Very good company
Operations - Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Yellowknife, NT10 June 2017
Management and operations were very helpful and accommodating for QC testing. The only limitation was what you would be willing to do, or learn, on site. Overall the people on site, at all levels, were a lot of fun to work with.

Je suis retraité. J'ai vécu dans une entreprise où l'on reconnaissait la personne avec toute sa valeur. Pour ce qui est de RioTinto, je ne puis donner un avis sauf car j'y ai travaillé pour une très courte durée à titre de consultant.

It is a great place to work, but like many large corporations, you are just a number, and sometimes your number comes up. I would go back in a heart beat if asked.

Discrimination against non-Quebec born employees
Sourcing/Procurement Analyst (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC30 December 2016
Excellent company to work, however, in Quebec the meddle to low management is extremely racist and protective against non-Quebec born employees. Even highly qualified professionals born outside of Quebec will have very low chances to grow in the company and will have difficulties to be hired and maintained in their positions.
Pros
Highly competitive salaries
Cons
Prejudice against non Quebec born professionals
