Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

good benefits
tuition reimbursement
good pay
acknowledge long term employees with an award ceremony on a yearly basis.

Cons

very political
will not purchase new technological hardware and software with IT infrastructure
focused on making a profit, not their employees
middle management does not value the every day employee
does not think globally
still in the mindset of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mentality

Advice to Management

Focus on the employees that work for you, not the almighty dollar. Management needs to encourage innovation, not fear of losing their jobs. The IT department is still in the dark ages. Monies need to be invested in the IT infrastructure ASAP.

    Recommends
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Compensation, benifits and company stability

    Cons

    Peabody Energy values education over experience more than most companies and it is therefore more difficult to get a trainee job or advance without the education.

    Advice to Management

    Give people who have performed well a written letter of thanks. For example, someone who has come up with an idea to redesign a piece of equipment and then followed through on fabricating that idea resulting in a substancial financial savings to the company should receive a written letter of commendation at the very least. Not just a verbal thank you and pat on the back.

    Allows for a good work environment

    Advice to Management

    Do not micro manage employees. Allow them to do their jobs.
