    I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits second to none and the reason most people hang around, the dictorial leadership have mostly moved out there is a hope the new management can change that image but it will take time and will they have the will power to see it through.
    Some awesome young talent that shines, mostly great people to work alongside

    Cons

    Too much process, lack ofopportunities to progress, if you haven't done it in BHP then it doesn't count, and it doesn't matter if your outside experience is far more extensive than the "BHP People" it still doesnt count. Too many "A" types make it a political cut throat atmosphere for those wanting to get on.
    Some of their managers are poor and have a "me" type attitude and not a supportive and development of teams attitude, this is a shame due to the talent they have available
    The market perception of BHP, they don't pay their vendors, cost driven, talk strategic partnership and relationships but don't walk the talk, hire and fire mentality towards vendor.....

    Advice to Management

    See out the cultural change, open your eyes to the talent you have, both young and old and utilize the experience in house to mentor the amazing young talent, no degree does not mean no use especially with extensive years in industry experience
