    Pros

    Great benefits, compensation, and PTO. The company invests in the training of its employees and tries to promote the diversity and inclusion culture.

    Cons

    Can be seen as "the club" mentality.

    I worked at Newmont Mining full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some good folks that make this generally hostile work environment tolerable.
    The bonuses help compensate for some of the overly regulated, big brother feel of this outfit.
    Without the annual bonus this outfit wouldn't deserve 1 star.

    Cons

    Where to start. There are too many YES MEN AND WOMEN especially in middle management. They're parrots and it's pathetic! There's too much micro management and too many poor decisions to waste money on over-regulation instead of focusing on their employees. They bend over to the useless government bureacracy called MSHA - an organization that does not help the Mining industry as it should - too much petty fining and inconsistency from one inspector to another and sometimes with the same inspector(s).

    Also, Newmont has spent too much money on a pathetic, off shore IT Oursourcing company called Infosys with little to show for their services and causing poor user satisfaction with the IT infrastructure as a whole - a complete waste of time and services that should've been spent in house to find and hire the talent needed to keep these services in the U.S.A. and in house!

    Advice to Management

    I've laid it out above - cancel the Infosys off shore outsourcing, return to focusing on people and their skills and talents to get the gold out of the dirt!

    Pros

    Good pay and bonus structure. Sponsor employee development programs.

    Cons

    Very vague and minimal direction from leadership. They give mixed messages to the teams as there is no consistency in processes which leaves employees feeling directionless and fighting tactical work rather than being able to focus on strategic initiatives. This seems to be the trend in the company over the last 2 years leaving employees who are career oriented very frustrated as there doesn't seem to be any opportunities for career growth. Leaders seem to be very busy trying to prove themselves to their peers.

    I worked at Newmont Mining full-time (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.
