    Pros

    Due to the nature of the contracts SunCoke has with its customers, they should generate a profit from operations for the duration of the contracts. Therefore, a candidate for employment should be less concerned about the near term survival of the company.

    Cons

    The company had been vibrant to work for because of the terrific growth and the individual freedom granted to achieve the growth. Even before the move to Lisle, IL from Knoxville, TN the new management had been systematically eliminating anyone who had been part of that growth. Under the new management the company became stagnant and oppressive of new ideas or ways to grow. The new management repopulated the ranks with employees without any of the technical or industry specific knowledge required to advance the cokemaking technology and stimulate growth. A candidate for employment should be willing to work in a very top down command and control environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with respect and value their ideas instead of looking for people to blame for the next problem. Give individuals the ability and support to get the job done without fear of reprisal.

    I worked at SunCoke Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Summer Hours were nice and coffee and tea and the water machine.

    Cons

    Forced culture. Rude coworkers. Spread too lead and leaders dont have any idea what is going on so the people really working hard dont get direction or credit for the effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up and change you culture to be all inclusive departmentally. Friendly, open and respectable conversations at all levels that are genuine. Communication needs to improve overall. Stronger people are needed in most roles to not cheat the talent that is there of a great working environment.
