    Pros

    Overall Drummond Co. treats their employees fairly. There is no complaints about the Co. itself. They try to keep their employees especially their salaried. The pay is adequate and fair.

    Cons

    The upper management at the mine itself tries to micro manage every aspect of the jobs. Especially the mine manager who has not worked underground and tries to run other departments that he is not directly over.

    Advice to Management

    Be more people oriented and stop treating people as though you are superior to them. Allow people the oportunity to prove their worth to the company.
