    Pros

    It is a growing company with lots of opportunities.
    We are treated fairly and with respect
    Our compensation and benefits are probably best in class.
    Goldcorp represents all that is positive and challenging in the mining industry: A wide variety of geographic locations, leading edge technology, many different cultures and constantly changing production challenges.

    Cons

    The senior leadership team is distant, inaccessible and seemingly not interested in the rest of the company.
    Other than that, we really cannot complain!

    Advice to Management

    Provide us with your thoughts on where we are, where are going and what you think makes Goldcorp a great company. Providing this type of info only to investors DOES NOT COUNT!!!!
    It is clear that you are not a unified team. Please rectify that.

    Pros

    Goldcorp has the greatest people working for them. The staff is very knoweldgeable and love their jobs. They have great beneifts and provide a standard 3 weeks of vacation for all staff.

    Salary could be higher and earning 4 weeks of vacation could come sooner.

    Keep up the good work, don't become a RIM or Microsoft.... keep working hard to be the best!

    Pros

    Strong corporate values that put people first which is truly amazing for a mining company. The company offers a culture of excellence and those who work at Goldcorp are among the best and brightest in their field.

    Cons

    Goldcorp is a very entrepreneurial company and constantly evolving and changing. This type of environment is not for everyone and requires a good dose of ambiguity tolerance.

    I have been working at Goldcorp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    By far the best wages and benefit plans of anyone around. There are plenty of opportunities for career advancement for those that seek it and work for it.

    Cons

    Too many contractors that do not have the same training that we have in safety.
    Communication is lacking from mining managers to workers.

    Advice to Management

    We have plenty of injuries that come from contractors yet we still hire them. Why do we hire contractors with poor safety records to work for a company that has safe production as their number one priority?
    Better use of Conveyor on a quarterly basis at least of each mine and their direction and results from the mining manager.
