    Pros

    Amazing benefits package, great pay and incentives, operated by a very well lead corporate team.

    Cons

    6 days a week, all the over time you can want even when you don't want it. Rotating shifts and limited home life and next to no upward mobility

    Former Intern - Engineering Intern in Claysville, PA

    I worked at CONSOL Energy as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Got to see every aspect of their coal mining ops. Management was very laid back in my experience with the interns. Pay was good, 21/hr.

    Cons

    None really. Possible long hours if underground, but that just means more overtime pay.

    Pros

    Some great managers, motivators, and drivers.

    Cold calculating upper management lacks clear direction and will turn on you in a second without question.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use some common sense and get informed before making rash decisions.

    Pros

    Good benefits and office. Promotes Safety.

    Cons

    Old school with man oriented environment. Future of company uncertain-layoffs, selling off mines and closing branch offices. Shrinking-not growing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible and alert employees of company changes prior to having to read about it on the internet.

    Pros

    nice building, enjoyed working with some of my coworkers

    Cons

    nepotism and favoritism thrive, management was extremely disorganized and afraid to fire people who deserve it (instead they fire people who make "too much" money but have no power), no consequences for unprofessional behavior even when it negatively impacts work, empty promise of growth within the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get organized, fire people who are unprofessional and don't perform the job well

    Disregard for rules, processes and ethics

    I worked at CONSOL Energy full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and competitive salary. Human resources department is one of the best assets.

    Cons

    There are a lot of men with power complexes running departments--in particular, the public relations department. They tout that they're moving in a new strategic direction, but have no idea what direction that is. There is no leadership or mentoring offered to new employees--if it weren't for the HR department, I wouldn't have known where the coffee or the restrooms were located. For a large energy producer, their PR department is being run very poorly. They don't seem up to speed on PR industry best practices, and the managers seem to have a very blatant disregard for rules, processes and ethical standards. I was very disappointed with my experience and expected better from a household name like CONSOL.
