    I have been working at Barrick Gold full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Bigger Company, Potential to move around and work on projects

    Cons

    The company is hemorrhaging technical services personnel and doesn't have a plan (or even an interest) to remedy. The company loves reports and stats so much that it inhibits actual work such as creating mine plans, logging core (the things that make money). We are seen as a tangible resource here that is no different than a haul truck or drill.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better and respect their work/life balance. If you actually have happy employees you will recruit more people.
