    Pros

    Fortune 500 company with awesome potential and huge network. Lots of connections with Big 4 accounting firms. My job that starts after my internship is completed is a direct result of management and their connections with the Denver area accounting firms. Everyone has heard of Newmont! And it's awesome to say that you work for a Gold Company!

    Cons

    Cyclical business...good times are great, bad times are terrible. No benefits for interns. Some of the staff can be a little stand-off-ish.
