    I have been working at Newmont Mining full-time

    Pros

    Great pay
    Great benefits
    Lots of time off

    Cons

    If you're salaried exempt, they let you work all the overtime you want!

    Advice to Management

    Stop the succession planning joke. Everybody knows preference goes to Rio Tinto employees.

    Pros

    Good pay and bonus structure. Sponsor employee development programs.

    Cons

    Very vague and minimal direction from leadership. They give mixed messages to the teams as there is no consistency in processes which leaves employees feeling directionless and fighting tactical work rather than being able to focus on strategic initiatives. This seems to be the trend in the company over the last 2 years leaving employees who are career oriented very frustrated as there doesn't seem to be any opportunities for career growth. Leaders seem to be very busy trying to prove themselves to their peers.
