    Stock based compensation is tricky when your share price is linked somewhat to a commodity - been volatile over the years.

    The organization has room to be leaner or more connected.

    Pros

    Good benefits, stable work environment for the industry.

    Cons

    Management doesn't address the issues in the work place, they ignore it and hope it will go away. Pay not really based on performance. Every hourly employee paid the same for their tech level no matter the type of job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees, if you are losing a lot of employees in a certain field maybe come down and talk to people.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Barrick Gold full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The pay is good, the benefits are decent. If you're Canadian, the growth potential appears limitless.

    Cons

    The mining culture and the Canadian culture are not always in sync. What works in Canada does not always work in other locations around the globe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more globally aware. A requirement for being promoted beyond an analyst should be at least a six-month assignment in another country.
