    I worked at BHP Billiton full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It is a company with great benefits; Family oriented and have good structure.

    Cons

    Very "relationship" based - even if you dont have the experience, qualification etc, you will get the job if you know the right person.
    Top down instruction and leave no rooms for being vocal

    Advice to Management

    Listen to lower and middle management, they may have ideas that are beyond your imagination.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at BHP Billiton as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good above averae salary
    Large company so diverse opportunities

    Cons

    Can be very bureaucratic
    Group IM has become very aggressive towards people & suppliers
    Bullying has become prevalent with culture of antagonism and fear.
    A lot of negative pressure on employees
    You are expected to conform and not speak out
    Expected to work all hours and poor life/work balance

    Advice to Management

    The charter is great on paper but it has to be practised & not preached particularly with the aspect of respect.
    Bullying has to be stamped out and people treated with respect. Controlling people with intimidation and fear must be stamped out. It will lead to safety breaches of the charter.
