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

    Pros

    Good exposure, Great benefits, Encouraging, Interesting and good grounds for assertiveness training

    Cons

    Manager loves to Sugar Coat issues and make unfair decisions to please upper management. Personnel with Form But No Substance is promoted and her laziness is tolerated. Please tell the truth and be a responsible manager to SUPPORT your team, if somebody cannot do the job, please don't choose her to please the management. The Best
    Woman or Man who has the best skills should be given opportunity irregardless of titles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your managers and stop listening to sugar coated words. Laziness of any employees is clearly evident already. Probe deeper and you can unravel the truth.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Melbourne (Australia)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Melbourne (Australia)

    I worked at BHP Billiton full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The salary is good.
    It is alleged the biggest mining company.

    Cons

    A text book example of bureaucracy, office politics, dysfunctional communication, and operational inefficiency.

    Talk the talk of walk the talk, but never walk.

    Condescending attitude from HR and middle management, dictating from senior management.

    Ridiculous "clean office" policy, yet heard multiple times staffs who privately complain it talk about how good it is in office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do the opposite of what Marius did.
