Pros

Smaller public company Good company is you are quiet and "go with the flow"

Cons

Good ole boy network; no opportunities for women or minorities; management cares only about mining not business

Advice to Management

The business side needs to be focused on processes, procedures, etc. The company mines well but as an operating company it is horrible. Promote people based on talent not who they kiss up to.

    Pros

    I loved my time at Walter Energy. I was employed there for 7 years as an underground electrician. Work was dirty, hot during the summer and cold during the winter. I made a lot of good friends, and learned more than I can even remember. If they ever get back on their feet. I would highly recommend them.

    Cons

    Other than the fact that you are spending a good portion of your life underground, none really. The six days a week gets old, but the money makes up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, good times come and they go. The ground level management at #7 west is outstanding.

    Pros

    Relatively small company with close knit relationships at all levels

    Cons

    Many ideas from external sources are not accepted. Strong bias for insider knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Once past the bankruptcy issue, new blood with new ideas would be helpful.
