    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at BHP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    So much opportunity, very well paid and an overall positive culture in regards to people, flexibility and safety. Leadership at the top is positive and inspiring - which naturally filters down to most departments though I can't speak for them all.

    Cons

    Good people get overworked. Overall under-resourced on site based professional jobs all in order to reduce cost per tonne. So makes sense but hard on anyone trying to achieve work life balance - you end up living and breathing your work.
