    Doesn't Recommend

    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.
