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

    Pros

    So RIO is an amazing company with amazing culture and with full of people who respect and value other's time. Company cares a lot about wellness, security and work life balance. Lot has been done, lot could be done and tremendous scope of growth. Fairly good chances are given to internal candidates for vertical and horizontal growth. All in all , keeping senior management aside ( the one who tend to make operating... plans/ strategy ) , its by far the best in its cadre

    Cons

    Indecisive management, too much changes in operating plans and strategy. They might hire you for one role and may scrap that role in the next month. You can be laid off anytime. Absolutely ruthless when it comes to job security. You cannot plan a career with RIO irrespective of the fact that you have spend 15 years in this company. You can be and you will be laid off anytime.

    Advice to Management

    work life balance isnt the only thing anybody looks for. I am surprised to see why management cant decide on how it wants to operate? Have you ever heard of 5 year growth plans and strategies? For god sake , study gartner's , try top consulting firms for your growth strategies and follow the best
