    I worked at Goldcorp full-time for 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.

    I have been working at Goldcorp

    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
