Company Culture

Very good at talking the talk, epic fail at living it

Support from management

The current air of desperation has lead to management by reaction instead of proactive planning.

Teamwork

Internal teams work very well together but competition between other teams can get destructive and leadership does not intervene well.

Freedom to work independently

Previously there was a lot of autonomy and empowerment for decision making, as the environment has become more desperate the control has increased.

Internal Communication

Overabundance of relevant and irrelevant communication, can be difficult to determine what is important.

Gender Equality

Rio does pretty well here, women are well represented in management and operations with an internal women's network

Attitude towards older colleagues

Long term workers are an endangered species, people with too much knowledge of how things should work are labeled as resistant to change

Career Development

Very political, very much who you know rather then what you know

Overall compensation for your work

Very good pay and benefits

Office / Work Environment

Not bad for a cube farm

Environmental Friendliness

Again, very good at the talk, not so much the walk

Work-Life Balance

While flexibility is a plus employees in key positions are expected to be available at any and all times

Company Image

Very focused on perception is reality and molding the narrative

Job Security

This particular location is suffering from the perfect storm of bad luck, if they can hold on for another 18-24 months job security could improve

Workplace Safety

The last area of empowerment for employees, anyone can stop a job if they see a safety issue and are encouraged to do so.

Challenging Work

The work itself is challenging and interesting, doesn't get boring

Inclusive / Diverse

Global organization is well represented

Suggestions for improvement

  • Go back to empowering employees based on their knowledge and experience, let them do what they do best.

What I like about the company

Competitive pay and benefits, flexible work schedules and telecommuting options in bad weather

What I dislike about the company

The core culture of the company has become fractured with an air of desperation. Not the first time for difficult commodity pricing but it is the first time it has become a dog eat dog environment and a reliance on situational ethics.

Application questions

  • What was the result of the online evaluation Completed a week ago. For Maintenance Systems Specialist? What is the status of the pending Asset Manager application hic has been under review or more than 6 months?

Comment

I also have a pending Asset Manager application.
The problem with Rio Tinto is they take forever to contact or reject a candidate. My pending application was submitted more than 6 months ago. They should communicate better with candidates.

As a recruiter it would have been nice to get an acknowledgement and status of my application. I would be very excited to interview and have an opportunity to work for Rio Tinto.
