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

    Pros

    - Autonomy in your role to succeed
    - Executive leadership that understands and supports the need for modernization including but not limited to the use of information and analytics for decision making
    - Great compensation and benefits

    Cons

    - Some of the office productivity technologies in place are behind other E&Ps.
    - If you are not comfortable with change, this is a company in transition, but it represents the opportunity to truly contribute to its future and have a direct impact.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay on message and ensure that every employee regardless of rank has a clear understanding of the company vision and strategy but also how they impact both in their role.

    Pros

    First and foremost the work environment is great. Everyone is super friendly and willing to teach you new things or assist you.

    Cons

    So far my experience has been pleasing. The environment is relaxing yet still stimuliating.

    Pros

    Great family atmosphere, co-workers are great, upper management is easy to talk with and everyone is always working toward the same goal.

    Cons

    The company is letting go of the old image and transition to a more sustainable company, allot of the older employees are not taking this transition well and want the company to go back to the good times of the early 90s.

    Advice to Management

    Set a direction and work toward it. Don't keep trying different items for a month or so and revert back to the old ways before the new directions have had a chance to be fully engaged.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits. Worked with a great bunch of guys. The job itself was fun on most days depending on conditions

    Cons

    Swinging shifts. Work/life balance. Danger of the job itself. Could be drafted to work every weekend. Job security was always in question.

    Advice to Management

    Care more for your employers rather than stock holders

    I have been working at CONSOL Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Let's face it , no for-profit public company (except perhaps public utilities) is truly "loyal" to its employees, but some of more loyal than most. CONSOL has a very long history of retaining its employees for very long careers.

    Cons

    The impending split of the coal business from the core gas business is causing anxiety among the coal business unit employees

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving down drilling, completion, and operating costs and selling off non-core assets; use the proceeds to pay down debt an to acquire additional core assets and to drill new wells.

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

    Pros

    Initially thought it was a great opportunity, what a mistake.

    Cons

    Extremely unorganized. Lack of; care, drive, leadership. Out of touch with economics of their own business. They'd be out of the E&P business had they not had a ton of assets to sell off.

    Advice to Management

    New management (T. Dugan) will straighten them out. Need to gut old guard.

    Pros

    Used to be a good place to work until they took everything away from their employees to save money because of poor business decisions and terrible management.

    Cons

    150 year old company has been destroyed. This used to be a good company, but bad decisions and terrible management has created a terrible morale and a work environment filled with fear and anxiety. People have been hospitalized due to the way employees were being treated. At least 2 employees had to have an ambulance called because of work related stress. Do not work here, trust me. It was the best thing that's ever happened to me to be let go from a place I would describe as hell on earth.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate your supervisors. You have people in management positions that have no business. I wouldn't put them in charge of a McDonalds let alone a supposed big player in the energy industry.


  10. "Lead Drilling Engineer"

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at CONSOL Energy part-time

    Pros

    I really liked the people I worked with directly, from the other drilling engineers to the rig crews. The pay was very high for a young employee.

    Cons

    The company made a lot of snap decisions before they started laying people off. From losing the pensions to company vehicles, the decision was made hastily and not brought forth in a clear/concise way. Also a lot of the people in the offices made decisions without consulting with thte workers in the field.

    Advice to Management

    When making decisions that affect the organization, try to think of better ways to communicate the message. This will allow the current employees to have an idea of what's happening rather than jumping to conclusions.
