    Pros

    Strong corporate values that put people first which is truly amazing for a mining company. The company offers a culture of excellence and those who work at Goldcorp are among the best and brightest in their field.

    Cons

    Goldcorp is a very entrepreneurial company and constantly evolving and changing. This type of environment is not for everyone and requires a good dose of ambiguity tolerance.

    Pros

    Goldcorp has a great position in the industry, being a industry leader Goldcorp takes great effort to provide a safe, healthy and profitable working environment for employees. Goldcorp encourages transfers between different working sites and there are many different carrers such as miners tradesmen, mill technicians, refiners, assay technicians, training, HR, engineering, secretarial, mechanical, electrical, construction, carpentry, and many more. Goldcorp offers numerous employee education and improvement programs to inspire leadership and growth of people. Goldcorp also pays competitive wages.

    Cons

    From my experience some of the negative aspects could be the remote location of some mine sites. requiring the employee to work on a two week on two week off schedule, (which is also a good thing for some people.) Mining is also not the easiest of jobs. Underground operations also have a higher risk factor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I enjoy working at Goldcorp. I really encourage our senior executives to continue the strategy being put in place. Continue being open and approachable. Having been able to meet many of the corporate executives in the company I work for, is one of the many reason I would never work anywhere else.

    I have been working at Goldcorp

    Pros

    It is a growing company with lots of opportunities.
    We are treated fairly and with respect
    Our compensation and benefits are probably best in class.
    Goldcorp represents all that is positive and challenging in the mining industry: A wide variety of geographic locations, leading edge technology, many different cultures and constantly changing production challenges.

    Cons

    The senior leadership team is distant, inaccessible and seemingly not interested in the rest of the company.
    Other than that, we really cannot complain!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide us with your thoughts on where we are, where are going and what you think makes Goldcorp a great company. Providing this type of info only to investors DOES NOT COUNT!!!!
    It is clear that you are not a unified team. Please rectify that.

    Pros

    The opportunity to dig into the operational life of the Merrill-Crowe plant.

    Geographical isolation, however, that is the norm and not the exception in mining industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To meet western or european standards and increase leave times.
