Pros

Gold mining is currently a high growth industry and all gold minin companies are enjoying tremendous growth. Barrick is also growingby leaps and bounds and is hiring large numbers of people. With high turnover especially for staff with mining expertise, the compensation levels are improving significantly.

Cons

You need to have a very thick skin to work for an employer who pollutes the earth as part of it's core business and is hated by all environmentalists and locals where it has it's mines. It is a cyclical industry with sharp upturns and downturns.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to promote from within and stop ignoring employees who are not well connected.

    Driving to the various mine sites throughout the area can take a long time. Housing and rent can be expensive living in some of the areas.

    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.
