    I worked at Westmoreland Coal

    Pros

    Most of the employees are great, decent pay and benefits, history of the organization is one to be proud of.

    Cons

    As the corporate executives changed so did the treatment of employees. Everything became about the executives. Such a shame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change out the majority of corporate leadership in order to return to being an ethical company.
