    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.

    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

    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.

    Keep communication open

    I worked at Kinross Gold full-time (More than 3 years)

    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

    Over a billion dollars in cash. International opportunities. Great leadership and culture. Great support functions (HR, Finance, Environmental Affairs, and Safety). Wonderful corporate values. Aggressive growth profile. Fantastic profit margins. Able to manage and control own destiny as there are hundreds of opportunities posted every month internally and externally. Very responsible mining company that truly tries to live its values.

    Cons

    It is not for the faint of heart. Very fast paced culture. You have to actively manage your life balance or it can start to manage you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
