    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Murray Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay, laid back. Work is always needed somewhere or on something, so there's job security. Easy schedule to work with

    Cons

    The management is indecisive, always changing jobs, or the way things are done halfway thru the task. Too much waste.

      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Murray Energy full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Pay and benefits were good.

      Cons

      A lot of back stabbing within upper management. Unrealistic in outcomes from task given. Murray thinks he has a stranglehold on the people of eastern ohio because of his coal mines. Best thing to ever happen is to get some all hat no cattle oil and gas guys in here to play with Bobby in his sand box!

      Advice to Management

      If Bob would trust his boys and family more he would be better off. Instead of him flying the cope every so often and firing a handful of good employees. Mr. Murrays judgement day will come soon enough like all of ours.

      I have been working at Murray Energy full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Good pay and fast promotions through because of high turnover. Good place to start a career if one is young and capable of absorbing the punishment and putting the time in.

      Cons

      This corporation controls its employees through fear and intimidation. Expect to be thoroughly indoctrinated politically. People lose their jobs during layoffs to make a political point. Salaried employees are pressured to donate to the company PAC. Little work-life balance. Bob Murray is a first-order coal baron who would rather see free speech eliminated before being publicly criticized--a total megalomaniac....

      Advice to Management

      Let Bob Murray retire and let somebody run the company who doesn't treat people like they work in a nineteenth-century sweatshop.

      I have been working at Murray Energy

      Pros

      There is no positive outlooks on the company since the world is going green, if the company invested in green power source it would do better, and the workers would have a better job

      Cons

      If safety regulations are important, avoid this company

      Advice to Management

      Rebrand with a new CEO who values people's life
