Great People

Excellent people to work with. Great work life balance with the ability to easily work from home regularly. Difficult to move things forward due to constant restructuring.

Progressive leadership with culture of care for its people, but transformation is painful

Prior to transformation, there was a strong culture of collaboration to achieve the best outcome for the company with dedicated and engaged global team. Couple with strong executive leadership that supports mental wellness, work-life balance with progressive and trusted relationships. Post transformation is challenging due to decentralisation of operating model with keen focus to improve customer-centricity and agility by co-locating Functions with operating assets. Increased focus on respect, culture of care and mental wellness is nurtured during this difficult transition period.

Cultured employees, office hours

Good work life balance

Very good workplace culture that promotes quality of life. Learnt how to muti-task and very receptive towards any change. Hardest part is to throw away your work over-night due to redundancy.

Pros

Good work hours

Cons

Harsh treatment during tough times

Step up in every role

It seems like job rotation can always be challenging task especially when you are familiar with the roles that you are in and you can be rather complacent to moved on. However, when opportunity comes your way, we need to stand up and take on new challenges ahead. We need to have an opened mind. We should continue to be ready for new challenges and tasks and never stop asking.

Pros

Value added to your continous learning

Cons

Steep learning curve

Senior management has disempowered people to do their jobs properly. Very weak management.

At a marketing level is too restrictive and people spend too much time following useless repetitive protocol rather than being in the market creating value for shareholders. All for risk based approach however as per typical BHP fashion they have knee-jerk reactions to everything. Very very weak management and in most cases not skilled to be leaders int the industry. BHP have no idea how to manage people or inspire and cultivate their teams. One of the worst companies I have worked for. Such a shame because long long ago they were a great company to work for.

Pros

wages

Cons

management, culture, lack of common sense, poor trading practices, lack of mentorship and global leaders to build competitive teams, knee jerk reactions from safety to commercial issues

Work life balance and loads of experience

BHP is one of the biggest MNC. It has everything that makes an employee comfortable no matter how tough and stressful the work gets. We get work with all sorts of characters and colleagues from different cultures and background. We learned how to communicate with different individuals from different countries. Management is very supportive and gives opportunities to individuals to cross over to another department for a few months just to get more experience and have a feel what other departments are doing. Colleagues get along very well and we brainstorm new ideas and suggestions if there is a need. We have a half an hour meet up daily with our boss to express any concerns or to share a new thing we have experience. The hardest part of the job is actually the time difference we have with the other countries, as we need to step in the office as early as 5 in the morning or take a midnight call. The most enjoyable part of the job is everything!

Pros

flexi hours, free breakfast, family day, frequent events, birthday celebrations, festive celebrations

Cons

time difference with other countries

Highly rewarding work culture

BHP Billiton is a great place to begin your career or as an experienced hire to join in. There are plenty of opportunities to grow and the people in there are very caring and supportive. Simplicity is the motto of this company without forsaking any safety, regulatory or health measures. As an Independent Contractor, I had all the benefits of working and exercising my control on the domain I specialised.

Pros

Mostly everything

Cons

Rates dropped!

Good company

Overall my experience at BHP Billiton has been excellent. I loved working there. Alot of opportunities worldwide and such a vast amount of cultures and diversity to deal and work with. You have to work hard, but this is rewarded with very good bonuses and salary increases. Some managers and leadership where a challenge to work with, but if you are focussed then this can be dealt with.

Pros

Share options

Cons

Leadership dept

BHP Billiton

Worked with a good client team who was very supportive and got the implementation of SAP security roles and GRC implementation from the scratch. This experience leveraged the foundation and have taught a lot in terms of technical development.

World class org basically a mining corp

World class Australian based mining and resources org. You better like travel. This is basically a mining company, they think, act and react like a mining company even in IT. The company is very subject to current market demands for resources.

Pros

World Class international org

Cons

Not based in US and not a big presence in the US

Productive work place

Typical day to day as MDO is governance and compliance to our standards before adding a vendor into the system. As a Team Administrator - everyday is a surprise, different jobs and different priorities, make the job fun. I look forward to going to work daily.

Pros

Work Life Balance depending on the department you work for.

Cons

Difficulty to move within the company as most management wants someone with experience, no room for learning new skills.
