    Pros

    Good benefits and office. Promotes Safety.

    Cons

    Old school with man oriented environment. Future of company uncertain-layoffs, selling off mines and closing branch offices. Shrinking-not growing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible and alert employees of company changes prior to having to read about it on the internet.

    I have been working at CONSOL Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    CONSOL has offered an excellent learning opportunity for an employee brand new to the oil and gas industry.

    Cons

    CONSOL is so new that don't have many people that are very experienced. Trying to learn from someone who has 10-15 years of experience is nearly impossible. Salaries are also less competitive than the industry standard.

    Pros

    Committed to Safety
    Growing Gas Company
    Job Security

    Cons

    Lean Organization on the Gas Side

    Does not do enough to keep top performers

    Some Mid-Level management has a lot to be desired; Not Held Accountable: to worried about out doing other operating areas over the other, which creates inconsistency.

    Work/Life Balance not the best

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step away from the coal mentality and organizational structure.

    I worked at CONSOL Energy full-time

    Pros

    Training, Safety, and Bonuses are great. Some managers are there to help you succeed others look for you to fail.

    Cons

    The hiring process is not fair. If you don't have a degree higher than actually needed or know someone in that department chances are very slim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your due diligence in the HR department and get rid of the shady characters that think they know what they are doing.
