    I worked at Rex Energy as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Company is growing fast and is very excited about it. CEO is very friendly and since the company is small I was able to interact with upper management. Relaxed environment especially at the Cranberry township office. Great people.

    Cons

    Not great pay for an internship. Program needs working on like gaining a mentor system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they are taking risk and making good decisions. No advice I can think of.

    I worked at Rex Energy

    Pros

    I gained the experience needed to move on to a better company that would allow my career to grow

    Cons

    I was told upon hire that there would be "growth opportunities" After uprooting my family to live in a back water part of the country, I quickly realized there were really no prospects for career advancement at Rex.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some people that actually know the oil and gas business. Pay your technical staff competitive wages, they are after all the people that allow an oil and gas company to be profitable.

    I have been working at Rex Energy

    Pros

    The people for the most part are quiet nice

    Cons

    Very long hours, working Saturday was normal, could never make weekend plans or go out of town, was lied to in interview process and told regular business hours. Working on the fourth of July, missing labor day to work. All normal with no compensation for doing so. This culture created by CEO who routinely came in on Saturday. Some in upper management are complete monsters trying to get others canned so they can be promoted. A culture of fear and intimidation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to the shareholders is to replace the board and existing management who are running the company into the ground.

    I worked at Rex Energy

    Pros

    Good earning potential in the industry. Some of the guys there were pretty good guys. Good location to work at. I liked the Cranberry location.

    Cons

    Not the best people to work with. Didn't like the culture. A lot of people there come off as gun nuts, and very conservative. Little to no diversity within the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify
