Pros

Great place to get experience so you can get a great job somewhere else (if you work in operations). The R2 training program is a total joke and is not a challenge at all. You don't need to know that much about geology to be a Senior Geologist, either.

Cons

Some geologists are worked to the bone, while others simply have no impact. 20% of the workforce does 80% of the work. Those that put in the work are frequently overlooked for promotion by those who do nothing. The company has one asset, and it it's making realistic strides to diversify in a meaningful way.

Advice to Management

Realize that your operations geologists are the foundation of the geologic workforce. Development and exploration is overstaffed.

    Pros

    SWN provides incentives for safety on a quarterly basis.

    Cons

    Constant exposure to outdoor elements.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a means of allowing those in the field to eventually move up and out of the field into administration for the purpose of training potential roughnecks, motormen, etc.

    Pros

    The benefits are very good.

    Cons

    No consideration is given to experience or education when promoting within the company. People in certain positions are overpaid given their expertise (or lack thereof) in the industry. Promotions are based on the "good ole boy" system.

    Advice to Management

    Promotions should be awarded to those meeting minimum qualifications. Promotions should be available to all who are qualified. Balancing work and family should be a priority.
