Mixed experience here. Positives was the experienced to work in a new industry, in the Arctic, most of the people I met, but it was later outweighted with heavy downsides. AEM Meliadine was the first place where regulations and laws were to be overlooked - using non-qualified, non-licensed people to do regulated work. I came under fire for touring the safety guy from my supervisor, general supervisor and later superintendent, obviously not a good thing. Lots of other preventive maintenance things or imperative repairs were wrote off until later disaster to boost balance sheet and individual management figures (general supervisor, superintendent, in my case). Eventually it become a depressing place to work. Too many insider hires and friends promoting friends. Had to face anti-Mideast hostilities here and came under fire for complaining to management about that. Becoming a non-pluralistic work envionrment. AEM needs to cleaning house in my opinion at Meliadine in Site Services and possibly elsewhere or risk a large financial loss.

At first the place looks nice and dandy. People seem not to care about you and Finance is a the worst, they don't even acknowlege you when they walk by. Fake smile. People don't seem to care about other people. HR is very unorganized and no communication what so ever. They put you on contract and treat you as you don't exist. HR has a very poor management. People come and go and HR does not let the people that work there know who are the new people or when people leave the company, people don't seems to know where these people are. You ask HR and they pretend they don't know. HR treats people very poorly and absolutely NO Communication. Its terrible. They seem to be nice at first until you get to know them.

Ils ont beaucoup d'emplois comme contracteur, alors tu es pour eux un employée à rabais et tu n'as pas aucun avantage ni de sécurité d'emploi. Ils ont un très beau slogan pour les valeurs de l'entreprise mais ne suivent pas du tout leur propre valeur (dans notre département). C'est dommage parce que c'est vraiment une super belle entreprise et les coéquipiers sont super.
Pros
Nice people great work family balance .
Cons
Alot of job as contractors and no job security

This organization is led by individuals focused solely on self promotion, skilled at saying all the right things, but ignorant and uninterested in the ways of actually following through on those words.

Generally friendly and positive work environment. But, needs more structure across the board. Work life balance is challenging, depending on position.

self employment and being your own boss is great, but the only thing about my self employment is that its only seasonal in the winter. Meaning i need another source of income. Time to pursue a full time employment.
Pros
being own boss
Cons
only seasonal during winters

When I first begun working for Agnico Eagle, I was enthusiastic and excited with all these job opportunities. I made sure I was at work on time, made sure I did what was required. But was grieved that they had not accepted my reasons to leave for awhile and go back to work for them.
Pros
Good food, good pay.
Cons
Bad communication and no care.
