Good Company - Tough Times

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

One of few Fortune 500 companies who Denver that offers global, corporate experience

Investor Relations Manager (Current Employee)
Englewood, CO

I have been working at Newmont Mining full-time for more than 5 years

ProsOffice culture has shifted from mining veterans to young, high caliber people that creates a collegial atmosphere. Great opportunity to work across functions at Corporate and gain experience with the option to travel worldwide and for expat placement.

ConsLimited work-life balance and political power plays are common.

Advice to Senior ManagementOffer excellent pay and benefits, which some refer to as golden handcuffs. They should take a note from Netflix on people management to retain top employees and eliminate mediocrity.
