    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.

    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.
