    Pros

    More than 18.000 employees and 10 work centers makes any challenge in this mining company one of the biggest ones in your career. Great salary and benefits. Inspirational CEO Nelson Pizarro, incredible leader, connected with all the teams and with great global and national influence.

    Cons

    Hierarchical and traditional, slow and burocratic. The divisions don’t understand the role from corporate, has a lack of connection with corporate teams. Lack of inspirational leadership.

    Advice to Management

    They should change top leaders that have bad behaviors, discriminate and don’t reflect what the Company declares as their values. The VPs should be change so that new generations and better gender balance can move Codelco towards a culture of innovation, and a mindset more align with the new trends
