    I have been working at Kinross Gold full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company offers a lot of incentives. Good safety program, and most management care about their people.

    Cons

    Political nonsense. Women have a harder time working here, lack of respect and acknowledgement. A bit of nepotism. Schedules are hard to live with, but that isn't really something they can change.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what people have to offer, not who they know.

    Small valley and community so everyone knows everyone. It's one big family. Pay is awesome!!! Schedules are very good so you have time to get away if needed.

    Cons

    Can be high demanding and stressful at times.

    Pros

    High opportunity for education and experience in the mining industry. Above average income & benefits offered. High emphasis on safety. Family like community.

    Cons

    Properties are generally in remote locations (not necessarily a bad thing, if that is what you are looking for). Procurement of goods beyond groceries, require driving long distances.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication open

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Kinross Gold (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay for mining, great benefits, paid holidays and vacation, lots of overtime if you want it.

    Cons

    Remote rural location, very little to do recreationaly, 3 hours drive to nearest hospital and the company is more concerned with their bottom line than anything else. Bitter cold and windy winters. They preach culture and values in all their meetings but seldom did we ever see them practiced.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open minded to employee suggestions in operational settings. After all, they're the ones producing your gold day in and day out.....and stop running people off for petty reasons. As you know, it's hard enough to get good people to stay in that valley long term.

    Continue to be cash rich to ride out market down turns

    Pros

    Kinross pays good wages and has many knowledgeable employees. I really enjoyed working under my supervisors because they were sincere in how they cared for their employees.

    Cons

    The mine operations they own are generally in remote areas, so lifestyle outside of work may be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    There is good pay and good hours. They have plenty of benefits to compete with other companies.

    Cons

    They are not as forthcoming with information to non management personnel as they could be. They hide and change their mind more with out telling employees until the last minute. Often making employees work days they expected to be off without. Upper management doesn't seem to be in control of employees.
    They have a list of values but only follow them when it is convenient for the bottom line. Health, safety and environmental issues only matter if it doesn't cost any extra money or slow production down.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the handbook, stop lying to employees and be a little more forthcoming with information.

    Pros

    Fort Knox is a wonderful place to work, with a generally upbeat, can-do work culture. In general the expectations are very high, so expect to work very hard. There are also ample opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    The work days can be long, and the work repetitive. The weather conditions in Fairbanks are also very hard for some.
