    Worst job I have ever had

    measurment tech (Current Employee)
    Alva, OK

    ProsSpend little time around my manager. And more time around skilled sub contractors in the field.

    ConsNo communication in our department. My boss/ manager will not even answer my emails or phone calls. I have been a measurement technician for several years and my piers in our midstream measurement department are the least knowledgable/skilled I have ever worked with. manager does nothing and everyone else spends all day trying to find someone else to do their job for them. All the real talent has left or been fired for being qualified to do their job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to my manager would be to be a manager. To upper management please make our midstream managers do their jobs. Not just forward emails

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A waste of four years of my life.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFast growing company with great benefits . that changed real quick

    ConsNo communication between departments in the field or between the corporate office and the field. Dropped the 401k match from 15% to 10℅ and bonuses from twice a year to once a year. The worst part is the management period. The worst is in Midstream Measurement. However the issue is across the board. I have never worked for a company before that their department managers had no knowledge or experience in their departments roles and responsibilities. To be a Sandridge energy midstream Manager all you have to do is forward emails. All the real talent jumped ship already and the skilled employees that are still there are being fired for no good reason. BEWARE OF SANDRIDGE MIDSTREAM. The worst company I have ever worked for.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate with your field assets. From poor judgment in picking your field managers you will continue to lose all of your skilled employees. I personally was fired for the first time in my life just because my new manager did not like me. Now I am looking forward to Devon.

    bad compensation.

    Lease Operator (Current Employee)
    Andrews, TX

    ProsGood work Schedule. 10 on 4 off

    ConsMicromanaging, don't want to hear the truth about what's really happening in the field.
    Pay sucks compared to industry standard.
    Fairness in pay. hiring new employees at higher rate than older empoyees. will not correct this problem. even with recent "raises" experienced employees are training people that are making more money. VERY BAD IDEA!!!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees right and pay them fair. You just don't pay older employees less than new hires and expect them to train in-experienced people who make better money. Very bad ethics. Field employees work their butts off to make production, but don't see any return.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Welcome to the Jungle!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFast paced, good pay/ benefits

    Consmanagement on ipads all the time looking at nonsense! leaves work to worker bees with little or no direction, hostile environment!

    Advice to Senior Managementcare about your employees, no team morale! give them advice, training and the help they need to get the job done. they will be much more loyal.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
