    "Horrible middle management and even worse upper management"

    Former Employee - IT Grunt in Saint Louis, MO
    Former Employee - IT Grunt in Saint Louis, MO
    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.

    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.
