Pros

Over a billion dollars in cash. International opportunities. Great leadership and culture. Great support functions (HR, Finance, Environmental Affairs, and Safety). Wonderful corporate values. Aggressive growth profile. Fantastic profit margins. Able to manage and control own destiny as there are hundreds of opportunities posted every month internally and externally. Very responsible mining company that truly tries to live its values.

Cons

It is not for the faint of heart. Very fast paced culture. You have to actively manage your life balance or it can start to manage you.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Company has a growing base of properties that have the potential to be world class. Benefits package is excellent compared to anyone in the business. Expences are paid quickly.

    Cons

    HR is terrible. Communication is non-existent. Kinross seems unable to promote from within, thus you doa in the position you start with.

    Advice to Management

    Live the values you made, HR is terrible, thus you dont put people first. As long as the company only spends money to get people in the door, but not once they are in, the company morale will suffer.

    I worked at Kinross Gold full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity for relatively fast growth within the company exists in certain sites due higher turnovers. Management works well for employees career development and provides many training opportunities both on-site and off-site. Strong emphasis on health and safety as well as environmental compliance. The company moves emplyees to other sites for weeks and months at a time for training. Compared to bigger companies, Kinross slightly smaller and employs fewer people which in turn allows for more flexibility when comes to moving people regionally.

    Cons

    Remote locations with little or no city life for most sites except regional offices. Some sites nearing the end of their mine life with not many new sites replacing them.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support employees on their career development.
