Good company in a difficult industry

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Bristol, VA

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

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

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

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Alpha Natural Resources full-time for more than 3 years


Pros: You can get away with not doing anything, really. At least… 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,… Advice to Senior Management: talk to each other. stop trying to screw the other… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

Pros: Employee safety is key at Alpha. Employees are treated… Cons: I think all jobs should be posted and everyone should be interviewed… Advice to Senior Management: Keep the same level of safety and you'll thrive. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
