I worked at Peabody Energy

Pros

Compensation, benifits and company stability

Cons

Peabody Energy values education over experience more than most companies and it is therefore more difficult to get a trainee job or advance without the education.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give people who have performed well a written letter of thanks. For example, someone who has come up with an idea to redesign a piece of equipment and then followed through on fabricating that idea resulting in a substancial financial savings to the company should receive a written letter of commendation at the very least. Not just a verbal thank you and pat on the back.

    Pros

    Allows for a good work environment

    Cons

    Compensation for engineers is much less than competition. Their salaries are approximately $10,000 under competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not micro manage employees. Allow them to do their jobs.

    I have been working at Peabody Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I honestly can not think of any thing positive about this company

    Cons

    Over managed.too many people in office jobs at the mine site not contributing to an efficient operation,incompetent mine managers.Peabody say safety is first priority but in my experience production is the first priority.Peabody is mining under Sydney's water catchment area and is knowingly damaging the water quality going into our dams.they will one day leave Australia and take all the profits back to the USA and we will be left to clean up its damage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell your Australian assets now and leave Australia
