    Pros

    Went through many iterations of management, the managment team when I left was very much into ensuring that work life balance was seen too. On the benefits side, healthcare/etc was good. But there were little other benefits being offered.

    Cons

    Getting anything accomplished in a reasonable amount of time took some work. There is definitely some in fighting between the field and corporate teams. A great deal of individuals working in corporate did not understand that the money for the company was made from pulling coal out of the ground. This lead to friction.

    Really no upward mobility either.

    Advice to Management

    Send staff into the field more to get a better understanding of what is actually occurring at the mines and field locations.

    Pros

    Peabody was a great employer with highly skilled, hard working people. I enjoyed working with literally everyone I came into contact with.

    Cons

    The industry is going through some brutal years and navigating this period is tough. Peabody is one to watch, as coal forms an essential role in the U.S. and global energy mix. If any pure-play company can weather the period ahead, it will be Peabody. I only hope that the company will emerge ready to compete when the markets recover.
