I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

I have worked for BMA (BHPBILLITON) since 2002. I have been a wages employee and a Staff employee since then. The remuneration is excellent. The bonus system is excellent. The employee share system is excellent. The education system they run is excellent. The support that is given to employees for the establishment of innovation is world class.
When you take holidays into account I only spend less than 5 months of the year in the mine area with half of that at work.

Cons

Some personnel have never actually worked outside the mining industry and thus have no idea what it is like to work in the real world. This unfortunately skews their reality and affects the experiences they encounter.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop making it so easy for employees to unload their responsibilities. Hold all employees at all levels and affiliations to account for their actions or their lack of accomplishment to improve the depth and character of the team.

    I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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