    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.
