    I worked at ASARCO full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay for lazy guys, lots of vacation/time off, if you get in with the right people you can sail on to retirement with little work. It is a good stepping stone.

    Cons

    Management only cares about impressing those above so they can climb the corporate ladder; you get ahead by who you know not what you do.
    Skills, hard work and results does not matter; leaders are clueless as to what subordinates actually do; leaders don't treat all team members equally; development goals are absent as you are forced to put down what your leader wants you to develop and not what you actually want to develop for the benefit of the company.

    leaders/mgrs will stop you from moving within the company if they don't want you to leave the dept. even if it's on your development goals and the company long term goals. Some departments will hold employees to staying 3 yrs while other depts will allow you to move in less time which clearly shows which managers genuinely care about supporting their people and not hindering development; uneven workload and no recognition for extra effort; lots of lip service with little action/things take way too long to change/progress/be completed; technology is 25 years behind competition.

    There are more wrong decisions, more lazy employees, more favoritism in hiring, firing, promoting and in vendors selection. Competition makes a lot of effort to motivate and retain their good employees while Asarco does the opposite by allowing good employees to leave for better chances and opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the dead weight. Managers need to care more about their subordinates and stop focusing on themselves. Listen to what your people are saying as they know the job, you don't.
    Things need to change significantly in order to keep good employees. One quality employee is often better than ten lazy guys who spend all day in their offices.
    Think big; hire big brains to solve your big problems because there are more problems to solve than copper to mine in that place.
