Company Culture

Expressed mainly in bigger operations, smaller operations are operated as different as day and night.

Support from management

The higher up the the person goes the more corruption, embezzlement, and cut throating goes on.

Freedom to work independently

Only in umwa represented mines were work loads shared evenly.

Internal Communication

Severe communication problems due I think in part of improper training.

Gender Equality

No on women is how they act, as returning to work they constantly try to intimidate you or fire you.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They do not hire older people in fact those with 20 years plus with the company are "expendables" .

Career Development

Only if you have a college degree in engineering.

Overall compensation for your work

Absolutely not! And what your given is always subject to get taken away.

Office / Work Environment

They were operated by the book at least at the bigger operations.

Environmental Friendliness

Not sure.

Work-Life Balance

Patriot was worse than old school A.T. MASSEY ENERGY under Don Blankenship rule, everything was dictated by the operator. Never had a quoting time fear of being fired for not working forced over time.

Company Image

No actually they are very dark in what is said behind closed doors.

Job Security

Always feast or famine no in between. I've never worked a full year out of 7 years due to layoffs.

Handicapped Accessibility

Nooooo!

Workplace Safety

They do try only because msha makes them!

Challenging Work

Absolutely.

Inclusive / Diverse

Only if you have a college degree. In engineering mainly.

Suggestions for improvement

  • fire all top management and start over.

What I like about the company

Paycheck

What I dislike about the company

arrogance of the management.
