    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.

    Advice to Management

    Cross departmental communication can be an issue; clear and concise understanding of policies and procedures hard to come by... sometimes have to talk to several people before you get a clear answer.
