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.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Rio is a good corporate citizen, locally and globally. They invest heavily on best practices and that makes for a well rounded employee.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance. Period. Expectations are un-realistic and local management is arrogant and has a bullying mentality, especially with the local mine, Kennecott Utah Copper. They treat their vendors and contractors like second class citizens.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves.


  2. "All of Purchasing will be eliminated with Bruckner Supply outsourcing within 24 months."

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits and it's a very prestigious company to work for and be proud of affiliation.

    Cons

    Work is divided up and spread throughout too many departments which makes each department a dead end without advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Annual reviews shouldn't be based on global criteria that has little relevance to every position, location or actual work required.
