Culture Changed after Merger
After the Merger my input would not be accurate. Thus I'd like to decline filling this field out before I can move on with my job search. This particular field should NOT be mandatory.

Great growth potential
All the benefits of working for a recognizable industry leader with a lot of room to grow and ability to work on cutting edge projects.

A lot of great people within the organization to help you grow with a supportive environment.


The travel and the hours can be quite challenging at times but the rewards are equal.

Multicultural and diverse
Barrick is world's largest gold producer with operations expanded to all continents from North & South America to Africa and Australia and so a typical day is a day with interaction with individuals from multiple cultural backgrounds and skill sets, offering exposure to interact with various layers of functional and line management at all levels. Barrick has employed one of the top talents across all functions , whether it is accounting, geology, engineering, supply chain or human resources and so there are exceptional opportunities to learn new things across multiple functions everyday.

Since Barrick is a large company with close to 15,000 employees, it sometimes becomes a challenge to make important decisions quickly and this is what is the most enjoyable part as well, as the due-diligence process employed to analyse and make informed decisions offers great opportunities to learn exciting new ideas and insights from operational as well as financial and strategic perspective.

The company is good to work for as I can work with anyone.
Doing all safety checks on all equipment that we use.Contact supervisor if any problems noticed and solve those problems before operating hoist.I loved to work with all those around me.The hardest part of my job was to train people that didn't have the will to be trained.If I thought they were untrainable then I would deem them as such.I loved the responsibility that came with the job in all areas.
Pros
Great overtime, vacations time off, and benifits
Cons
Management.

Good Workplace
Barrick Gold is a good employer but they lack many of the standard processes that larger businesses have. They are still very much a the company that Peter Munk founded 27 yrs ago and still function as a small start up in many respects.
Pros
good people
Cons
bad people management
