    "Mining Engineering Intern"

    Pros

    Great people, great pay, lots of overtime opportunity, rewarding work. The internship felt less like an internship and more like a full time engineering position.

    Cons

    Lovelock is a very small town with not much to do, I would recommend living in Reno and renting a place in Lovelock during the work week.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, the intern program is very rewarding and the entire company is a great place to work.

    Unethical and horrible upper management. No clear direction for the future, lots of politics and scapegoating. Anyone who stands up to it is fired.

    I have been working at Coeur Mining full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Schedule was good, a lot of fun work to be done, can lead to a lot of training in different areas of mine geology. There is a lot of room for work to be done. Expect things and plans to change, constantly - all needed to be done yesterday.

    Cons

    Really hard to stay ahead - the lack of communication and planning on some affects everybody at different levels. I found myself stretched too thin with responsibilities that I was not being compensated for - yet responsible to respond to when something was incorrect or needed fixing.

    Advice to Management

    Please, meetings suck, we all know, but if the upper levels had a more clear picture of what to do on a weekly basis then we wouldn't be running around like chickens with thier heads cut off.
    Pay your employees the position title you give them!!!!!!

    "Reactionary Leadership / No Accountability"

    I worked at Coeur Mining full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation was fair and the offices in Chicago are well outfitted and located centrally. On average, all of the people that work here are nice but its bad apples certainly do spoil the environment.

    Cons

    The indecision (moodiness/reactionary nature) of senior management make it difficult. As another reviewer commented, leadership says one thing yet their actions do not match their words. Policies that are championed to the company as a whole are circumvented by the very people championing the initiative when they have a smaller audience or when they think circumstances require a shortcut.
    The in-fighting between operations and development is comical (as is the air of superiority many people in the office possess).

    Advice to Management

    All the cliches apply here... Hold people accountable, including yourselves. Practice what you preach. Address policies and procedures and then enforce them.
    Finally, I would suggest they get some perspective. The company hasn't become an innovative industry leader just because it moved to a first class city. It's a mining company and the people doing the real work are at the mines. Some personnel in the corporate office should be reminded that they aren't the ones doing the real work.

    "Typical mining company"

    Pros

    Can't think of any pros.

    Cons

    Can't trust any of the executives; they say one thing and do another. They use people and then lay them off once they get what they need from them. Complaining to HR will get you no where and most likely fired. Very political company where someone will stab you in the back if they can get ahead or make themselves look better.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the toxic VP's that are ruining your company.

    I worked at Coeur Mining full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The range of professionals provide a unique working environment with lots of educational opportunities. Flexible work schedule allows setting aside vacation time easy. Compensation is generally reasonable considering cost of living in Alaska. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Inter-departmental communication is difficult at times. Opportunities for advancement is limited, meaning it takes several years to make any change in position, which is difficult for someone starting out.

    Advice to Management

    Share the workload with lower level employees to provide opportunities for advancement and career growth.
