I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

diversity and respectful atmosphere, good systems and processes implemented. good knowledge of ore bodies and options to relocate around the world.

Cons

a bit of bureaucracy, implementing change is a bit difficult. Difficult to climb the ladder in via meritocracy, its more about how many years you have rather than how brilliant you are.

Advice to Management

Management should focus more in R&D and Talent identification/management.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on world class projects and in world class operations. Impressing the right people will get you far up the career ladder.

    Cons

    When those people that you impressed leave the organisation your career stagnates. Inflexible working conditions - was forced to cancel my own self-funded study, was given a hard-time for taking time-off to care for my family.

    Advice to Management

    Clear out the long-time dead-wood in middle management.

    Addition of a structured mentoring program for experienced professionals would be great, as alot of these people come out of a variety of industry backgrounds.
