    I have been working at Walter Industries

    Pros

    Smaller public company
    Good company is you are quiet and "go with the flow"

    Cons

    Good ole boy network; no opportunities for women or minorities; management cares only about mining not business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The business side needs to be focused on processes, procedures, etc. The company mines well but as an operating company it is horrible. Promote people based on talent not who they kiss up to.

    There is a good work life balance

    The company is moving their corporate offices to Birmingham.
    Not too many people at corporate seem to want to go.

    Better comunication with the employees. It will be a vastly different company once the relocation to Birmingham Alabama is completed.

    I have been working at Walter Industries

    Pros

    Freedom to appply many different creative solutions. The culture their is the type of atmosphere that is very helpful with my profession. I am also allowed to approach most projects with a level of say so.

    Cons

    Lack of understanding from within about the different roles neccesary to accomplish certain task. Also having to act as an administrater 30 - 40 percent of the time slows my engagements down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a CIO who has somewhat been in the trenches. Allow the department too carefully choose employees with different specialized skills to create more effective teams. Seperate development and administration for the power users who are constantly engaged in projects and enforce end users who are primarily the customer of solutions, to become more involved in all stages of projects, and not just when something is working properly.

    Pros

    The best safety program ever. From top management down to front lines. They are serious about safety. Money and benefits are good. Management setting up mines to be power house in market to come. Well run. Security in job.

    Cons

    A lot of hours worked. Coal mines have a certain amount of danger.
