Hopefully things are changing now that the new CEO is in charge, but lots of old timers still remain.

I worked at Newmont Mining

Pros

As one of the industry leaders in gold mining Newmont leads in environmental/health/safety issues. I enjoyed travelling around the world to the different sites. The science of gold mining is fascinating in and of itself, but the benefits of salary, generous 401k, stock, and pension all added to that 'shine'.

Cons

It is a good old boys club. It has always been about who you know. Additionally, the culture is short sighted - 'if you are not moving dirt, you're not adding value.'

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dick O'Brien seems to be level headed and intent on changing the direction of the company. This review was based largely on the organization prior to his lead. Communicating vision and strategies to lower level employees is key to keeping everyone rowing in the same direction though.
