    I worked at Arch Coal (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent people and work environment, very motivated and very ethical workplace. I enjoyed my time there greatly. A very strong work ethic.

    Cons

    The Company has suffered greatly due to the current and political climate. They will struggle for the next year, but should return to full strength in 2017. Sadly, they have lost some great people.

    Advice to Management

    Hang in there guys. The current clowns that run this country cannot last forever. Sooner or later, this country will need power to build things again.
