    I found Newmont to be old school and at times extremely disfunctional.

    I have been working at Newmont Mining full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are some really smart, good people at Newmont. You get to do some cool potential travel and the pay is about 30% above market..

    Cons

    Very slow, old school, old boy culture. Hard to make decisions and get work done. Salary and benefits are set up as "golden handcuffs" -- stock options vest over three years, kind of forcing you to stick around despite the disfunction. While the culture, mission, and values look great on paper, this can be a very low-trust environment, leading to churn, constantly revisiting decisions, and other frustrations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Newmont seriously needs to do a significant culture transformation. Merely adjusting the strategy and hoping that the next level of management will fall into line isn't working.

    I worked at Newmont Mining full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay, better then most other jobs in the area. Variety of training available. Good overall experience.

    Cons

    There tends to be a break down in communication when issues arise. Certain departments run over others. Long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better. Show an interest in the success of your employees.
