    Stressful, unfocused work environment. Directors and Executives have huge egos. Very short staffed after recent layoffs.

    I have been working at Newmont Mining full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most people are very nice

    Cons

    Managers, directors and executives have big egos, and don't work well with others. Executives preach "One Newmont", but separate themselves from average employees. Pay is behind industry standards for lower level employees. Work environment is very fast paced, stressful, and unfocused, yet it takes months for directors and executives to make decisions. Good employees leaving in droves due to poor management and unreasonable work load after recent layoffs, which just gets worse as more employees leave for better positions. No one is allowed to say no, and employees will go from one person to the next until they get what they want. No advancement opportunities for employees below manager level. Benefits package gets worse every year, with health insurance costs and deductibles rising more than 5 times this year alone. Its all about who you know, not what you know at Newmont. Too many directors with too little work to do, most just move information from their employees to the executives, and micromanage their employees to death. Elitist and entitled culture where executives rule like spoiled children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get focused and concentrate on holding onto good employees. Review compensation and benefits, you're taking advantage of your low level employees. Treat your employees with more respect and maybe you will get some in return.
