    I worked at Rio Tinto full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Reasonable compensation, huge 401k program, ESPP program, nearly annual raises, annual bonuses, interesting work and industry.

    Cons

    Short-sighted management at Rio Tinto. Too many "superstars" are given all the opportunities and are not held accountable for the outcomes of their decisions but are moved on to bigger and better things before they have to face the problem(s).

    Advice to Management

    Stop picking "superstars" based on arbitrary notions and factors and reward the people who really make a difference and bring about positive change and results.

    I worked at Rio Tinto full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    nice friendly co-workers; very diversified workforce. managers are generally forgiving (this could be a con sometimes too. see below).

    Cons

    clumsy culture in terms of operation; transaction cost theory and agency theory work - so unsurprisingly, the best strategy for low-to-middle level employees is to work the minimum - just to meet the threshold.

    Advice to Management

    really needs to emphasize more on the training of middle-level manager

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Rio Tinto full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is very good. On-site gym. They have an extreme effort to promote safety which often hinders productivity.

    Cons

    Archaic systems. Promotions to management or positions within company are not reflective of an individual's skills or knowledge. Often chaotic and knee-jerk management style. No employee training or skill development. Too much communication.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on implementing technology appropriately. Think strategically about where you want the business to go and outline appropriate objectives. Clean house of management and hire knowledgable leaders.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Rio Tinto

    Pros

    Good life/work balance, business class inter-continental travelling

    Cons

    Promotions are based on favoritism, very white Anglo-American culture, no growth opportunities whatsover, no diversity, no creativity, no room for innovation so if you try to bring something new get ready for strong criticism. you know what just don't come here.

    Advice to Management

    You are bad at rewarding right people, you try to promote diversity but do nothing about it. Stop hiring people from outside and invest on your own people. You are exploiting employees and in this market you can, but when things change, you will not find any talent around.
