    Pros

    Barrick promotes itself as a leader in the industry, I feel this is true as the people I work with are good people, and there is a good culture.

    Cons

    Wokring on a mine site on a rotational basis means that it can be hard sometimes to have to spend time away from the family. The roster are pretty good though so that makes it bearable.
