    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

    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

    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.

    Pros

    By far the best wages and benefit plans of anyone around. There are plenty of opportunities for career advancement for those that seek it and work for it.

    Cons

    Too many contractors that do not have the same training that we have in safety.
    Communication is lacking from mining managers to workers.

    Advice to Management

    We have plenty of injuries that come from contractors yet we still hire them. Why do we hire contractors with poor safety records to work for a company that has safe production as their number one priority?
    Better use of Conveyor on a quarterly basis at least of each mine and their direction and results from the mining manager.

    Pros

    Strong corporate values that put people first which is truly amazing for a mining company. The company offers a culture of excellence and those who work at Goldcorp are among the best and brightest in their field.

    Cons

    Goldcorp is a very entrepreneurial company and constantly evolving and changing. This type of environment is not for everyone and requires a good dose of ambiguity tolerance.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Keep overhead costs low, keep organization lean and efficient.
