Anyone would care to chime in with a prediction about potential BHP Billiton layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
I'm just sorry I wasted time in this company. Can only blame myself though. I'm probably not the only one who feels that way - staying here much longer than one should? I hope others were able to find much better jobs. It took me a long time to find... — read more

Do you think BHP is prepping for a complete sale of their petroleum assets?
Last week's layoffs came as a shock to many and now I'm having trouble relaxing and believing it's over. I wish there was a way for us to know for sure it's done, but since I no longer trust anything our leadership says or does, I don't think that's... — read more
I have never been so embarrassed to be part of an organization as poor as this. The org chart to be shared on Tuesday is an embarrassment, no other O&G operator would allow such nonsense. Great knowledgeable talent will be cut for the sake of... — read more

The rumour is 40% of Petroleum staff will be made “redundant” within the next couple of months with the divestiture. Leadership is being as transparent as possible, but it’s still not easy waiting for the inevitable. The Aussies don’t have much to... — read more
So much unnecessary work is being done every single day for some unknown reason. We can't get back to our own work during the review period due to the endless stream of questions and requests for additional reports, tie-outs and various checks. We... — read more
if we thought bhp was bad before, now that it's planning to exit shale it's become ten times worse... work environment is simply unbearable... nobody is certain about their futures... nobody knows if they'll be here tomorrow... only think management... — read more
I'm so tired of blatant favoritism and nepotism here. hard workers are rarely if ever recognized for their contributions, while people who are mediocre at best get frequent praise and are promoted over the better workers on regular bases. It's all... — read more
BHP Billiton used to be an amazing company to work for, but that has changed drastically. While pay and bonuses are great here, they will expect the impossible from you. We are chronically overworked, our lives have turned into a never-ending cycle... — read more
I know this isn't the right place to be asking, but what type of prr-employment drug test does BHP administer? Urine? Hair? Thank you.
Bhp talks a lot about safety in all of the useless meetings. But, when it comes down to it, most of it is just talks. That way if something safety related happens they can say it's your fault. Relieves them of fault. This happens all the way up to... — read more
Ever since the last round of layoffs I feel like I have no job security. I'm just an end to a means and can be sacked regardless of how hard I work or how much I contribute. When will this madness ever end???

It looked like a normal clothing hook -- small and unsuspecting, mounted on the back door of her sleeping quarters on the Transocean Deepwater oil rig. But to her, for some reason it just didn't feel right. "The rooms are pretty bare and minimum, so... — read more

Transformation looms near. The support groups got theirs; maybe 10-12%. Now it's geoscience's turn. Scheduled for the first week in March.
Our cuts in 2016 will be also very spectacular - check out Anglo's board here at &anglo-american-plc
The management might see this as an opportunity to get rid of under performers, save money for the company and give themselves huge raises and bonuses.
Short straws? 10% of Houston Petroleum staff?
I heard rumors, anyone from BHP has more info here?
