    I worked at Kinross Gold full-time

    Pros

    Great pay/benefits. Long hours but the time off is a nice bonus.

    Cons

    Closed culture between haves and have nots. Lots of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like something other than headcount to be budgeted downwards to pay for cost overruns from costly acquisitions 10 years ago.

    Pros

    Decent money and good benefits

    Cons

    typical corporate mentality. You are just a number and can be replaced.

    Advice to Management

    They should actually care about employees. They should treat employees like they are needed and not just a number.

    Management is dishonest. Endless promises of improvements, no real results.

    Be honest with your employees, maybe your turnover problem would improve.

    Pros

    Good company safety culture, lots of departments and opportunities for growth. Competitive pay

    Cons

    Area is very rural, 3 hours from most things. Seems a lot of 'who you know' people get jobs.

    Trim off the top. (lots of managers/supervisors overlap)

    Pros

    Great group of people. Corporate teams are always ready to support. Site teams have very strong safety and operational culture.

    Cons

    Too much freedom for the sites. Corporate could be more demanding so that standards accross sites are stronger.

    Advice to Management

    Operate sites as a portfolio not as collection of separate entities.

    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.
