Approves of CEO

I worked at BHP Billiton full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Really good keeping people satisfied at work and permanent motivation. Salaries are the best of the country and everyone knows it. There is real opportunities to work abroad trough the company and also go up to a management level

Cons

Mining locations are far from good cities. When you are alone / single it's ok, but when you have a family, it is complicated the shift-life vs family time. If you are ok seeing your family 3 days a week only, go for it, but I got tired of it

Advice to Management

Promote family friendly work place

    I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time

    Pros

    Great exposure and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Difficult to move internally in Singapore office as chances is always given to expatriates.
    Even if an existing employee is equipped with similar experiences, somehow the HR VP approved to source externally for the best fit.
    Promote or transfer an individual with no substance but excel in public relation.

    Advice to Management

    Please refer to CONS stated above and do something about it.
