Current Employee - Research Engineer in Safford, AZ

I have been working at Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold

Pros

They hire new engineers out of school and give them opportunity to start their career.

Cons

This applies only for Phelps Dodge (before the buy out)
1. Insane management that mentally torments employees
2. Employees are forced to put in illegal long hours daily
3. Managers threaten and scream (really loud) at the employees
4. Managers snoop on the private life of the employees and use that to punish them at work
5. Incompetent management that takes lots of time off during the day for their private chores

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are many people who left Phelps Dodge because of the obstruction at work. Even HR did not help us. You must have higher power to control those tyrants.

    I worked at Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Location was interesting for someone who has never worked in a mine before. Great pay, great benefits. Training was lengthy and involved.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to know what they want. Human resources seems to run the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management didn't seem to know how to create trust. Communication was lacking. Managers would act on information without verifying whether or not it was true or had merit.
