Pros

The pay is ok and when you have Newmont in your resume you will go very far in terms of bigger and better job offers.

Cons

Poor employee Induction especially in the SCM department. You will only survive here if you agree with the boss the loudest, not because you perform the well. Too many emotional and insecure people working here.

Advice to Management

Put more emphasis on employee induction

    Pros

    As one of the industry leaders in gold mining Newmont leads in environmental/health/safety issues. I enjoyed travelling around the world to the different sites. The science of gold mining is fascinating in and of itself, but the benefits of salary, generous 401k, stock, and pension all added to that 'shine'.

    Cons

    It is a good old boys club. It has always been about who you know. Additionally, the culture is short sighted - 'if you are not moving dirt, you're not adding value.'

    Advice to Management

    Dick O'Brien seems to be level headed and intent on changing the direction of the company. This review was based largely on the organization prior to his lead. Communicating vision and strategies to lower level employees is key to keeping everyone rowing in the same direction though.

    Promoting people based on political decisions rather than technical ability is poor management
