    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Rio Tinto full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Safety is considered vital. Has good processes and systems. Quite lean in organization structure for site technical services. Some good bunch of people who have been with company for quite long, who actually do the hard yards

    Cons

    Very little scope for employee development. Poor people management resulting in company losing very good engineers. Managers don't really groom and promote the deserving and hard working engineers. Not a thriving working culture where employees feel empowered. So many new Perth based teams with many overlapping roles and very hard to know who is doing what.

    Advice to Management

    Need to pay attention to improving employee working experience and culture
