    Former Employee - Senior Advisor in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good Compensation, Medical Benefits and Leave Policy

    Cons

    Effective 19th August, they have fired their entire Procurement Team and Logistic team citing the same old reason of change in strategy and moving resources closer to assets. Every year, they run a redundancy program. The retrenchments are neither performance related nor Covid induced. It is just a decision taken by bosses in London and Brisbane , and your career is gone. If you are contemplating joining the company, do it at your own peril. There is every chance , that within an year you would be out of work.
