    Pros

    FCX lets you do your job, holds you accountable to do it and provides all the support you could ask for.

    Cons

    Need to rely more on established systems and processes of the EPCM firms they hire rather than trying to reinvent the wheel!

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work boys!!

    Pros

    Good bonus and fair compensation. Profitable company with good future outlook. Some positive elements of corporate culture

    Cons

    Their local management in some locations is autocratic and unethical. Their ethic hotline is not worth anything. They fire people that made complains in good faith.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect

    Pros

    They have good pay and benefits. The people you work with are okay . They have started a training program in Bagdad now.

    Cons

    The management is out to get you most of the time. They are all looking to move up to up and don't care how they do it. The morale is really bad.

    Advice to Management

    Main office should look in to what really is going on. They all cover for each other.

    Pros

    I loved the culture of Freeport. It was laid back and friendly with the best safety focus I've ever seen in an organization.

    Cons

    The pay was lower than I had hoped and living in a mine town was tough having come from a bigger city.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a stronger training program for the interns. Set a company wide program and system for the internships.

    Pros

    Endless training opportunities. People are super friendly. You get to learn so much even if you are just an intern. People are actually willing to spend time teaching you even if they are busy.

    Cons

    It's kind of hard to living in a mining town if you are single or a fresh grad. It takes time to get used to the living conditions.

    Pros

    Great place to learn and get educated about a trade

    Cons

    The work environment is messy. Too many politics in this place... it's not what you know...it's who you ____

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the good olé boy system, realize who is doing work

    Pros

    A great ambitious company that is very competitive in a tough industry. Compensation is very nice, and pllenty of opportunity to climb the ranks if you work for it.

    Cons

    Locations aren't bad but are limited to South-west. Corporate offices are very top-heavy but they are good at what they do. IT help system is very problematic and slow.

    Advice to Management

    Management is very good, but remember your workers in the field
