I worked at Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Work with friendly people everyday, be involved in great projects small and large, support American mined metals, earn a great wage along with awesome benefits, tremendous opportunity for growth.

Cons

At the mine site where I worked, there was no clear cut path for growth and development. Department leadership was not very experienced and seemed to receive little support from upper management. Several engineers left as a result.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Plan ways to develop your technical talent and staff through mentoring and consistent leadership.

    Focus on increasing the communication throughout all tiers of the organization - great ideas exist in some of the lower level employees but are frequently suppressed by the voice of upper management
