Management is always rotating and creates stress down to the floor. Lots of pressure to perform. RioTinto like their numbers. Very good team. Development schooling is great. Pay and benefits are some what competitive. Rio Tinto Alcan would be an excellent place to work for Unionized. Lower staff is not recognized.
Pros
Stable work, great people
Cons
Poor work life balance

Job security is one reason I was employed with Rio tinto for so long, how ever what started out as a family friendly business slowly turned into a more ruthless approach towards its employees, with management refusing to make a decision on certain issues and using HR as mechanism to get their desired outcome with sometimes detrimental effects on the employees, technological advancements saw a large up skill of employees which sets people up for a changing future in the
Pros
Ok money, secure, up skilled
Cons
Lowest paying in mining giants, and not family friendly.

My team are nice to work with. Some of the team work harder than others. But I have found that in every Office that I have worked. There is always a select few that go above and beyond.

Rio Tinto is slow in the pass out process on machines and some of the material is not easy to decipher . An RPL does not mean anything to them even when you give them proof of prior operation and provide skill tickets . Their processes are rediculous.

Bad management. Self indulgent. Only looking out for friends and relatives.
Nepotism rife. If you have a relative who works there you have a 100 percent chance of getting a job. If not, bad luck, You need to submit a formal resume' endure long interviews to prove your worth and then maybe you get an opportunity to get the job. Unlike the nepo's. they just walk in without any prior knowledge or experience and get the job.

Pros
fly out day
Cons

Uneori, depinzand de locul de munca, unele zile pot fi mai incarcate decat altele, dar asta e partea care face viata mai interesanta.
Eu nu sunt angajat permanenet ci pe contract, nu am beneficiile unui angajat, dar relatiile interpersonale nu tin cont de asta. Toata lumea trateaza cu respect, profesional si in mod civilizat. In tot ceea ce facem, safety e pe primul loc, in office si in the field. Avem team building, activitati sponsorizate de companie unde ne intalnim si cu alti angajati cu care nu lucram in mod direct. Acum, cu Covid-19, compania a aratat multa flexibilitate si a tinut pe aproape toata lumea sa lucreze de acasa. Nu a concediat pe nimeni. Acum, partial ne intoarcem la office, dar unii inca lucram de acasa.
Pros
Atmosfer buna si oameni de treaba
Cons
Nu prea ai unde sa mananci ca s-a inchis cafeteria.

Working at Rio Tinto, Bundoora was an incredibly fast-paced ordeal with 60-hour weeks, but it was also a highly rewarding role where all team members were constantly updated on the progress of the project and how their efforts were being well-received. Staff morale was also very high because everyone was encouraged to look out for each other's mental and physical well-being.

Overall, it was not a role for the faint-hearted, but it was one I would recommend to an ambitious graduate seeking a fresh start in a chemical engineering role.

Not a good company to work for. Even worse if you're a female. The culture in some areas is the worst I have ever endured. Don't get me wrong, there are some great people there but there are far too many 'old school boys' still there who are more in 'protect their job' mode than want to do the right thing. HR will listen but does nothing.

If you want to do the right thing and wanted to be treated fairly, this is not the company for you. Some of the behaviours I have seen towards colleagues is disgraceful. Persistent bullying and discrimination. If someone wants to go after you, they can all will only stop when you leave.
