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

    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.

    None other than CONSOL is one of the few oil & gas companies in the area.

    Cons

    Promotions are not based on industry experience but rather on politics.

    Pros

    They use to care about their employees! Great coworkers. Management cared in the day. This company treated you good and was worth working for.

    Cons

    Then came new management...they no longer cared. You were totally disposable. They laid off their employees then had them go to a staffing agency to supplement their skeleton crew at a lesser hourly wage and no benefits! Cut throat!

    Advice to Management

    Wise up!

    Pros

    Great mid level management, positive environment, collaborative teams

    Cons

    Not many. Changing the core value priority to money is not the best cultural focus for the company in the long term.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your best, most productive employees when downsizing.

    I worked at CONSOL Energy (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and salary. The camaraderie developed by employees makes working for supervisors and upper management tolerable.

    Cons

    No clear direction, there is a complete lack of corporate planning from the CEO to the mid-level supervisors, and there is a complete disregard for the input of employees by Human Resources and Management. There was no chance for upward mobility and lack of interest for lower employees by supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront and honest with your employees and show that you care for them. Even though it's a difficult time for the company, show employees some respect.
