Cons

A handful of managers are not good at their jobs, but remain in their positions; no follow up on one reported incident of abuse from a manager

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

    Pros

    brilliant people who are frustrated trying to contribute

    Cons

    overly political behavior and lack of active, aligned leadership starting from; decisions seemingly at random and not well thought through

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop trying to globalize the organization and exercise some leadership, starting with ExCo. Stabilize the operations vs. constant reorganization; step up to the senior leaders who are ineffective but politically connected--figure out how to stop "yo-yo" edits and actually follow through on something.

    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.
