I have been working at Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold

Pros

Good pay
Good benefits
Some opportunity to develop professional skills
Good people working on the ground
Great place to learn workplace politics and management dynamics
If you like the mining industry this might be a good place for you

Cons

Locations are often remote and can include a lot of driving
Schedules are very challenging
Management can be overly political
Make sure you go in with a degree that directly relates to your career goal because if you don't have one, you'll never get to where you want to go

Advice to ManagementAdvice

First, ditch the Sierrita schedule. There is positively no value in making people live this way, and it is unsafe. Second, college degrees are a necessary step in professional development but, when it comes to promoting people who have years of experience, I don't think it is necessary to exclude them because they lack an education.
