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

Pros

Very stable company not likely to be aquired. Better than average benefits. Good salaries and bonuses. In general, very good employees

Cons

Senior managment micro manages the organization. Fun is discouraged. Centralized SAP environment is very difficult to deal with and often makes our jobs much more difficult than necessary.

Advice to Management

More fun. More autonomy. Set the direction and then let people achieve it.

    I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits
    Great Salary if you are looking for a promotion of epic proportion
    9/80 work schedule
    $2/day lunch in the main building cafeteria

    Cons

    You work on stuff, but cannot take the work with you if you leave (no flash drives or emailing stuff to yourself)
    Big Brother is watching everything
    Like working for the government
    AMEX Corporate Card will be denied if you have so-so or crappy credit; you will have to get your supervisor to pick up your expenses (very ridiculous)
    New floor model is cubicles for everyone, only managers are in offices
    Most employees belong to cliques' just like High School (corporate office)
    Procedures to accomplish work on a daily basis are very vague, complex, confusing and not very consistent.
    Idiots for managers at times, just depends on your business division and area

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on the strict policies, stop running the company like summer camp or reform school. Push for more advertising so that people don't confuse the company with BP.
