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

    Pros

    First, actually last worked here in 2011, Glassdoor wouldn't let me go past '13 for some reason. Some of this may have changed since then.

    Pay was great for an entry-level position, flexible (at least at the time) with time off without pay in emergencies, training provided, opportunities for overtime were plentiful at the time. Motivated individuals could strike for pilot after 2 years and be making near 6 figures 2-3 years after that.

    Cons

    2 week hitches weren't a con for me at the time, but those with family or general troubles at home might find it difficult. The sleep schedule is too much for some people, 6 hours on, 6 hours off for 2 weeks at a time.

    I have been working at CONSOL Energy (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As in any company, it's the people that make the company great. In a tough market environment, the leadership has made employee engagement a priority. It's nice to work for a company that cares about the employees.

    Cons

    Tough market to be in, hard decisions have to be made.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the focus on getting us through the storm.

    Pros

    Supportive environment, great pay and benefits, lots of bonuses, very professional

    Cons

    the ways things are approached are inefficient in a lot of cases. You will do a lot of what feels like busy bureaucratic work for pretty much anything you accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    Try to optimize better, allow employees to just work

    Pros

    Modified 9-80 work schedule, friendly employees, overall decent 401k package and fringe benefits such as gym in the facility, outside gym discounts, etc.

    Cons

    Middle management seems to be spread too thin, follow-ups on pressing issues are seldom, interdepartmental communication is lacking and overall guidance and direction leaves something to be desired (minimal feedback.)

    Advice to Management

    Transparency and communication are the keys to productive and POSITIVE employees!

    Pros

    Amazing benefits package, great pay and incentives, operated by a very well lead corporate team.

    Cons

    6 days a week, all the over time you can want even when you don't want it. Rotating shifts and limited home life and next to no upward mobility
