to perfom), total lack of work/life balance, top down management and internal polltics stifling any and all initiatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees to get the job done, where ever they may be in the world. Irrational expectations of face-time with supervisors i.e. sitting in the office from 9-5, especially under heavy global travel schedules, is not a productivity driver. Flexible work arrangements in most workplaces are the norm these days, not the exception.

    World class processes, great place to start a career, 1- 5 years max. Limited room for progression in operations.

    I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benfits
    Solid company with longevity
    Very diversified
    Dedicated President

    Cons

    Narrow minded middle mangement
    HR does not support workers, just another branch of management
    Promotions past senior ops and supervisory levels, very difficult
    Poor work life balance
    Compared to other similar type industries, training is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Harness the skills set of your employees. Become more flexible with lateral movements and encourage cross crafting.
