I have been working at Rio Tinto full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Excellent work/life balance
Great benefits
Reasonable commute
Awesome co-workers

Cons

Constant organizational change
Global managers that cannot manage
"Golden Handcuffs" keep people captive (also can be a pro)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The constant organizational change in the IT department is dizzying. Every time things start to stabilize with a possibility of improving, someone new comes in to shake things up. The IT side needs to decide if they want to compete against IT only organizations or realize they are part of a mining company and focus on serving who our customers are rather than acting like a public IT organization.
