Current Employee - Finance Manager in Houston, TX (US)
Current Employee - Finance Manager in Houston, TX (US)

I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Very stable company not likely to be aquired. Better than average benefits. Good salaries and bonuses. In general, very good employees

Cons

Senior managment micro manages the organization. Fun is discouraged. Centralized SAP environment is very difficult to deal with and often makes our jobs much more difficult than necessary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More fun. More autonomy. Set the direction and then let people achieve it.

    I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Petroleum business unit has significant assets in worldwide locations.

    Cons

    The company's core business competancy is in mining. Sometimes the processes and procedures developed by the corporate office are inflexible and do not allow the petroleum business to operate in a timely and efficient manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spin off the petroleum division.

    Current Employee - Human Resources Professional in Melbourne (Australia)
    Current Employee - Human Resources Professional in Melbourne (Australia)

    I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with intelligent, driven, passionate people. I believe my contributions and hard work are appreciated and I am well compensated for them, I get great satisfaction from seeing the impact of my work. So many opportunities both in Australia and overseas. Our Charter (values) is not just paid lip service but is part of our culture, we are treated with respect and senior management on the whole lead with integrity. Extras on top of good base salary include additional superannuation options, share matching schemes, bonus pool, employee assistance program, parental leave, development opportunities etc.

    Cons

    Conservative culture - slow to make change and adopt new ideas/practices. Size of the organisation means it can take time to get things done. Because so many people are driven to do well in their careers, and so many high performers, there is a tendency to work very hard/ long hours which can be exhausting over prolonged periods of time.
