    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work at Consol are the benefits....they are the best. They also pay very well. Overall they are an excellent place to work. I was devastated when my husband was transferred.

    Cons

    THe only thing I found disturbing at Consol was thier policy when laying poeple off. People who had worked there for 20 or 30 years were called to the HR office and then escorted to thier desks with a box to get thier personal items and escorted out the door. They were not allowed to speak to anyone. They were treated as horrible hostile employees. A great lack of respect for people who had spent their entire careers there. That was the ONLY thing I didn't like about the company.

    Advice to Management

    A layoff is devastating regardless of how it is done however, in the future please try and find a way to do it with a little more respect. People love working there and it is very sad not only for the people being layed off but also for the employees who see it ihappening. THere is no GOOD way to lay people off and I totally understand that it is an issue of safety but there must surely be a better way.

    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

    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

    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
