    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent pay, their Canadian mines seem more stable,

    Cons

    They seam to be abandoning their smaller mines along with the people who work at them, which contradicts one of the six pillars (the companies alleged core philosophy) they are selling all their US assets which means people are getting laid off

    Advice to Management

    Quit selling out

    I worked at Goldcorp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent Group Benefits for all Office Employees and their families

    Cons

    The Toronto Office went for a crap when New Management was brought in. They just let people go on a whim for no reason.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure new Management understand the difference between Inc. and Canada employees

    I have been working at Goldcorp full-time

    Pros

    very safe place to work with good benefits

    Cons

    poor moral in workforce with changes being forced upon then that don't always make any sense. Very hard for young workers to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Have one clear voice and a common path to obtain the set goals. Listen to the worker and have one plan to move forward with not a new one on every shift change

    Pros

    Goldcorp has a great position in the industry, being a industry leader Goldcorp takes great effort to provide a safe, healthy and profitable working environment for employees. Goldcorp encourages transfers between different working sites and there are many different carrers such as miners tradesmen, mill technicians, refiners, assay technicians, training, HR, engineering, secretarial, mechanical, electrical, construction, carpentry, and many more. Goldcorp offers numerous employee education and improvement programs to inspire leadership and growth of people. Goldcorp also pays competitive wages.

    Cons

    From my experience some of the negative aspects could be the remote location of some mine sites. requiring the employee to work on a two week on two week off schedule, (which is also a good thing for some people.) Mining is also not the easiest of jobs. Underground operations also have a higher risk factor.

    Advice to Management

    I enjoy working at Goldcorp. I really encourage our senior executives to continue the strategy being put in place. Continue being open and approachable. Having been able to meet many of the corporate executives in the company I work for, is one of the many reason I would never work anywhere else.

    Low costs, great people, company commitment to people and their development, company commitment to smart growth, 10 properties in low risk areas, great wages and benefits.

    Few properties in USA, means few US opportunities.

    Keep overhead costs low, keep organization lean and efficient.

    Pros

    It is a growing company with lots of opportunities. We are treated fairly and with respect Our compensation and benefits are probably best in class. Goldcorp represents all that is positive and challenging in the mining industry: A wide variety of geographic locations, leading edge technology, many different cultures and constantly changing production challenges.

    Cons

    The senior leadership team is distant, inaccessible and seemingly not interested in the rest of the company. Other than that, we really cannot complain!

    Advice to Management

    Provide us with your thoughts on where we are, where are going and what you think makes Goldcorp a great company. Providing this type of info only to investors DOES NOT COUNT!!!! It is clear that you are not a unified team. Please rectify that.

    Salary could be higher and earning 4 weeks of vacation could come sooner.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, don't become a RIM or Microsoft.... keep working hard to be the best!
