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

    Pros

    Excellent training opportunities provided when the company is successful, wonderful and talented co-workers, opportunities for travel, current president/next CEO (Glenn Kellow) is excellent and has the potential to turn the company around

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunities, technical salaries low compared to other mining companies, benefits are being reduced each year due to challenging industry conditions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Liten to your technical people and don't make expensive investments with little chance of profit, solely in the interest of "shareholder growth"
