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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and fair wages. Offices were some of the best in town.

    Cons

    Hive mentality, closed all satellite offices that were acquired from another company acquisition, shipped all the jobs to Houston to a single headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    Think twice next time about consolidating and centralizing when you have excellent skilled workers who will not move to another city. We live in a modern world where people can work from anywhere and still do an excellent job.

    I worked at BHP Billiton full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are nice, except when you consider the work environment. Those are the only pros I can think of.

    Cons

    Micro Managed. I worked for a Tulsa company that they took over. Many promises made, none of them kept. The more I hear from fellow employees that did make the move the happier I am I did not. They try to run every aspect of your life, I was shocked how invasive they were trying to get. Everything you read in these reviews about politics over substance is very very true!

    Advice to Management

    Relax a little, keep promises made to employees...even newly acquired employees. things would run smoother if people didn't have to go all the way up the food chain for the little things.
