    Pros

    Good working environment with lots of good people. The company does care about the employees and takes care of them. The company takes pride in safety of employees and taking care of the environment. The company has a small feel to it where you seem to know everyone. The upper management does get out in the field to visit with the employees.

    Cons

    Coal is a hard market to be in right now, but company is being very smart. The opportunities to grow within the company seem limited and the company does not seem to be growing. If the company does not get the Asian exports I see little growth in the near future. Pay has been pretty stagnant recently as well.


  6. CPE is an amazing, giving and employee focused company!

    Pros

    They are more then willing to educate. The employees are friendly and welcoming. This company spoils the employees and does the best is can to keep everyone happy.

    Cons

    The political part of the Coal industry gives all coal companies unsteady ground... jobs security is not 100%. The CEO is somewhat a farce, there is a good front put on, like many other companies.
