    I worked at Newmont Mining as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    This company tends to be very diverse. There are many opportunities to advance or cross train. Benefits packages and pay are rewarding.

    Cons

    The mining environment could be a little more professional sometimes. They could also learn a few things from other companies (like using helicopters with scanners rather than sending surveyors to shoot in steep stockpiles) (of course, that's job security, right?)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is great to be part of a company that is willing to change for the better. Many times, though, management decisions are not communicated well with the employees that have to deal with them. Confusion seemed to often leads to citations. Taking things a little slower as far as hiring is also nice. It's unfortunate when more people are hired than the company can maintain and people are laid off when the price of gold decreases again (as it always will). A slightly more thorough interviewing process might also reveal which people would be more likely to drive on the right (as opposed to the left) side of the road. I've been a passenger in the vehicle with a few of these individuals and somethings just don't click for some people.

    Pros

    Newmont has weathered the storm as well as anyone in the industry. Really good people.

    Cons

    Tough time for mining. Layoffs and budget cuts make the job more difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep people trained and progressing. They're doing more with less, so give them a reason to stay.

    Former Employee - Senior Manager

    I worked at Newmont Mining full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation package
    Lots of learning opportunities

    Cons

    lack of coherent organizational structure
    work-life balance
    very much a relationship driven organization
    cultural and gender diversity was an issue (may have changed to the better now)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline work processes and clarify roles and responsibilities among departments, regions and consequently positions.
    Matrix organization is not an excuse to have too many overlaps and even more gaps in responsibilities which make increasingly difficult to move projects forward.
    Do something about the "chiefs" to "Indians" ratio - so many "directors" who never managed a single person let alone departments and/or functions.
    Good luck and keep growing profitably!

    Pros

    Office culture has shifted from mining veterans to young, high caliber people that creates a collegial atmosphere. Great opportunity to work across functions at Corporate and gain experience with the option to travel worldwide and for expat placement.

    Cons

    Limited work-life balance and political power plays are common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer excellent pay and benefits, which some refer to as golden handcuffs. They should take a note from Netflix on people management to retain top employees and eliminate mediocrity.

    Career growth is difficult. Hard to move to other companies unless you are willing to take a cut in pay/benefits. With recent lay-offs, doing more work with less people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let's focus on career opportunities/growth within!
