    Pros

    Excellent benefits, especially the health insurance - second to none. Very competitive wages. Continually focused on employee's safety. Room for advancement if you apply yourself.

    Cons

    Excessive documentation of your almost every move - The paper trails are endless...

    Advice to Management

    Continue on as is, with the exception of considering the elimination of some of the massive paperwork

    Pros

    Efficient, corporate based engineering and mine planning allows resources to be shared with all plants in a regional zone while plant management is focused generally on their single facility to reach their shared corporate goals

    Cons

    While efficient, corporate based engineering and mine planning allows resources to be shared with all plants in a regional zone and plant management is focused generally on their single facility to reach their shared corporate goals are usually classified as a pro, micro-management is now to the point they are a con as well.

    Advice to Management

    Give more control back to the plant managers

    Pros

    Good benefits, good benefits, good benefits until you retire then nothing,

    Cons

    Untrustworthy management, seniority not recognized, shift work not recognized, no shift differential, no room to advance, don't care about employees if though they will say different.

    Advice to Management

    Show they appreciate long term loyal workers, pay shift differential and overtime benefits to non-PHD's, don't lie on reviews, don't show favoritism.
