    I worked at Alliance Resource full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    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.

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

    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.

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