    Run by managers, not leaders

    Current Employee - Geologist in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Geologist in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Rosetta Resources

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Not performance based, Ex-BR employees are given free reign

    • Comp & Benefits

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Rosetta Resources

    Pros

    If you previously worked for BR, you are given the benefit of the doubt and are almost guarranteed to move up in the company. Sr. Management has a comfort factor with those they have worked with in the past.

    Every other Friday off - which is what you will need after the constant belittling (if you are not from BR)

    Cons

    They believe in induced tension - which means they pit people against each other

    Compensation is a zero sum game - for one person to get rewarded it has to come out of someone ele's pocket regardless of performance by the individual or the company

    There is a complete lack of trust internally - fueled by those that get rewarded for throwing others under the bus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually follow your so called company values. Treat people with respect regardless of which companies they worked with in the past.

    People are your best asset. They get things done to support the overpaid top brass. It makes no sense to treat them poorly.

    Put the interest of the company ahead of your own ego. There are numerous examples were poor business decisions were made just so someone at the top could save face.
