    I have been working at Rio Tinto for less than a year

    Pros

    Global organisation. Exciting technology in mining. Great people to work with, lots of collaboration. Constant change which exciting. Salaries are competitive and a great health and share purchase scheme.

    Cons

    Pace of change can be scary at times, but makes it exciting and challenging. The global nature is a positive but can make connecting more difficult

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Rio Tinto for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Exciting and challenging work. Every day is different. The processes and scale of work is unlike any other.

    Cons

    Outlook through 2017 is very poor. OPEX and CAPEX budgets have been cut so much that it is hard for the plants to get by. There is not that much confidence in the air with employees. Projects are limited and not looking to be any better in the next couple years.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting back on skilled, experienced engineers and project managers for cheaper, inexperienced options. Even in the darkest of times, the best people should be managing project, operations, and maintenance. The company has become 95% cost savings driven, and they have lost the old backbone that was once driven by quality.

    I worked at Rio Tinto full-time

    Pros

    Interesting work, smart people. Lots of resources available to do your job, including the ability to collaborate with your colleagues in other BU's in other parts of the world.

    Cons

    Cost cutting is a new way of life, like in most other mining companies, since the Global Economic Crisis in 2008. The BU is not strategic to the corporation, which is quite obvious in how the location is treated by the Rio Tinto headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the morale (employees have been negatively affected by the uncertainty for too long).

    I have been working at Rio Tinto

    Pros

    Alcan was a great place to work before it was taken over by Rio Tinto. People there were very friendly and helpful and there are a lot of team work. Sometimes, there are some office politics, but I don't believe it is worst than any other places that I worked previously. It is a very multi-cultural place to be and they are very high on family and life-work balance.

    Cons

    Because of the take-over and the economic crisis, there has been a lot of uncertainty in the Alcan group. A lot of people have left the company or is planning to leave. Sometimes, the pace is a bit slow. There are a lot of employees who have been with the company for a long time.
