    I worked at Newmont Mining full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.
