    I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice facilities. Upgrades from old buildings, more collaboration and easier to find meeting rooms. Nice cafe, gym, and coffee bar.

    Cons

    Another reorganization again. Everyone on edge. Low confidence of leaders having expertise in the areas they lead. Sad thing is they don’t realize it.

    Advice to Management

    After this reorg, buckle down and get it right. Too much pussyfooting for too long. Get serious about changing out bad leaders.

    I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time

    Pros

    Their flex work schedule and the personal care the company gives. They also have funding from the mining business that helps petroleum employees to grow their business.

    Cons

    The way the company is structured. It doesn’t seem like it as efficient as it could be. It makes it hard to get decisions made.
