I worked for Rio Tinto 6 months in Guinea Conakry 2007 as an IT Consultant. Quite truthfully, I have never in my 60 years worked for such a badly organised company. A takeover by BHP would almost certainly inject some management professionalism into Rio. This may be what the existing Rio senior incumbents fear - i.e. they are almost certainly putting their own career over the interests of employees and shareholders. Mr Alex Weir, Harare, Zimbabwe
