    I worked at Molycorp as a contractor (more than an year)


    decent compensation, possible long term career if Mountain Pass plant could be made operational


    The most technically incompetent and unethical organization under the sun. Spent $1.5B+ to build Project Phoenix , misrepresented to investors that they knew what they were doing technically, but eliminated the technical staff. Fired the entire mining department when the drilling program didn't produce the desired expanded resource results. Operations is a bunch of clueless mining folks with chemistry or metallurgy degrees that don't understand the process and lie to Sr. management about everything and blame everyone but themselves. Stock is down 70+% in a year and they have no idea how to identify or prioritize the projects necessary to succeed. Anyone decent that can escape already has. This will go down as Enron II after bankruptcy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the entire Mountain Pass management team, especially former FMC'ers. Hire a Sr. VP of technology with authority to make all capital project decisions and hire a team of experienced chemical engineers.
