    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Agnico Eagle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary, Food, Benefits, Nunavut experience, Gym, fly-in, most people. I enjoyed the experience of working with Nunavut people and made many friends across Quebec and the rest of Canada.

    Cons

    Regulations not important, favoritism and insider hiring. I was framed by management for a false diesel leak spill shortly the mining inspectors arrived on-site. The company will take the cheapest route from what I seen, even if that includes not following reulations or employing the proper trades tickets. Saw high ranking senior management at the mine engage in sexist behavior. Not a place I'd be sending my daughter for a co-op placement. The company always will say the right thing but not necessarily do it. There is a big disconnect between Toronto and the reality in Nunavut.

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good when you add everything up. It's a big part of why anyone stays despite everything else. You can find some nice people to work and make good friends.

    Cons

    The previous comments on here are right -. Agnico has many problems with bullying, discrimination, favortism and bad leadership. They keep promoting people who shouldn't be in leadership positions. Senior management ignores the problems and some of them are the problem. There are many examples of poor leadership but it's impossible to rely on HR in those cases. HR has a reputation of having poor leadership and displaying behaviors that include burning out and bullying their own team members to the point that many have left. If that kind of leadership is tolerated in HR then how can you prevent other departments from doing the same? Agnico does a good job telling you how great they are but a really bad job living up to it when it comes to the work atmosphere and holding leaders accountable.

    Pros

    Good pay Nice CEO Accessible executives Good employee programs

    Cons

    Sexism - not a good place for women wanting to advance. Not supportive of women wanting to start a family. They get annoyed with maternity leaves. They visible treat men differently and with more respect and inclusivity. Racism - knowingly or not they make racist and insensitive comments often. Complaints don't get treated seriously and there are almost never any consequences for the offender. Bullying - too many leaders use this tactic and get away with it. emotionally unsafe environment. Micromanagement - leaders focus on controlling things that employes should be able to handle. You have to get too many people involved in projects and it slows the process too much wasting time and money Unclear expectations - hard to know what they want and they always keep changing Overwork/no life balance - jobs are overloaded on purpose and burn people out. Favoritism/nepotism - both exist all over the company and its to the disadvantage of so many good and smart people with no relation ties in the company. Out of touch- operating in really old ways of thinking and not open to change . Old technology and no vision for anything new or innovative

    I worked at Agnico Eagle full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    My intentions are to work with a professional team with the objective of carrying out activities that develop skills in the workplace, as well as acquire geological-mining knowledge, learning how to develop and work in mining environments with the highest industry standards. On the other side, the practice of the English language in work would be of great relevance for my professional development

    Cons

    That i only did my practices
