Even though it was a demanding job, the culture on site makes it bearable

Great company where personal growth is en encouraged and celebrated. Even though the work as an engineer is demanding, the people culture makes it bearable. Working with the different departments (esp operations) can be challenging since the department is more production driven


Healthcare, great benefits, bonuses


Work life balance, since work is on situated in remote location

Productive workplace

Newmont is a fun place to work because their safety culture is second to none. There is an inclusive atmosphere at work where everyone freely expresses his/her opinion. Processes are sometimes too bureaucratic though.


Solid safety culture


Bureaucratic processes

Production over people

I found the people to be the best and worst thing about the place. On the one hand, I made friends that I remain in regular contact with long after leaving the company. on the other hand, I found some of the permanent staff in my department would nark on people immediately instead of having a simple conversation on the correct action for that job and they would do it all for like an extra 3-5% on their safety KPI's. There's a lot of unnecessary meetings, I found management's open-door policy was really just a saying to look like they cared. I would work here again only for the fact that it was close to Perth.

Just Like Working in a Kindergarten

They treat their workers as if they were children. Everything is monitored, there are cameras everywhere, including in the mobile equipment. People are micro-managed to the point where they are too frightened to even make an on the spot decision about anything, no matter how trivial.There's an old saying that if you treat people like idiots for long enough, eventually, they will act like idiots. That's exactly what happened to most of the people I worked with at Newmont. They were so beaten down by the work culture that most of them were incapable of doing anything without getting on a 2-way radio and getting permission from a supervisor.


Good work roster, permanent rooms, free health cover.


Toxic work environment.

Great Crews/Terrible Management

Great crews to work with, the management is rife with nepotism. During my interview I asked about the work culture, they said they are trying to change it. However, the lower level/mid-management is very oblivious to behaviors that contribute to worker dissatisfaction and high turnover in the weld group. They don't tell you they want someone who is a mechanic. They expect you to have your own tools for working on the mine trucks. I didn't know this until after I started.
