    Pros

    Newmont Mining has an excellent business culture, they offer an excellent compensation package and the company is led by an outstanding CEO.

    Cons

    Newmont is an international company, as such developing effective talent management systems is always a challenge. Career progression is somehow hindered by exposure to decision makers.

    Advice to Management

    Congratulations on doing a great job at managing the business. Price of Gold is at a old time record, nevertheless, don't underestimate the importance of cost controls systems and methodologies.

    Pros

    - 9-80 Work Schedule - 4+ weeks vacation on year one - inexpensive benefits - 20%+ annual bonus potential (10% individual performance and 10% company performance) - strong 401K - great people - lots of personal growth opportunities (lunch n learns, town hall meetings, online training, in-house training, tuition reimbursement, etc)

    Cons

    - long hours - no maternity leave (need to use PTO or go unpaided) - lots of gaps inbetween the ST and LT Disability benefits when you are in the first couple of years of employment

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower your employees as Newmont grows. Don't get away from the family feel from years ago, for most employees enjoyed that aspect of the company.

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, job was easy.

    Cons

    Rotating hours, and the junior high type atmosphere that is probably normal for mines.

    Advice to Management

    Getting rid of the rotating shift would probably be possible, despite the groaning of the work force who had to go on nights. This would help the health of the workforce imo.

    Pros

    Newmont has great benefits and career opportunities. I have been with the company for eighteen years and have worked in four different departments. Each change has brought career growth and significant increases in pay. Benefits are outstanding with both a pension and 401k retirement plan as well as company provided clinics and transportation to mine sites. There is a very strong committment to safety and the environment. Newmont's mine sites in Nevada are very diverse culturally with employees from 20 different countries. Every generation is represented with some employees working for Newmont for almost 50 years!

    Cons

    Northeastern Nevada is very rural but the people are very friendly and there lots of recreational activities and community events to participate in. A great place to put down roots!

    Advice to Management

    The recent management changes are having a positive effect. Things need to move forwad quickly so we are positioned to benefit from the next upturn in gold prices. I'd love to see a merger or acquisition like the most recent one with Fronteer.

    Pros

    Newmont offers competitive, above median salaries; robust benefit plans; and healthy pension/ retirement offerings.

    Cons

    The mining industry as a whole is in a down swing so that makes the working environment tough at times.

    Pros

    Because I am a value added person, I can work under pressure and i am well experienced. I help my HSE manager to come out with the best HSE Plan for my company and am also a trainer for my company, current i have trained about 51 safety assistance

    Cons

    Is good to ensure a tool box talk to all your workers prior to commencement of work each day to ensure a good safe system of work and also make sure that risk assessment and method statements as per every activity is well communicated to all workers. Provide good welfare facilities to ensure workers are healthy at all times and motivate them

    Advice to Management

    Management should demonstrate commitment towards health and safety to avoid sick leave, accident/incident rate, compensation claims and prison. Management should make safety a priority and also provide training to all staff or employees to ensure that the properties and personnel are protected at all times
