    Pros

    Good staff level workers and field personnel.

    Cons

    Management drove this company into the ground. They accidentally got some of the best property in Texas in 2009, the Eagleford, as part of another deal. They didn't even know the Eagleford was valuable until other companies made the discovery. Even with this good luck, management choked innovation until we were behind our competitors, and eventually had to be sold due to mismanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on proven track record, not who your friends are.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and a lot of flexibility with personal schedules (dependent on your manager) and a mostly supportive work environment

    Cons

    Some of the process are antiquated and not clearly defined so if you are new to join the team it can be a challenge to get all the information you need to get your job done.

    Pros

    9/80 schedule Great health insurance Great total comp package Small teams Friendly low-stress environment

    Cons

    Challenging industry environment in which to secure company's long-term (10+ year) success Poor communication from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    It's still a small enough company that the GMs up to COO need to talk to the folks at the individual contributor level more often than once per quarter or in the AFE Review meeting. The CEO regularly meets with manager level employees and has candid conversations - this is a great example of what can be done.

    Pros

    Every other Friday is an off work day. Friends and Family plan applies to compensation - if you are a friend it will work for you Turnover is high which means if you have tough skin and can hold out you will eventually be promoted. Actions speak more than words, it is clear after working here a couple of years how the system works, if you are not getting a promotion every two years you are not in the family plan. The pro is that you only need to work here two years to find out whether it is better to stay or go.

    Cons

    A lot of compensation process and talk, but after working here, I understand that the talk is for show and the promotions are 100% retention and relationship based. Don't expect hard work to be rewarded. Too many meetings and all decisions are made at the top and they forced downward. It is ready, fire aim at Rosetta. Decisions are made and then data and evidence is gathered to support the plan forward. If you try to recommend any improvement that is not "in the plan", you will be disciplined or shown the door Your boss's raise and bonus gets padded with leftover money from what is not distributed to the staff. So, the management tends to find any excuse to downgrade your performance. What does not get into your pocket goes into his.

    Advice to Management

    Consider basing performance on contributions and experience. There is nothing worse for the company then working for someone who does not know what he is doing.

    Pros

    The Staff Level team is in general excellent, working together to bring value to the company.

    Cons

    There are few bad apples, unfortunately, these bad apples are most often "promoted to their level of incompetence" The company was recently split into an Eagleford and Permian division. Additional layers of management were added, and employees were promoted based on the "buddy" connection, not on ability. A number of talented employees left after the split, and the company is suffering for it, shown on our balance sheets and poor projections.

    Advice to Management

    Have a peer review system in place when promoting. Management should touch base with the staff level occasionally, and not just use mid-managers as intermediaries.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. The company shows its appreciation for employees through celebrations, awards, and nice offiice ammenities.

    Cons

    Tenure with the company is low due to rapid growth and some turnover early on, which causes knowledge transfer issues and impacts how quickly we can execute on actitives sometimes as it is often new territory for those involved.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reward and appreciate employees.

    Pros

    Free snacks 9/80 Nice office Lots of young people

    Cons

    Too many meetings Not much direction Some members of management are too young and have very little experience Pay is based on whether you are a flight risk Your bosses bonus is taken out of his staffs bonus pool. If he pays you less he gets more To reward someone else management takes it from another

    Advice to Management

    Reward performance and don't base pay on who you think might leave

    Pros

    When you first join the company, the compensation package is above average to encourage people to make the move Some young talented staff that work hard and try to do the right thing 2 Fridays off a month

    Cons

    Lack of long term vision, focus is on short term - long term is sacrified Friends in high places causes organization problems - some senior people know that the CEO won't let them go regardless of what happens so they have no fear of losing their jobs, they just manipulate people and behave like chlideren (decisions are more emotional than analytical ie we are going to do this because it is MY idea (& I want to look right) vs we will do this because it increases company profitability

    Advice to Management

    Everyone wants to help their friends, nothing wrong with it, but when your friends are not the right people for the job it is time to make a change. Currently there is nobody internal to take over succession of the company. Some senior folks lack the maturity and stabilty to run the company.
