I have been working at Kinross Gold

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 ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Kinross Gold

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 have been working at Kinross Gold full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits can't be beat. Very competitive retirement. Rural living in rugged & beautiful country, 'big city' pay without the big city hastles. This company does not want to lose it's biggest asset (labor force) and stays competitive when it comes to 'perks'. When layoffs occur they started at the top (corporate office), as opposed to the bottom.

    Cons

    As with any publicly traded business, the bottom line is what matters. The pace can be grueling and the stress level is always high - proessional staff must fight for and guard personal time; taking time to rest is a discipline that must be practised. Environmental regulations are insane (in Washington State anyway). Job longevity is limited due to the finite nature of ore, and the near prohibition state/federal regulations have placed on exploration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your workforce. We know you by what you do, not by what you say.
