    Pros

    Great company, with excellent benefits. Maintains advances in technology to remain ahead of our competitors. Strategic with investments to reduce strain on operations as the market shifts.

    Cons

    Reduction in workforce as the market for coal continues to decline. Currently in a defensive winless battle with being over regulated by Federal agencies.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure cuts are being made throughout regional offices, in lieu of operations only.

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice people, stable company with good CEO leadership

    Cons

    Company has a tendency to look the other way with bad employees. The HR department is a good example. You have to be related to or be friends with one or two people to get a job. The company at large has a similar feel

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people from outside. No one feels they can say anything about a bad employee who only got a job because they know someone
