    I worked at Barrick Gold as an intern

    Pros

    Great people in Operations, Tech Services, Maintenance, awesome pay for interns, and free housing. Truly a wonderful learning opportunity; I was able to spend time learning from every department on site.

    The focus on safety may seem constraining at first, but "Everyone going home safe and healthy every day" is worth it.

    Cons

    The only con's I can think of would be the early wakeup time since I'm not a morning person, but the pay and opportunities to learn and grow outweigh that by miles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look within for areas of improvement. Current employees are knowledgeable.
