    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Rio Tinto

    Pros

    The pay / lack of oversight

    Cons

    The culture is really awful here. The people are some of the most abrasive I have ever worked with. The higher-paid leaders really don't add any value to the company. They suggest ideas without any knowledge of what's actually going on at the mine, production and shipping plants. The people who work in the plants don't have any motivation to work harder, because they see the laziness that comes from the top down. The union culture is hard. If you can get an internship elsewhere, I suggest looking elsewhere.

    Former Employee - Chemical Engineer Intern in Magna, UT

    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Well run company, I thought their meetings were set up efficiently. Excellent safety culture. Good opportunity to work with other engineers, interns and operators. Most interns had interesting projects to work on as well.

    Cons

    Lower compensation for chemical engineers than most other companies in Utah. Limited opportunites for process engineering type positions outside of Utah. The company is mostly a mining company not a processing company. Very volatile industry. Lots of layoffs just in the 3 months I was there.
