    Pros

    The people were great, the job was fast paced, strong focus on safety, business attire was casual, and I enjoyed my job.

    Pros

    Safety is truly the number one priority
    Hourly workers are non union and highly skilled.
    Decent healthcare from Anthem blue cross.
    Business atmosphere is much more "laid back" than other global companies.
    Pay is relatively high for the higher

    Cons

    Mining volatility leads to layoffs
    Can be hard to promote within without education.
    Salary increases from promotions are much lower than outsiders coming in would make.
    Corporate infighting causes major issues for production. (Purchasing is in Milwaukee)

    Advice to Management

    Stream line the direct reporting function to allow for quick action and reduce waste of trying to get things done through bureaucracy. Not having local personnel that can respond is an issue at the Longview campus.
