    I worked at Newmont Mining full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule allowing me to work from home when I needed to. Good benefits with lots of paid time off. Nice facility to work in.

    Cons

    Direction comes from too many people and it was hard to figure out who was really my boss. Seems there's few opportunities for women even with good credentials.

    Advice to Management

    Direction should come from one boss and not matrix managers. Give more women opportunities and you'll see a big difference.

    Pay and benefits package are outstanding, company seems well organized atleast from the bottom. Safety is stressed for all operations. They are understanding of military obligations.
