I worked at Peabody Energy

Pros

Benefits, some of the people, looks good on a resume
Good view from the corporate office of the Arch
You can learn all about the way to spin the good a coal company brings to the earth

Cons

Highly Political
You are either in or out, and either way you still could get a knife in your back
Arbitrary decision making process regarding people, performance not part of the equation
Good Ole Boy attitude
HR is a bunch of sharks and will eat their own to survive
Pass the buck and blame, steal the credit for a job well done

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leadership thinks they are running world class company, but in fact it is a world class joke. Like driving a lemon, no one really wants to look under the hood for fear they may be blamed. Senior leadership are like ghosts and have no idea what is going on inside the company. If it was a lemon, they wouldn't ever set foot inside enough to find out.
