    I worked at CONSOL Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, exciting projects, incredible corporate office with a decent workout room (a little bigger than the average hotel gym)

    Cons

    Poor communication and direction from management. This can be a pro, as there is no micro management here, but it is hard to complete a project without direction and communication from support groups such as purchasing/environmental.

    Pros

    Great paying position in the engineering (coal). Awesome work atmosphere - field to office combination. They will value a hard-working, dedicated employee.

    Cons

    Job security - I was layed off, but this is understandable. Management was uneasy before and during the time of layoffs..

    Advice to Management

    Protect your highest valued employees that deserve more. Experience is great, don't get me wrong, but there are also great employees with little experience and a lot of potential.

    I worked at CONSOL Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are best in the Ohio valley. They gave safety bonuses plus jackets shirts hats and more. They even fed us meals.

    Cons

    They hire anyone with a pulse to be a boss regardless if you have a brain or not. 6 days a week got old.

    Advice to Management

    Visit with the coal miners in person more often so you get a better understanding of what they do everyday for a living. Quit making knee jerk reaction decisions when an accident happens. Accidents happen underground and you will never be at ZERO ACCIDENTS.
