    Strong business strategy

    I have been working at Peabody Energy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Solid business plan with a good sense of future strategy. For the most part there is a team work atmosphere. Work life balance is good. Most middle management is down-to-earth. Seems the high you go the less approachable.

    Cons

    Can be clicky depending on the area you work in. In certain departments, there can be too much of a micro managed feel. Lack of trust with dedicated employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize employees more often. An adaboy goes a long way every now and again.

  2.  

    Lot of head nodding but many don't want to make decisions.

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, and bonus/stock.

    Cons

    Many pockets of discontent and management does not realize it. Many times middle management doesn't realize it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually spend time with the employees not just in big presentations.
