I worked at Thompson Creek

Pros

The people I worked with at Thompson Creek are some of the best people I have ever known. The work environment overall is quickly paced, but never overwhelming. The presence on site of senior management creates a solid culture of disclosure and goal transparency.

Cons

Benefits package left a little to be desired.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase insurance coverage for your full-time employees.

    Lot's of opportunity to develop, mostly because they never have enough people to match the work being performed.

    I worked at Thompson Creek full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You can move up quickly as long as you are willing to go above and beyond which is expected, decent time-off and comp time at the operations, operations have a great working environment, decent compensation for the market. If you work here, working at the operations is where you want to go where there are established policies, procedures, and consistent management styles.

    Cons

    No work-life balance, expected to work 50+ hours to complete 2 people's jobs since they will not hire additional people, no consistency in management style, CFO tends to play favorites, which demoralizes the rest of the corporate accounting group, no set policies and procedures which allows management to make decisions on the fly without any planning whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent with managing employees, create and follow policies and procedures, especially in human resources, create a culture of planning your work and working the plan rather than reactive management, recognize employees for hard work by matching headcount to the actual work that needs to be done.

    I have been working at Thompson Creek full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A steady paycheck and benefits are always a good thing.

    Cons

    Lean staffing so employees must shoulder the burden by working excessively long hours. Too many expensive external consultants. Heavy turnover at the top, including announced departure of CEO Loughrey. Do your research as the entire industry is challenging. So bonuses are poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your employees who have been there forever and have no incentive to improve.
