    I worked at Newmont Mining full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, retirement matching, community involvement, stability.

    Cons

    Inflexible hours for working mothers/fathers, no matter how efficient the employee which makes being a working family nearly impossible. Very difficult to get support for new ideas or technology that would help make products and work more up-to-date and cutting edge. Being discriminatory or passive aggressive as management seems to be encouraged but actual results and work is not. Overall, if you are a motivated employee and enjoy the path you've chosen, especially if you are in the geosciences, this is not an employer that appreciates and supports passion.

    Advice to Management

    Find fellow managers that sit at a desk watching sports or following weather all day and get rid of them. They breed apathy and tend to be those that discourage the people they manage from doing anything ambitious and might make them look bad. Passive aggressive managers who give no direction and show no interest in helping their employees learn what is expected of them are useless as well.

    I worked at Newmont Mining full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Health Benefits, compensation, community outreach, generous retirement contribution, and paid time off allocations.

    Cons

    Constant blame shifting, always looking to 'cut heads' when something goes wrong. Useless training for managers and supervisors that is never followed up on. Major safety issues swept under the rug to keep stats and numbers to corporate liking. Huge wastes of money on useless initiatives but wont spend on projects that will increase health or safety of employees. Office buildings crawling in bugs and rodents, floors rotting out under them but brand new HD TV's in the managers offices and billboards at gates.

    Advice to Management

    Don't pretend to be buddies with an employee just to pry information on others whom you don't like. Extreme bias presented by some supervisors/managers obvious to many but HR seems to fear messing up their diversity or scared of reprisals for reprimanding female managers that are completely unqualified to manage people, let alone work with other people in general, supervisors with zero people skills trying to lone wolf departments and dragging everyone else through the mud behind them. HR KNOWS THIS IS HAPPENING and does NOTHING. Stop BS'ing everyone on the review and bonus system on stats these guys literally cannot control what a joke. All this talk of improving the culture needs to start with managers, the poor supervisors and the guys that do the work safe and aren't rewarded.
