    I have been working at SunCoke Energy

    Pros

    A very dynamic and challenging place to apply any skillset. There are a lot of problems to be solved and a good sum of money allocated to solving problems so it is a real playground for problem solvers. The team is mostly nice and open minded with most managers accessible and welcoming of your ideas.

    Cons

    A lot of the problems are created by missing processes or insufficient management attention toward closing the loop on initiatives. Many things are started but never finished, promised and never delivered. The management is very ambitious but does not know how to efficiently work the team to attain the ambitious goals. This leaves the team working hard and still feeling like they didn't meet the mark. There is not much room for growth. A very flat organization means few opportunities to get promoted. Usually you have to move to get promoted. The middle line managers are always the reason for all the problems. This creates a very high turnover and a constant influx of new people that just don't know enough to progress the company forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prioritize the initiatives and insure the work is completed. Take time to understand the process in place before blaming the managers and adding to the extremely high turnover. Create opportunities for career growth within company structure that does not rely on promotion alone. Focus on technical leaders rather than just "leaders".

    I worked at SunCoke Energy

    Pros

    Great People Doing their Best

    Cons

    Top Heavy - flat / lean organization with very little or no room for career advancement. Project driven company always looking to hire consultants; rather than hiring in more talent (Hire in Chiefs but no Indians).

    No opinion of CEO
