    Pros

    The people are wonderful to work with. Great team players. Excellent resources to help you do your job efficiently.

    Cons

    The expectations of the upper management at the parent company are sometimes unrealistic. The company is over 100 years old, so the corporate culture is very conservative.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communications open with employees. Your success is their success.

    I have been working at North American Coal full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for, the comapny values are upheld and th ecompensation is great. Health insurance is amazing and the retirement plans are great as well.

    Cons

    Not much as far as Cons. Sometimes they seem like they hold of on pay increases more then they should and for stupid reasons when it clearly just comes down to nickle and diming the budget. Id rather it just be open an honest, instead of smoke and mirrors.
