    I worked at Newmont Mining full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Interesting work.

    Cons

    Safety is something you'll hear about 50 times a day. Too bad it's all for show. Bring up legitimate safety concerns and you'll be held back from raises and promotions, as well as given the least desirable jobs. Keep trying to change the safety culture and they'll make up a reason to fire you. Management does whatever they want with no accountability, as does HR. Do as I say, not as I do.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing will help them. They are determined to engage in substandard practices.

    I worked at Newmont Mining (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, and benefits, was a great IT team

    Cons

    Current ELT ruined the "employee first" concept that once made it a great place to work. New CEO came in about 1 year after I started and began the layoffs, from then on it happened about every 6 months just under a different corporate buzz word. The last one used was "Full potential" which outsourced all of Denver operations to India. Leadership does not care about the individual!

    Pros

    Very good leadership training and development opportunities for director and above. Very good pay and benefits packages and 4 day 10-hour/day work weeks in corporate office.

    Cons

    Leadership retreat invitations for executives were not extended to certain level or area of responsibility, but to whom was "in" or friends with the right C-Suite executives. Very much a boys club, though a few women have been promoted to senior position over last two years. Forced ranking during reviews even of small teams whose performance may exceed goals. Lots of very well-paid executives at the corporate office who are never held accountable for results.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at your project capital spend (not EPC and development capital, but all the other projects that add up quickly) and audit AFTER the projects to determine performance of project sponsors. Do not engage in yet another failed "performance improvement" initiative until you determine why all others have failed over past 20 years.

    I have been working at Newmont Mining full-time

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, great PTO, 9/80 work schedule
    Some people are really decent, hard working, smart people

    Cons

    -Too many organizational structure changes.
    -Communication could be better between groups and just in general.
    -The layoffs have been rough for some people. Mostly for the hard working people. These are the people that have the potential to move forward in their careers and accomplish great things at this company. Unfortunately, some of these hard working people are the ones that will probably leave to do exactly that, because they're so bogged down with other work that they can barely do the jobs that they were hired to do. It's fine to do this for a while, but when there's no light at the end of the tunnel, people will eventually leave. On the other hand, these significant layoffs did not scare the slackers enough to actually change their ways, and they're allowed to get away with it which leads me to my advice...

    Advice to Management

    Fire people. When mediocre people are allowed to stay for years by apparently incompetent managers, it doesn't help anything really.
