    I worked at Newmont Mining full-time

    Pros

    Overall, there is a very friendly atmosphere. I saw a lot of cooperation across departments. There is also a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    It was hard to think of a con. The only con is that things can get dull. However, I would take dull over chaotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nice job! Maintain the positive work-life balance and good culture!

    I worked at Newmont Mining as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked at their smaller MTF lab and the people there were great. It is a pretty big company, fortune 500 and 46,000 employees, so there are the benefits of the big company. I worked at a 200 person lab, so there was definitely also the feel of a nice homey place to work. Very good work life balance working 9/80s.

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons

    Pros

    Really open to try new technology, people is really engaged with the company,

    Cons

    they keep losing good people, Newmont doesnt even care to do an exit interview. Growth is really slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasting money is stupid bikes and use it to attract good people (not Hell's angels members) and do everything you can to retain your talent, mining companies are looking for skilled people.
