Pros: $2 lunch, free coffee, free soda, bonus, 9/80 schedule, medical benefits
Cons: computer equipment outdated, still use blackberry, uncomfortable breakroom
BHPB is a fast growing company and is going through a few growing pains right now. HR department is lagging behind a little due to the growing population. Departments are moving floors every month with all the growth and there are a lot of project improvements in the works.
Hardest part of the job is following direction from multiple supervisors. Supervisors – more... are great, but sometimes the chain of command isn't followed.
Communicating with different people from all walks of life is the best part of my day. My job allows me to walk the building and not sit behind a desk for hours. – less

Condion Monitoring Analyst (Current Employee), Northern Cape , HotazelFebruary 14, 2013
Our management always leads by example.Respect among co-workers is our highest value.A typical day would be like ,safety talk first with the team,get job cards and priotise duties for the day.Report after the day's work back to the supervisor.Hardest part is that you must be able to work under pressure and still deliver.It is always good to look back – more... and see that your hard work had pay off. – less

Administrator (Current Employee), Richards BayJanuary 11, 2013
Pros: team build events
Cons: fast paced moments for days in a row
If I run out of rooms to host either interviews or meetings. I have learnt that working as a team helps not only yourself but the entire organisation. Each and every task an individual has performed well they get an appraisal which boost the self esteem. Acknowledging each employee as your own sister or brother keeps the atmosphere within the department – more... or organisation healthy and always eager to go to work. It is always good to ask questions when you are not clear about something rather than acting as if you know it all. You may never tell what is gonna happen the next day. You might be alone in the office and no one to ask from. It feels great to see the day goes by very smoothly with no hiccups and that smile is written all over your face by the end of the day. In the next meeting you have positive things to tell the team and your manager about that miraculous day! I like it. – less

Senior HR Specialist (Former Employee), Houston, TXDecember 26, 2012
Pros: pay is good, but after a while, it isn't enough
Cons: highly political environment, "don't trust anyone" mentality
Houston office is very different from other office locations. You will note most of the reviews for the Houston office are lower ratings that the others. I also worked temporarily in several other locations and the Houston office has a negative, overly political, high stress atmosphere unlike the others.
