    I have been working at Freeport-McMoRan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great environment, great pay and good experience for beginning engineers.

    Cons

    Promoting is slow and since it is a mining company, locations are in the middle of nowhere. That can make social life hard/boring.

    I worked at Freeport-McMoRan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I had amazing opportunities, career growth and development. I found that if you work hard and have a great attitude, you will be promoted and go far with the company. I had a great career with Freeport, and I truly appreciate all of the opportunities that I was given.

    Cons

    Being on call 24/7 and having to relocate many times to be promoted to upper level management roles.

    Advice to Management

    Really take the time to see what your great leaders within your company are wanting. If you want to keep good people, really try to dive into what they want for their future.

    Pros

    Benefits
    It can help if you are starting your career

    Cons

    If you are not a mining related major you won't see much personal progress. Need to be willing to relocate often to advance your career, however most work sites are in very remote areas.
    Management is people who has survived the industry cycles and want to do things the way they have always done it. Find a manager who protects you and you do not need to worry.

    Very safety oriented place, company's work culture is really good, work-life balance is amazing.

    May have to look at the tower program, and the performance of the supervisors.
