Pros

Very good benefits. Pay is amazing if you're in a management role, otherwise it is a little higher than market.

Cons

The corporate structure is quite bureaucratic: there are a lot of check boxes to fill, but otherwise leaders don't do anything. If you are applying for a managerial role and you are lazy, this is the perfect place for you. You can sit back, not care about your company or your people, and as long as you stick around, you'll keep moving up and making more money.

If you're starting from the bottom, driven and hard working with the thought that it will take you places, it won't. Expect to be taken advantage of without an awesome bonus that all the lazy people around you get to enjoy. The only thing that is rewarded is time; all that matters is how long you have been with the company, not what you contribute. So stop caring, sit back, and let yourself waste away and you'll do great!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep praying that US Borax doesn't get divested because you'll never be able to replace your pay with the lack of skills you possess.

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

    Pros

    I received excellent experience working in HR. I learned more than I did with any other company and had a variety of responsibilities.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is wasteful with resources and office workers are set up to fail. Too much work is piled on each person's shoulders. Global strategy hurts regions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give each region (sometimes country) its own power to customize strategy to what works for them.
