    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 10 years)

    Pros

    Goldcorp pays good salaries. The company compares itself with the regular trend in the market.

    Cons

    Maybe the International part of Goldcorp promotes good salaries, but the national part has local policies that reduces the salaries of the Expats. Everything is under the legal terms but the salary of the Expats is reduced to equalize to the salaries paid in the local country.

    Advice to Management

    Please, let the Expats maintain their salaries and benefits as they were hired. That policy affected my income and it is affecting the income of the rest of Expats.

    I worked at Goldcorp full-time

    Pros

    1. The best CEO I’ve ever encountered. Strategic, strong values, cares about employees deeply. Takes time to get to know everyone, is inclusive and humble and shows appreciation. A visionary leader with a sharp mind.

    2. Great compensation and benefits

    3. Lots of opportunity to grow (*if you are well liked or have a good sponsor). Company offers lots of training and development

    4. Strong values and attitude toward safety.

    Cons

    1. Unfortunately, many individuals in leadership positions are not in line with the values of the organization. Some departments have fantastic leaders but some are under poor leadership that often involves, exclusivity, bullying, favouritism. Most will say the right things but their actions and decisions do not match what they preach.

    Advice to Management

    The front line management/supervisors are good leaders but need to be given more responsibility in management duties. They are operating more as team leads with very little decision making power. This group typical is caring of employees. The SVP’s are well connected to employees, strategic decision makers and are in line with the values of the company and CEO direction. The area that suffers is within the director and VP level as some are in total disalignment it values. Turnover is high for this reason.
    My advice is to engage external auditors on the leaders experiencing most turnover within their departments.
