Phelps Dodge was my worst nightmare

Current Employee - Research Engineer in Safford, AZ
Current Employee - Research Engineer in Safford, AZ
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

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 Management

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 as an intern

    Pros

    The office in downtown Phoenix is gorgeous. Even though the company has thousands employees around the world, there's an interesting sense that all are united as a singular team. This is especially true within MIS working with remote sites.

    Cons

    Compensation within MIS could be better. As an intern, you get some perks like reimbursement for public transportation, but registration in these and other programs takes forever.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation within MIS could be better. For such a large company, it would be nice to hear more internal updates on progress besides shareholder calls.
