    Fortune 500, pays well while gold prices are high

    Cons

    Very good company to work for if you're a white male, otherwise it's very hard. Women are hired just for a diversity checkmark unless it's an all female department such as HR.

    Pros

    There are no pros unless you're starting off in management. You will work a terrible 10-12hr schedule rotating days and nights.

    Cons

    This company bought a gold mine I've been employed with for 4 years, they have owned it for about a year now. Our introduction to our new Newmont Mine Manager started with him saying if you don't like how we operate leave you're NOT needed. We were fully self insured and did not have to pay for insurance (being paid less than the national average as miners) we are now required to pay for our insurance, being told it's better insurance (to keep our spirits up). It is not better insurance and we were not given raises to match current national wages (including other mines owned by Newmont). Our community relations department was closed and our company is doing much less for our community. We used to win big prizes at company picnics like vochures for a free set of tires, not anymore. Newmont has proven after offering more than asking price for our company, that they do not care about us the people who do the work in -30 degree weather, work 13-14 hour days far too often , bust knuckles, are unable to maintain friends outside of work because of our insane schedule.

    Advice to Management

    I really have no advice, I do not like this company, thier values, or the amount of damage they reap on our fragile ecosystem.

    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.
