    I worked at Goldcorp full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable and one of the largest of its kind.
    Great benefits for all its workers
    This company looks out for your safety 24/7

    Cons

    Most of their sites are far from civilization
    The food quality in camps is not as good as other sites

    Advice to Management

    There is a lot of rotation at higher levels of the company and a lot of people that the company has invested years and thousands in training are let go by the newcomers. There should be more care towards the people below who have been there for the company.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent pay, their Canadian mines seem more stable,

    Cons

    They seam to be abandoning their smaller mines along with the people who work at them, which contradicts one of the six pillars (the companies alleged core philosophy) they are selling all their US assets which means people are getting laid off

    Advice to Management

    Quit selling out

    I worked at Goldcorp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Co-workers were nice.
    - Good benefits.

    Cons

    - No development or growth. you're hired to do one job and you have to do it with what you've learned elsewhere.
    - You're just a body that can always be replaced. they're not interested in retaining you.
    - Management is an "elite" that sit up in the clouds divorced from realities of the front line worker.
    - Take it or leave it attitude.
    - You're expected to work more hours than what you were hired for and "for free" while you're at it.
    - 0 Job security. Every year there's a "purge" on each site that does not appear to have any rhyme or reason to it other than cutting costs.

    Advice to Management

    - Treat people with respect. You don't have to be verbally abusive to actually demean a worker.


  9. "Great Company Overall"

    I worked at Goldcorp full-time

    Pros

    - Fast paced & Challenging,
    - Knowledgable and friendly team,
    - Lot's of learning and growth opportunities
    - Strong focus on safety and worker well-being

    Cons

    - Underfunded & understaffed departments
    - Weak/unfocused leadership
    - Very bureaucratic

    Advice to Management

    Communication between departments, and even between sites at large needs to be more streamlined. The wide array of knowledge and experience at Goldcorp can certainly be tapped further, across the organization, to help the company be more streamlined and overcome operational difficulties.
