I have been working at Southwestern Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Hands on experience, chance to take on big challenges at all experience levels. Fast pace. Employees are rewarded for taking on responsibility.

Cons

Senior Management quick to react to the market, but slow to adapt. Missed corporate opportunities in the name of saving a buck and keeping an over-tight balance sheet. The company has grown fast over the last 5 years and is still experiencing many growing pains.

    I have been working at Southwestern Energy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salaries and pay meet industry standards. Also, benefits, particularly vacation benefits, are slightly better than average. For the most part, co-workers are great.

    Cons

    Management only wants results. How results are achieved is not important. Therefore, safety is not important. Adherring to federal, state, local, or even in-house regulation is not important. Those who violate safety standards and regulation get the promotions, while those who do "the right thing' find their careers languishing, and sometimes are threatened with dismissal.

    Advice to Management

    Karl Marx's philisophy, "the ends justify the means" is a poor management tool.

    I worked at Southwestern Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits ok, room for advancement if you're willing to play politics

    Cons

    Upper Management has no idea what's going on with their employees nor do they seem to care. Lots of politics and back stabbing going on here.

    Advice to Management

    Too much to list after 4-1/2 years with the company
