I have been working at Rio Tinto full-time for less than a year

Pros

The Work is really exciting and adventurous. Good salary. Employee safety is of paramount importance.Read about the policies at the official website. You'll know much better about the company.

Cons

Lots of travelling that you'll get tired of it. The posting is usually in remote locations so forget the 21st century life style and start seeing man vs wild on nat geo. U have to be emotionally very strong to survive in the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shorten the recruitment procedure and send some technically sound people to take interviews who atleast know things else than pumps. (the guy didn't even know what is a pelton turbine)

    I worked at Rio Tinto full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great vacation allotment, based on total years experience, not years with the company.

    Cons

    Cyclical. Hire and lay off. Repeat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rio has some middle management that does not live the company culture. Only give lip service. Pockets of rot can spread throughout if not dealt with.

    I worked at Rio Tinto full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Solid work group. Good work ethics

    Cons

    Very regimental and in many areas, not what you but who you know

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a large amount of local Australian people willing to work for a good company but the thought that only they can get a cheaper option from overseas and they are not ingrained in Aus Standards.
