    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Newmont Goldcorp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary, bonuses, most of the people

    Cons

    Matrix leadership in disarray, too many 'bosses' not enough 'doers', people afraid to make decisions, leadership missing in action, huge no man's land separation between top management and everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Firm up the leadership and decision-making and ensure the message is clear from top down, and that everyone fully understands the mission and path forward. Stop laying off all the folks at the bottom while you retain all the VPs.

    I have been working at Newmont Goldcorp full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There are always interesting projects and opportunities to learn and grow on the job. The workforce is highly intelligent, and they care. We put out quality, leading edge work in many spaces

    Cons

    The Board of Directors and Executive Team are twitchy - the tides of where to head seem to change frequently (~18 months). We've done layoffs around the world for the past 3 years. We have a hierarchical culture that looks for senior advice and go-ahead, unfortunately, with a fair amount of fear underneath of it.

    Advice to Management

    Consider what picture to paint of the company 5-10 years from now. We're very short term minded. Focus on the behaviors that will be productive and build relationships.

    I worked at Newmont Goldcorp full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good compensation package Lots of learning opportunities

    Cons

    lack of coherent organizational structure work-life balance very much a relationship driven organization cultural and gender diversity was an issue (may have changed to the better now)

    Advice to Management

    Streamline work processes and clarify roles and responsibilities among departments, regions and consequently positions. Matrix organization is not an excuse to have too many overlaps and even more gaps in responsibilities which make increasingly difficult to move projects forward. Do something about the "chiefs" to "Indians" ratio - so many "directors" who never managed a single person let alone departments and/or functions....

    I worked at Newmont Goldcorp for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Solid, well established company offering competitive salaries, good benefits, and rewards for good performance and delivering positive results. Some great co-workers who are dedicated and passionate about their jobs. Safety is a top priority throughout the company. Management encourages growth and development and innovation.

    Cons

    Typical downfalls of a large organization with a lot of bureaucracy to accomplish relatively straightforward tasks and make decisions to get things done. "Matrix reporting" was often challenging and contradictory. Support for remote assignments and locations needed improvement. Long-term employment is dependent on the commodity prices and seniority, and not for the long-term value or benefit of the employee to the company...

    Advice to Management

    Put people in management positions that have been in the trenches (positions) of the people that work under them. Value your most important commodity for long-term success of the company and retain quality, high performing employees.
