Current Employee - Strategic Process Manager in Phoenix, AZ

I have been working at Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Large capital base
Profitable Papua mines where gold is produced as a by product and the production cost is nullified into profit.
Lucky to have few excellent resources strategically located world wide minimising the risks
Excellent CFO, Chairman, CEO and the board

Cons

Top management is consisted of mostly people who worked together in PTFI Indonesia. So birds of same feather.
Prejudicial relationship because some of the top executives worked together outside Freeport as well as they worked together in Papua
No framework of performance management - all whims and fancies.
You need to have a God Father
Professional management is just missing from the people who are just below the Board
Lack of transparency
Incomeptent admin officers and clerks are promoted in decision making levels so as to support their managers at all times without any threat .

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please wake up - think PRFI is not the best practice for all mines - Instill professionally qualified managers and JUST NOT YES MEN/WOMEN. They will let sink the company together by not challenging any decision.
Do not promote incompetent clerical staff to senior management level without market testing

Doesn't Recommend

Approves of CEO
