Pros

Employee benefits are amazing - 16 weeks paid maternity leave in addition to the gov't scheme, subsidised private health, very generous annual training budget and possibility of jobs worldwide.

Cons

Very conservative culture with lots of red tape and a seemingly anti-innovation sentiment that contradicts the advertised company values. It's very rare to be promoted internally, most employees that are have left and come back a few years later in higher positions.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Cyclical. Hire and lay off. Repeat.

    Advice to Management

    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.

    Pros

    Solid work group. Good work ethics

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    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.
