I have been working at Rio Tinto full-time for 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.

    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.

    I have been working at Rio Tinto

    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.
