    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.

    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.
