    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay and good benefits, all employees were helpful when someone was in need, good level of communication from management,

    Cons

    The level of drama within the office is highly distracting, too much micro-managing, almost nothing runs to schedule, IT issues took a long time to resolve

    Advice to Management

    Please stop micromanaging your workers. It slows everything down and raises a lot of hostility. Let people do their jobs without management breathing down their necks.

    Pros

    I found the company pays quite well and most of the employees recognized and appreciated this.
    A lot of international exposure for the Head Office employees.
    Great company to have on your resume.

    Cons

    Highly political environment at the head office due to Barrick's weird corporate structure with a large head office and large regional offices.
    Work life balance is way off in some departments
    Some roles have too much travel involved.

    Advice to Management

    Steps need to be taken to change the 'me' culture at the head office. Too often the loudest voice wins rather than the correct voice.
