Extreme learning curve in unconventional resource plays. SM is a great place to learn and work.

Pros

Work environment composes of a friendly, knowledgeable, and cooperative staff with various backgrounds. Most employees haven't been with the company longer than 3 years. Great pay and benefits. Great culture that recognizes not only performance, but character. Senior management is very communicative, upbuilding, and pro-active. The CEO gets to know YOU. Good communication from your supervisor regarding what will effectively get you promoted.

Cons

Technical sharing primarily in silos, but that may be addressed shortly. No real data management focus, ut that is changing. Somewhat chaotic professional development planning. Fast growth has strained some cross functional relationships and business processes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None, really.

    Pros

    The company has an xcellent long term compensation package and industry an leading health care plan. The people are wonderful to work with and the comapny is very much heaed in the right direction.

    Cons

    Capital expenditure limits make work a bit frustrating as the company has more projects than it can fund. Therefor new projects are only rarely approved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It might be a good idea to divest of or JV/partner on some assets to accelarate the development of a few key projects.
