    Pros

    Some great people sprinkled within organization, very safety focused.

    Cons

    There was no regard for accountability or decision making within the structure of the company. You can't rule with an iron fist and expect people to be happy and stay.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and like people not commodities.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people I worked with...? Pay was decent.

    Cons

    I was over qualified for my position which made it boring. My work also went above what was needed and it didn't feel appreciated. Other people got promoted even though they weren't qualified. None of the offices I visited seemed to be enjoyable places.

    Advice to Management

    Have managers who know how to manage. Promote those who deserve it.

    I worked at CONSOL Energy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great to work for if your young, out of college and plan to work for a short period time. Never give your direct input or feedback to the supervisors. They are the most intelligent beings on the planet. Ensure you comply and adhere to all corporate policies and don't share any family background with anyone. Stay to yourself and be ready to look for employment elsewhere just in case you don't fit into the culture.

    Cons

    Do not work here if your of any ethnic decent.

    Pros

    There really wasn't any pros, except it paid OK for the area I lived in, but compared to industry it was the lowest. The regular staff was great.

    Cons

    The leaders only care about the leaders and taking care of themselves. They keep pulling all the perks that company once offered. For such a large company, there aren't any opportunities. The company layoffs or restructures twice a year and is super secretive when they do it. Leadership is not good when it comes to their own staff.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging, start leading your people, fire Nick as CEO. The man is incompetent as a leader and only cares about his own wealth and investors. If you really want to hire Millennials, then change the corporate culture and learn to be a truly innovative company.

    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

    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 Management

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