    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

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits, great people, good CEO. Company has a lot going for it and the foundations are there to once again be great.

    Cons

    Corporate culture has suffered over the past few years. People in leadership roles don't necessarily possess the skills necessary to lead and communicate effectively, and it's taken effect on employees (speaking for corporate office only).

    Advice to Management

    Review the skills of those in leadership positions and assess and promote accordingly. Often felt that promotions occur as a result of being in the right "clique" and not necessarily on merit.

    Very much a "big company" - driven by meaningless metrics and targets set by people with no technical knowledge or by those who should know better
