    I worked at BHP Billiton full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Just promoted 3 women into executive roles. Half the reports to the CEO are women. BHP appears to be making good progress on the diversity and gender equality fronts.

    Cons

    The capable, proactive, and smart women in the middle of the Petroleum organization were pushed to Shale, then flushed out of the company. The problem remains. Women are treated poorly. The male team leaders feel empowered to be jerks and blackball women, especially those with an opinion and don’t suck up. It’s still a Old Boys club, and where it’s progressed on diversity the men who are gay or from outside the US are...

    Advice to Management

    The CEO visited petroleum recently to get to the bottom of why his diversity numbers tanked. A good start, but Andrew won’t get the full picture unless he talks to the people who were pushed out. His remaining team is full of manipulative people.

    Pros

    Great benefits, work/life balance, and compensation. Beautiful new office building. New gym that’s very clean and free for employees. Wonderful people.

    Cons

    Management decisions are questionable. Morale isn’t great due ton shale sale. They don’t treat employees equally/fairly, so if you’re not a “golden child”, it’s hard to move up or get the opportunity/compensation you deserve.
