Former Employee - Intern in Houston, TX

I worked at BHP Billiton

Pros

Great pay and benefits for undergraduates/graduate students--well beyond what other majors offer.
Very lean groups meaning you'll have lots of interaction with senior management and other personnel.
Newly renovated office building is nice to work in
Very bright and talented employees--pound per pound they can hang with the majors.

Cons

Traffic can be horrible in Houston (offices located in Galleria area)
Difficult to get recruited and convert job offers
Stratified and difficult to move from one functional group to another.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great leadership within the Petroleum department--management are technically sound and listen to employees. Management is composed of VPs and other seniors from the major oil companies.

    Pros

    Great Company in terms of financial stability, benefits, and work life balance.

    The 401K match is probably the best out there.

    Cons

    You have to network and be in a visible position by upper management in order to get promoted. Promotions are handed out to people that network really well and not neccessarily abilities to do the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people who can do the job not just who you like.

    I have been working at BHP Billiton

    Pros

    The best reasons for working at BHP is the pay and benefits. They will pay you well and give very good annual bonuses, good salary, stock purchase plan, and you are vested from day one.

    Cons

    The downside is they do not like to give up people to other group for advancement they would rather fill the job with an external candidate so that make very challenging to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow people to advance through the organization and that way you will retain your best talent.
