    I have been working at Barrick Gold full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay is decent but no longer competitive

    Cons

    Work life balance is extremely off. Expected to work excessive hours as salary.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t forget about your biggest commodity. The employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Barrick Gold full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some really great people who worked hard and did a great job. A lot of opportunity if you had the right manager.

    Cons

    Sad it had to come to an end. Some colleagues were not as good as they thought they were or had own agenda. Company lost a lot of money in South American "investments". Some Managers in key positions could make it harder than it needed to be.

    Advice to Management

    Too late for advice; sold most of their Australian assets. Good luck in South America!

    They are pushing to be the leader in the gold industry.

    The last 5 years have been a constant state of fluctuation.

    Advice to Management

    Your people often know more than the consultants brought in. Trust your teams more.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Barrick Gold full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I actually can't think of anything.

    Cons

    Total lack of cohesion on a difficult site, empires built at all departments, lack of resources and a never ending rotation of advisor and subject matter experts, all on ridiculous salaries contributing very little and impacting on the overall costs.

    Advice to Management

    Build a team, engage your frontline supervision and listen. A great depth of experience exists on site,yet due to some being former Equinox employees you don't listen to there advice.
