I worked at Alpha Natural Resources full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Care about their employees with training programs and good benefits. Decent pay scales for the work. No a sweat shop.

Cons

Too heavy on the G&A side. IT is way too large. Employ far too many consultants. Communications within the company are weak.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the consultants. Engage your talented people better. Top management does not really understand what goes on in the trenches.

    Pros

    You can get away with not doing anything, really. At least at the union operation. LMM. Great benefits, good chance to advance.

    Cons

    You have to do the job of all those people who get away with not doing anything. No 401k offered, only a union pension, which is unacheivable, since it takes 10 years to earn it and there are only 3 years of life left at the mine. Low pay as compared to other mines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    talk to each other. stop trying to screw the other shifts.
