    I worked at Newmont Mining full-time

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits, great co-workers, very effective CEO
    Working for a highly respected company in the industry

    Cons

    Not learning from past mistakes; implement a major internal project based on the direction of a new Senior Manager without learning why the same project failed in the past. Hopefully this has improved.

    Pros

    Good coworkers, managers, opportunity to grow, they give you opportunities to learn more rather than pigeonhole you and forget about you

    Cons

    Not really any, the commute can be long but that is typical of mining so I really can't fault Newmont with that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the company and its assets
