I have been working at Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Complex mine and you can learn alot.

Cons

if you are liked by management you can get all the opportunities you want while other are left behind. Warning! Racism exist at all level at the Morenci mine especially if you work at the engineering office. If you are Black this is not a place to venture.

If you are hard working you can learn alot on you own even if you are not trained or developed by the management team there. Only the liked light skinned get opportunities to grow and develop.

They dont respect engineers here especially if you are international or on H1B. Run form this place if you can.

Advice to Management

Be fair and open to every human being u deal with. Stay in line with corporate polices when dealing with ppl careers or life.

    Pros

    Very positive employee benefit package. Compensation structure is very good. Side benefits like commuting assistance, lunches, free drinks and event tickets are a ncie touch.

    There is plenty of work that is interesting and challenging.

    Cons

    Due to the bonus structure in the exempt and senior management ranks there seems to be some misdirection of efforts and projects. The structure is based not on Management by Objectives or clear expectation and employment reviews, but on a group of directors saying yes or no to each bonus. So, if you do not interact with the directors, or if you do not jump up to appease them and their whims, it hurts your chances for a good bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Instil a more formalized annual employee review process. Add structure and clear expectations so that we can move forward on the things that the company deems importatnt, not the weekly whims of the directors.

    I worked at Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    the pay is quite good at this company. salaries are very competitive and advancement is available if you work hard.

    Cons

    Everyone thinks you are gunning for their job. willingness to teach is essentially non-existent. Finding a good mentor is simply a struggle.
