    I have been working at Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold full-time for less than a year


    Excellent benefits with competitive pay, lots of locations to gain experience from. Good at keeping salaried employees from excessive working hours.


    Good-ole-boys mentality at local management level. Politics leads to a high turnover rate for those unable to work past it. Training rotations could be drastically improved, easy to get stuck in one position.

    Positive Outlook
