    Pros

    9/80 work schedule - half day Fridays. Professional work environment. 401k plan. Focus on safety & compliance.

    Cons

    - Little opportunity for advancement - Wage scale that is far below industry averages - Layoffs and the aftermath of having the remaining people in a dept forced to pick up their former co-workers work with no incentives to do so - exec management insisting that everything is fine while the stock price nose dives and entire departments are laid off. - No salary increase while the company spends millions on consultants and gimmicks like Positively Consol.

    Advice to Management

    Do the right thing and let the women and children get on the life boats first. Provide comfortable chairs for those in the orchestra who continue to play as the ship takes on water.

    Pros

    Minimal oversight by...for the most part dysfunctional management... allows for a lot self creativity and self managed projects.

    Cons

    It doesn't matter. They have no money to hire anybody.

    Advice to Management

    1. Get a library card. 2. Check out "Management for Dummies". 3. Read said book.

    Pros

    Supportive environment, great pay and benefits, lots of bonuses, very professional

    Cons

    the ways things are approached are inefficient in a lot of cases. You will do a lot of what feels like busy bureaucratic work for pretty much anything you accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    Try to optimize better, allow employees to just work

    Pros

    Adequate compensation and benefits. Some real quality, professional people.

    Cons

    Poor planning and management. Over committing to one drilling geographic area, poor realization of commodity futures, over-hiring. Acquired a great asset in Dominion E&P, completely botched it. Poor management and planning caused extensive lay-offs, not low commodity prices. Keep your resume updated at all times. HR is very sub-standard.

    Advice to Management

    Mimic what EQT is doing while there is still time.

    Pros

    Good people. Good salary. A lot of freedom to do what needs done. Liked the responsibility

    Cons

    Top heavy management. To many layers of management. Need to be able to talk to one guys and get an answer

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the changes being made. Stream line the company to be competitive in the current job market.
