I have been working at Rio Tinto full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great benefits, decent pay, great vision from upper management, great support from upper management.

Cons

Mid-level managers are inept and have been placed in their position, no job specific training at all, ran on tribal knowledge at the mid-level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide MUCH needed coaching and training to mid-level managers.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere
    Good pay
    Great benefits
    Friendly employees
    Guaranteed salary increases so long as you're working hard
    Great place to advance a career in management

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy, it can sometimes be difficult to figure out who to get in touch with regarding questions you may have about something.

    Can be hard to advance in your career in something other than management as they have entry-level positions that dead-end after only a couple advances.

    Very large company, you often don't know who anyone is above your direct supervisor.

    Rio's overall compensation package is well above average, but you work very hard for every single penny.

    I have been working at Rio Tinto

    Pros

    Rio is a good corporate citizen, locally and globally. They invest heavily on best practices and that makes for a well rounded employee.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance. Period. Expectations are un-realistic and local management is arrogant and has a bullying mentality, especially with the local mine, Kennecott Utah Copper. They treat their vendors and contractors like second class citizens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get over yourselves.
