  1. Strong business strategy

    I have been working at Peabody Energy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Solid business plan with a good sense of future strategy. For the most part there is a team work atmosphere. Work life balance is good. Most middle management is down-to-earth. Seems the high you go the less approachable.

    Cons

    Can be clicky depending on the area you work in. In certain departments, there can be too much of a micro managed feel. Lack of trust with dedicated employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize employees more often. An adaboy goes a long way every now and again.

  2. it was a great time doing what I love to do.

    Good employee support. Management for the most part is fair and helpful. This company promotes advancement and In most cases helps you to succeed. Their benefit package is great. Safety is # 1 with them. All in all I loved working form this company.

    Most positions are shift work, meaning you work rotating nights then days. The work days are 13 hours.
