    Pros

    Newmont has competitive benefits, employees are professional, good salary

    Cons

    Managers are lacking in basic skills, it's not what you know but who you know in order for promotion and succession. They say they are progressive but it takes a long time to make any significant changes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and act upon what you say. Work with your employees to see them successfully grow. Be their advocates and support their professional needs.

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

    Pros

    Peers and select managers are great to work with. Strong focus on safety. CEO has a solid vision and is effectively steering company from operational perspective. Lots of potential as exploration is going strong.

    Cons

    Mine Operations pretty good to work for. Finance & Planning not as good - the hours are long and recognition can be lacking. Regional offices and corporate (HQ) very political. Advancement is contingent on who you know. To bring you on board, Recruiting may tout many benefits but many of these benefits you may never realize, such as vesting in benefit plans. Males seem to be discriminated against in the interest of diversity as they seek to hire more women.
