    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 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, bonuses, most of the people

    Cons

    Matrix leadership in disarray, too many 'bosses' not enough 'doers', people afraid to make decisions, leadership missing in action, huge no man's land separation between top management and everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Firm up the leadership and decision-making and ensure the message is clear from top down, and that everyone fully understands the mission and path forward. Stop laying off all the folks at the bottom while you retain all the VPs.

    95 year old company, pay is very good, benefits are near the top of the market (pension, 401k with match, solid medical plans, generous PTO, two paid off days for volunteer work annually, etc.)

    Pros

    Newmont has good benefits, they also have flexible work life balance depending on what department you might work in

    Cons

    It's hard to move around or move up in the organization. There are a lot of glass ceilings. It's dependent upon your manager if you are able to move around or become promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. There's a lot of wonderful talent who know the industry, which is overlooked and a very important part of the job is to know and understand gold mining.
