ProsAlpha Management Committee truly does care about their employees. They are proactively taking steps to survive a very difficult industry while maintaining a strong workforce. They are having to make very difficult decisions but do not do so without great care and thought.

ConsSadly my position was recently eliminated because of the state of the industry. Alpha like other coal companies is a victim of the current administration, the EPA and the influx of natural gas. This means there is a tough road ahead (but if anyone can survive, I believe they can).

Advice to Senior ManagementStay the course, know that your employees appreciate the transparency and know that those who truly care about the organization will always be there. Even when they are no longer employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

ANR is the GREATEST company I've ever worked for and I'm honored to have spent time there.

ProsEmployee safety is key at Alpha. Employees are treated with respect and gratitude for the job they perform.

ConsI think all jobs should be posted and everyone should be interviewed out of fairness for all instead of appointing some and posting others.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the same level of safety and you'll thrive.
