    Pros

    Great people to work with!

    Cons

    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!

    I have been working at Newmont Mining as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fortune 500 company with awesome potential and huge network. Lots of connections with Big 4 accounting firms. My job that starts after my internship is completed is a direct result of management and their connections with the Denver area accounting firms. Everyone has heard of Newmont! And it's awesome to say that you work for a Gold Company!

    Cons

    Cyclical business...good times are great, bad times are terrible. No benefits for interns. Some of the staff can be a little stand-off-ish.

    Pros

    Benefit package for USA domestic post is unbeatable. Great location for a corporate headquarters.

    Cons

    Stressful work environment. Most competent people are not promoted. High performers are not rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company has some of the best people in the business, but the company does not do enough to hold on to its best assets.

    Stressful, unfocused work environment. Directors and Executives have huge egos. Very short staffed after recent layoffs.

    I have been working at Newmont Mining full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most people are very nice

    Cons

    Managers, directors and executives have big egos, and don't work well with others. Executives preach "One Newmont", but separate themselves from average employees. Pay is behind industry standards for lower level employees. Work environment is very fast paced, stressful, and unfocused, yet it takes months for directors and executives to make decisions. Good employees leaving in droves due to poor management and unreasonable work load after recent layoffs, which just gets worse as more employees leave for better positions. No one is allowed to say no, and employees will go from one person to the next until they get what they want. No advancement opportunities for employees below manager level. Benefits package gets worse every year, with health insurance costs and deductibles rising more than 5 times this year alone. Its all about who you know, not what you know at Newmont. Too many directors with too little work to do, most just move information from their employees to the executives, and micromanage their employees to death. Elitist and entitled culture where executives rule like spoiled children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get focused and concentrate on holding onto good employees. Review compensation and benefits, you're taking advantage of your low level employees. Treat your employees with more respect and maybe you will get some in return.

    I worked at Newmont Mining as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    As an intern, worked on projects that an entry level engineer would work on.

    Cons

    The only bad thing about working here was the early mornings and commuting back and forth to work (roughly 40 minutes each way).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, you do a great job of welcoming new employees and getting the up to speed on things.
