    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great benefits including very competitive compensation packages. These are the best people to work with and that includes the Executive Leadership Team. The CEO, Glenn Kellow, is very down-to-earth and communicative. We always know what's going on with the business which calms nerves in such a turbulent economy and during our Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. Peabody takes care of its employees!!

    Cons

    The only downside I can find is that the building is in downtown St. Louis - we have to pay for parking. But, seriously, that's the only downside.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work with communicating with your employees.

    I have been working at Peabody Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary. Average salary in this mining town is around 80k for a reason. They pay a lot of money for little requirements.

    Cons

    Long hours, night shifts, rough on body bouncing around in equipment breathing dust. Poor morale in recent market downturn.

    Advice to Management

    Needs refocus. Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. Left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.
