    I worked at Alliance Resource full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good starting pay, good job security as they are a conservative company. Great comatose to work for if you are satisfied with doing the same job for 30 years.

    Cons

    Little room for advancement and not much chance for a pay raise. Management has little knowledge of what goes on in operations.

    Advice to Management

    Look at rewarding long term employees better and try to get more in tune with the operations as there seems to be a disconnect between management and operations.

    Pros

    Great Company Size - Great Team interaction / voice to be heard, likes to stay up on technology.

    It has two main office locations Tulsa, Lexington and all IT work is there for the most part. Some travel probably required in most IT roles to mine sites.

    Keep doing what you are doing - great leadership. Has become a staple in the Tulsa community.

    Pros

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

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

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