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.

    I have been working at Thompson Creek full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pros: Excellent people to work with; opportunity to climb the ladder; Focused on safety; Executive team: COO visits sites frequently; CFO: knowledgeable, Friendly and minimizes gaps with employees; New CEO on board implementing changes for the better

    Cons

    Cons: Similar to other mining companies; travel and distance make it hard for work-life balance; Better process documentation and process management is needed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue improving processes and standardize policies and procedures. Document processes. Focusing on information sharing, lean, 6 sigma, and CI is the next step to follow. Introducing new management methodologies through Agile and Business Analysis is also recommended. Retain good employees
