    I worked at Kinross Gold full-time

    Decent compensation, good safety culture.

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

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

    Pros

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

    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.

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

    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
