NOC Manager (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – March 5, 2016
Newmont chose to outsource corporate IT and since I had just gone thru 4 years of terrible outsourcing contracts (Newmont paid millions of dollars to get out of contracts) and 2 years of new leadership and insourcing where the new Newmont leadership admitted it had nothing to do with customer service and everything to do with costs.
Leadership team is not people friendly and there is always the threat of outsourcing
Foreman (Current Employee) – Elko, NV – January 14, 2016
I start the day by lining out, a 40 man crew. I learned that communication is a very important tool. Working well with upper management is a key. My co-works were a pleasure to work with, sometimes challenging but enjoyable. The hardest part of the was to keep ahead of the crew to keep them working. The most enjoyable part of the job is to see everyone going home the same way they came to work.
Very busy at work only when I go for a coffee break for thirty minutes.
Control Room Supervisor (Current Employee) – Eastern, KY – March 10, 2016
My typical working day is very busy and serious as well as sensitive. As a shift Supervisor in a Gold Mine, there isn't time to play because the mine has over one hundred and sixty cameras on site for operators and myself to monitor so least careless one plays can affect the entire working shift.
I have learn a lot when it comes to management because they ensure that workers needs are met to boost their morale to work well. On the other hand, co-workers try merge ideas to increase productivity of the company.
There isn't a specific thing i can say is hard about the job because i am always prepared and eager to give my best as a supervisor.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when bullion is done successfully without any qualms.
Thirty minutes coffee break and health care services, Holiday Bonuses, Overtime allowances, Family leave, sick leave and annual leave as well as monthly gratuities.
great compensation with learning opportunities but poor morale with ongoing layoffs
Energy Data Analyst and Coordinator (Former Employee) – Greenwood Village, CO – December 8, 2015
great compensation - salary & benefits, good opportunities to grow & learn, but poor morale with ongoing layoffs. duplicity of responsibilities leads to high overhead and confusion for moving projects ahead, yet critical departments and positions are being eliminated while those accounting positions remain
learning opportunities, great pay & benefits
some individual dpts mismanaged, others seem to compete vs each other
Regional IT Procurement Coordinator (Former Employee) – Elko, NV – March 9, 2016
The company was all about numbers and not about the people. I found it to be very cold and nonpersonal. There were a lot of work and the department I was in was unorganized and not skilled in the tasks at hand.
Job was good, hardest part was gate watch during winter. Co worker was very rude and tried everything to make me quit. most enjoyable was when i got off to see my family. i learned if your upper management wont help find a better job.

Regional Manager - Strategic Planning (Former Employee) – Greenwood Village, CO; Ghana – April 1, 2016
If you are a geologist, metallurgist or some other "ist" in the mining industry than this is a great company to work for.
Pros: Good compensation package Lots of learning opportunities Top-notch industrial technical expertise
Cons (may have changed to the better now): lack of coherent organizational structure work-life balance very much a relationship driven organization cultural and gender diversity was an issue
Advice to Management: Streamline work processes and clarify roles and responsibilities among departments, regions and consequently positions. Matrix organization is not an excuse to have too many overlaps and even more gaps in responsibilities which make increasingly difficult to move projects forward. Do something about the "chiefs" to "Indians" ratio - so many "directors" who never managed a single person let alone departments and/or functions.
Good compensation package, lots of learning opportunities
lack of coherent organizational structure, work-life balance, very much a relationship driven organization, cultural and gender diversity
