    I worked at Codelco (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent people, there are a lot of operating divisions and there are also opportunities to visit them regularly. The company is the world's largest copper and molybdenum producer.

    Cons

    No comments. The only important thing to know is that the company is 100% state owned and this creates some political pressure in some periods. Is important to understand the nature of the company

    Advice to Management

    Is very important to focus on the projects that will be the basis for the future of the company and the country. Is also important to keep in mind the relation with the workers which has not been easy lately.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    There are a lot of different projects going on at the same time, with high investment so there are plenty of resources.

    Cons

    Promotions barely happen and it takes several years to earn one. You could be a reallye skilled professional, but if you've not been in the company for at least five years, you are not going to be promoted.
