Graet pay and benifits. The job itself and managers are great.Some concern to be laid off.
Mine operator/Laborer (Current Employee), Boron, CAMarch 22, 2014
Pros: we are payed very well and taken care of by the company
Cons: fear of being laid off
A typical day at work would be clocking in and having a team meeting with the manger with him or her telling us what we are going to do. Also talking about any safety hazards that might be present. Then we would be taken to are equipment and haul lots of material. The management are very helpful and want us all to remain safe.

Uncertain work environment due to constant downsizing / outsourcing
Capability Development Manager (Former Employee), SingaporeMarch 11, 2014
I enjoyed my time with Rio Tinto but the current climate is driven by uncertainty given recent internal reviews, changes in strategy, and outsourcing that has people more concerned about job security. These changes have typically been delivered poorly and highlight a lack of quality leadership.

Global Company with a big reputation (unjustified)
Team Leader/ Mobile Plant Operator/ Trainer (Current Employee), WAFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: lifelong friendships developed
Cons: the culture being nurtured by the majority of management personel
Workmates respect for one and other is predominately evident on a daily basis, with a willingness to learn exhibited by those less experienced matched by gratuitous mentor-ship from the more well traveled.
Unfortunately this free exchange is not matched or even aspired to by the 'leadership" groups that I have encountered.
