    I worked at Alpha Natural Resources full-time

    Pros

    Most employees are excellent and quickly become like extended family. Fast paced and plenty to keep you busy.

    Cons

    Alpha, like most large corporations, has a disconnect between the executive branch and those below them.

    Advice to Management

    Ask questions to understand the processes involved and the conflicts created from decisions made. An effective manager utilizes their employees experience in dealing with daily operations. There is nothing wrong with an EVP asking an hourly person how a new process or policy is going to effect operations and possible alternatives.
