    Pros

    Great pay
    Great benefits
    Lots of time off

    Cons

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

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

    I have been working at Newmont Mining (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Because I am a value added person, I can work under pressure and i am well experienced. I help my HSE manager to come out with the best HSE Plan for my company and am also a trainer for my company, current i have trained about 51 safety assistance

    Cons

    Is good to ensure a tool box talk to all your workers prior to commencement of work each day to ensure a good safe system of work and also make sure that risk assessment and method statements as per every activity is well communicated to all workers. Provide good welfare facilities to ensure workers are healthy at all times and motivate them

    Advice to Management

    Management should demonstrate commitment towards health and safety to avoid sick leave, accident/incident rate, compensation claims and prison. Management should make safety a priority and also provide training to all staff or employees to ensure that the properties and personnel are protected at all times

    Pros

    - Great pay, great benefits, great global & cultural exposure
    - Great executive leadership that are truly trying to do the right thing
    - A lot of really great people (intelligent, personable, etc)
    - Great non-promotional career development opportunities if you are self-driven
    - Ability to land a position insisting on more experience than you might have; as long as you are a quick learner, have great people skills, and are a good cultural fit into the team dynamic - they'll take a chance on you.

    Cons

    - Holy POLITICS batman! Too many high level Directors with little to no knowledge of the business they are in charge of - busy managing up and neglect actually being good managers.
    - I haven't had a good boss yet. Every manager has been primarily self-interested and focused on promotion with absolutely no focus on the best interest of their employees career development.
    - Terrible talent management. I've referred 5 of of the smartest people I know to open positions with no response from HR. Lots of missed opportunities; usually results in a high-level manager bringing in his/her buddies from a past company.
    - Once again, POLITICS. It may be the nature of a company this size, but I have never seen more grown men in high-level positions act like such children.

    Advice to Management

    The top is pointed in the right direction, and the bottom is executing on target - sort out the bad apples in Director roles and pay more attention to employee retention. Allow more internal growth opportunities instead of pulling all of your buddies in and neglecting the future of the company. 90% of the employees have been there less than 5 years - do you ever stop and wonder why?
