    Good Until the End

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefit package is second to none, compensation is fair/above-industry standards, bonuses are fitted to the job that you perform and your ability to execute tasks. Work-life balance is encouraged.

    ConsYou are at the whim of the industry in this company. Upper management team does not seem to be all on the same page, which makes for mixed messages making its way to the workplaces.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    As if they just started the company yesterday

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBig company can keep people employed.

    Cons-top heavy; too many chiefs
    -lack of responsibility on part of supervisors.
    -hires contractors instead of permanent employees so stockholders are not affected.
    -bad communication between mine cross shifts
    -constant changing if chiefs brings in inconsistency. Constant change and no establishment of patterns leads to confusion among employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's going to take a lot of work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place, great people

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMany different sites; however, the people are consistently great. Good benefits and competitive compensation. Fantastic community outreach and support.

    ConsBecause it is such a big company spread across many sites and a large geographic area there is often a lot of "red tape" when pursuing new ideas or ways to improve business operations. That being said it is a fairly typical complaint in the corporate world...

    Advice to Senior ManagementCan be disassociated from their employees; some lack leadership and the ability to encourage new ideas that create positive change and growth within their department.
