      Pros

      Safety is number one in this culture. The pay is very competitive and opportunities abound for those who want to work for it. I have worked for many mid and large sized companies and Freeport has provided be and my family with the best work life balance and benefits.

      Cons

      Some of the locations can be a bit remote, but that comes with working in the materials and mining world. They do try to make living in their remote locations bearable with added amenities, but in the end many mines are still remote.

      Pros

      Benefits, bonuses, safety culture and some training.

      Cons

      If you don’t fit into the good ol boys club, you will become a whipping boy. Promotions and raises are based on how good you suck up to management, not actual skill and workmanship, only these people will receive the resources needed to do their job but even then they will just pretend to do it because the frontline supervisors never check anyones work.
