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

    Pros

    above average benefits for now. van pool is paid by the company, but it is not easy to do because of so many meetings and late hours you have to work. It was not easy to start a van pool.

    Cons

    very slow process for almost everything; need approval for almost anything. computer network has been so slow that you cannot really do much serious seismic work; micromanaged; single minded, very little lateral collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    simplify the process, rule, and empower your people before they leave.
