    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Safe, relaxed work environment. Safety is primary! Excellent people and fun to work with. Highly recommend. Exciting environment.

    Cons

    Busy and hectic travel schedule. Some disconnect between corporate, region and site levels. No extensive standardized set of policies and procedures.

    Continue to drive safety throughout the organization. Develop and streamline processes to the fullest extent possible to make things easier for the sites. More standardization.

    I worked at Goldcorp as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A good place to work, the people are very nice and the lunches very good. The lifetime of the mine is more than 20 years.

    Cons

    It needs more communication between the departments. I wanted more technical projects during my internship but it was ok anyway.

    Advice to Management

    They have a good overview for the company but they have to check specificly the mine site. It needs more coordination between the departments.

    Pros

    They care for their employees,and treat you well in every way.

    Cons

    As a hoist operator the shifts are 12 hours long,because you don't get much excerise it becomes very mentally draining.

    Advice to Management

    More productive work force,more alert if hours were not so long.less accidents.

    I worked at Goldcorp full-time

    Pros

    Allows quick learning and ability to take on new responsibilities. Inclusive work environment; large company with small company feel

    Cons

    have to adjust quickly; do not expect to have a lot of mentoring and guidance. It's not 'sink or swim', but you need to look out for yourself ASAP!

    Advice to Management

    introduce formal mentoring; rotation within corporate roles needs to be more inclusive and formal. Make sure that senior managers are taking on coaching responsibilities as well...
