Featured Review

Former Employee - Principal Risk Business Partner

I worked at BHP full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Development goals were always supported, great pay and benefits

Cons

Their diversity agenda is discrimination. They seek equality of outcome, not equality of opportunity.

Advice to Management

Get people onto the mine sites more. Most functional people have no idea what actually happens on the mine site. Invest in a couple of site visits per year for functions staff, send them underground... and into the plant to see what the real business is.
