Productive, life balanced
JDE Business System Analyst - Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 November 2015
Productive and demanding work environment, but life balanced and with supportive Management. Some of the "perks" include gym (with showers and lockers) on company's premises, reserved for Kinross employees only.
Kinross is a company at which one can expand his/her knowledge and connect to or befriend some great and interesting people.
Pros
Good compensation, opprortunity to learn, gym, free snacks and pop, pleasent office environment
Cons
Unpredictable market (e.g. low price of gold)

Poor management leads to disenfranchised employees
Mining Engineer (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 January 2017
Every mid-level manager and above needs intense managerial training. Very little, if any professional development offered to young employees. Very cushy corporate jobs, but extremely intense site-based jobs.

Lacks structure and has poor data management systems. Too much turn-over of staff.
Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Corporate12 November 2013
Coworkers were great, a typical day would be from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm at night, always needed to be responding to e-mail, weekends included. Managers were very much micro-managing. Always seemed to be responding to urgent requests vs. what is really important to the business.
Pros
good salaries/benefits
Cons
No work life balance

Good compensation package and salary. Good opportunities to work abroad (good and bad) but this makes life/work balance a little difficult. Job culture needs improvement.

Global Recruiting Lead - Global Talent Acquisition (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON11 December 2013
Good compensation and benefits, great office environment with Gym, lounge, kitchens, etc.

Management is in disarray and the company cannot settle the ship. Palatable conflict between corporate and regional accountabilities.

Manager, Resource Geology (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 April 2015
The job was good, with plenty of exposure to new software and challenges. I essentially worked as an internal consultant. This was to save the company money. Thus although the company was good the overall object was to save money at the employees expense. It was a buyers market and Kinross used the market to their own advantage.
Pros
Location next to Union station
Cons
No pension or leave. Fixed term employee.
