A perfect summer internship that any student can ask for where he/she will get involved with projects that's making huge impact on company's overall performance.

It was a good place to kick start my career. Expected more from the management. They really treat you like a proper employee even when you are an intern and give you valuable work.

Stable company with very bright executives. Poor culture in that HR discriminates - there's an "us" and "them" mentality and HR encourages this. Old practices, staff are disposable. Excellent work life balance. Poor IT supports and equipment to work with, lack of processes and practices. Could be improved.
Pros
Work life balance, salaries are excellent.
Cons
Vacation allowance is low, staff are allowed to shout and yet and fight openly with one another

I'm enjoying to work at Kinross Toronto office, it's very challenging and diverse environment with the good management and strong, people oriented enterprise culture.
Pros
Nice people, interesting work, new technology implementation is quick here, good pay and benefits
Cons
Security team is small and too stretch to cover global incident responses, need more people to support all implemented controls

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.

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)

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.

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.

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
