    I have been working at Newmont Mining full-time

    Pros

    The health care benefits are truly amazing, if not for their help I would have gone bankrupt due to medical bills for my wife, but they step in when the insurance says they can't pay anymore. A true blessing

    Cons

    Sometimes the company can get things a bit backwards. They seem to not care that people are conically absent, but when someone hasn't called for any unscheduled reason for 6 years, then calls in one time for medical issues they seem to think it's absolutely terrible, even punishing the employee.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits! They love taking care of their employees and it shows. They have some wonderful people working for them that make it a great place to be.

    Cons

    Where to start? The technology is outdated at best and they are slow at changing it. My honest opinion is that they don’t want to change it, but I could be wrong. They openly brag about how many hours employees have to work and the reason for that is because of the dinosaur technology they have. You work twice as hard there to do menial tasks that are a waste of time.
    That leads me to work life balance. It doesn’t exist there. They have an outdated view on this and upper management leads the way in working 24-7. I’m surprised most of their older managers don’t have heart disease with the amount of stress and work the company dumps on them.

    Advice to Management

    I think I summarized it well in my “cons” section.

    I worked at Newmont Mining full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The salaries are good. The stability (for a mining company) is good. Coworkers are good. They have good avenues for education and career path.

    Cons

    Over the past 5 years they have taken focus off of employee satisfaction. Benefits are much poorer yet more expensive. Bullying is not only tolerated but accepted as a way to get results. Human Resources focuses more on process and punishment than strategic items.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to thinking of people as being as precious as gold.

    Great pay for a job where you actually use geology from your university experience. The company really cares about developing you into the role you want.

    Great job keeping employees happy and management has been good
