I have been working at Newmont Mining

Pros

only good thing was the fellowship between the crew ,we were a family and newmount hated it

Cons

non of the upper management cared about us undergroung,they cared about there end of year fat bonus....15000 to 30000 they treated us like the jews were treated in world war 2 germany

Advice to ManagementAdvice

start to think about your people underground ,they risk there lives every day so you cats get big bucks,and stop putting the worries of 'is this the day i lose my job' on them all you are doing is setting the stage for a fatality.

    Pros

    Great pay compared to market.
    Great benefits.
    Great experience.

    Cons

    Although Newmont recently brought its IT dept inhouse, key portions Newmonts IT staff are still augmented by contractors in an effort to save money. Contractors do not seem to be treated/viewed by mgmt the same as in-house Newmont employees. The IT staff as a whole is way to small to do the work on a Global scale that it has been tasked with; thus 60-70 work weeks are common. Although Newmont offers a 9-80 work schedule, tackling an enormous workload with limited staff and the "always-on" global nature of the company makes work/life balance a big challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the CIO - Focus on building teams. Bring the good contractors on board as Newmont employees and hire the right amount of staff based on data from other companies the same size.

    Pros

    - If you have the initiative you can take on multiple projects
    - Lots of personal career growth occurs when working with the "non-workers"
    - Good compensation particularly for multiple internships
    - Will likely discover you don't want to work for Newmont before it's too late

    Cons

    - 1/3 of the workforce calls themselves "the nonworkers" because they litterally avoid doing any work. They will try to prevent you from getting your work done and will do everything possible to make your internship hell. Possibly succeeding.

    - If you don't take the initiative you can spend your entire grinding rocks or worse absolutely nothing

    - Projects frequently are not valuable and are a mutual waste of time

    - Very disorganized intern program

    - Willingness to lose millions of dollars instead of spending thousands of dollars on chemical products

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find the slackers in your organization - they cost you money and stand in everyone's way.
