    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Barrick Gold full-time

    Pros

    Pay is better than most employers, however Elko is expensive and a terrible a place to live. Insurance, 401K.

    Cons

    Work life balance. Management has no real management or leadership skills. The underground is ran by a dictator and he rules by fear, posturing, intimidation, and demeaning employee's. This creates a threatening and hostile work environment.

    Pros

    Good benefits, stable work environment for the industry.

    Management doesn't address the issues in the work place, they ignore it and hope it will go away. Pay not really based on performance. Every hourly employee paid the same for their tech level no matter the type of job.

    I have been working at Barrick Gold full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good work environment, great safety values, lots of training opportunities, and very diverse in-company work opportunities for career enrichment.

    Cons

    Gold price is the make or break (not really much the company can do to control this...). Otherwise, you get the issues that come with a large corporation such as bureaucratic systems and complicated avenues to get work down that would be simpler at a smaller company.
