    I have been working at Newmont Mining full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are very good. Good work schedule as far as time off goes. The company loves to give back and be involved in the community. Most coworkers are great people. Training is available and it is paid but it is usually done as an overtime shift.

    Cons

    Night shift can be tough to get through, If you are the low man on the ladder, it doesn't matter how many years experience you have, you will be doing work that correlates to your standing among coworkers. Low morale. Excessive safety rules make it even harder to do the work. Not much time to do training unless it is on your own time. Very hard to schedule time off due to one-person-off-at-a-time rules.

    Advice to Management

    Separate Carlin and Emigrant. Carlin is running 4 times the equipment than all the other Nevada mines under Newmont but has basically a skeleton crew. It is believed the maintenance group is overstaffed but in reality the combining of two mines makes it look that way. If people need to call off shift or take vacation time, it hurts the equipment availability. There needs to be dedicated positions for lube truck, field service, and fuel dock operators completely separate from the shop so that people applying for the jobs know what they are applying for at the beginning instead of finding out their fate a month after they're hired.

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

    Pros

    ELT had great vision and direction to secure a long term future success of company.

    Cons

    Perspective is the change in leadership not in the best interest for company, shareholders or employees. New ELT’s direction was not what Boyce and predecessors had spent last 95+ years continuously working to maintain; specifically ensuring company growth; not growth in pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Advice would be to BOD...take historical view why company had longevity and loyalty in personnel. What legacy does Newmont want to known for and those affiliated to it.
