    I worked at BHP Billiton for more than a year

    Pros

    Value based company - employees lives its values each day (noting that like anywhere there are times where these can take a backseat) REM - remuneration is above market rates and generous Scale of operations - unparalleled in resources and gives you the opportunity to work on the biggest projects and mine sites Diversity of opportunities - the scale of BHP means there is always a new place and function to explore...

    Cons

    - Limited long term career progression for non technical personnel - Potential to be boxed in as an automaton without real consideration for development - Going through a 'cost out' process and roles are consistently being reviewed

    Advice to Management

    Recognise and take advantage of scalability of ideas and processes. The standardisation journey was only partially implemented and there remains much value to be unlocked.

    I worked at BHP Billiton

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay currently but company has been really changing with drop in Oil prices and Global reduction in use of their commodities.

    Cons

    In 2015/2016 with drop in Oil prices and other commodities that BHP deals in there have been many changes to centralize operations to Australia, their Corporate location. I see further reductions and movements coming to standardize and reduce costs in operations. Great company but a sign of the current times. When times get tough, management will tell you one thing but still do whatever action they want to do.
