    Pros

    Highly profitable business operation. Field operations very competent.

    Cons

    Corporate management - especially CFO - have no management skills. IT is placed under the CFO's charge and he should be let go for "dereliction of duty"

    Advice to Management

    Take IT away form the CFO and it will be able to become a viable area to work in at Alliance. The CFO is a figurehead for the investment community and has no business managing people.

    I have been working at Alliance Resource full-time (More than 5 years)

    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

    Enjoyed working with co-workers. Great benefits. Good work environment.

    Cons

    Be ready to deal with politics. It is best to maintain low profile.

    Unfortunately upper management doesn't know what they are doing.

    Use to be a family atmosphere!!! One of the best places I ever worked. But that changed with new management at mine level. They ran off the good workers, left only there yes men.

    Cons

    Bad Management at Mine Level
    Looks to pass blame to employees instead of management

    Advice to Management

    Take care of our miners. Get rid of the yes men

    Pay, benefits WERE a definite plus...however, I have heard from current employees that this has drastically changed.

    Cons

    Poor relations with employees and their needs (to do their job.) Fear used to motivate, bully tactics.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are your greatest asset, not how many tons of coal you have mined this quarter.
