    I worked at Newcrest Mining full-time

    Pros

    - Exposure to a number of very different working environments - Easy access to capital - There are good eggs here if you can find them... The down side being that they are getting shat on daily by those feeding their own agenda.

    Cons

    - Easy access to capital - Operating in silo's - Inexperienced lower level management disregarding the importance of getting the basics of mining right. Results in finger pointing at other work groups when things fall in a heap on a daily basis. - Poor talent retention - Industry and society rejects are collecting here.
