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 Management

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.
