    Pros

    Long tenure Company that is going through metal cycle stress. New operational management team will drive company forward

    Need to drive culture change to core mining

    Advice to Management

    New team is great - looking forward to moving the company forward and driving out initatives that add no real value. Back to basics.

    Office culture has shifted from mining veterans to young, high caliber people that creates a collegial atmosphere. Great opportunity to work across functions at Corporate and gain experience with the option to travel worldwide and for expat placement.

    Cons

    Limited work-life balance and political power plays are common.

    Advice to Management

    Offer excellent pay and benefits, which some refer to as golden handcuffs. They should take a note from Netflix on people management to retain top employees and eliminate mediocrity.
