    I worked at Barrick Gold full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people, great compensation, great location.

    Cons

    New leadership team. Chairman is not a miner and it shows. President and CEO is a yes man. The old leadership team was very good and cared but this new team is not interested in its employees other than those in the C suite

    Advice to Management

    Bring back miners to run the company, not financiers and military personnel with no mining background
