    I worked at BHP Billiton full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some great opportunities for professionals such as Engineers working in their discipline. Good level of remuneration and benefits such as the share scheme. Able to achieve high performance even though they seem to carry a significant amount of dead wood being propped up by bigots maintaining their ‘purple circles’.

    Cons

    Too many graduates being promoted into leadership positions with no life experience. Unrealistic diversity quotas being pushed onto the Managers and Superintendents. Too many institutionalised employees without experience outside the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and keep paying me my dividends.
