The appeal of Gold

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

ProsI found the company pays quite well and most of the employees recognized and appreciated this.
A lot of international exposure for the Head Office employees.
Great company to have on your resume.

ConsHighly political environment at the head office due to Barrick's weird corporate structure with a large head office and large regional offices.
Work life balance is way off in some departments
Some roles have too much travel involved.

Advice to Senior ManagementSteps need to be taken to change the 'me' culture at the head office. Too often the loudest voice wins rather than the correct voice.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
