    Pros

    One of the best benefits packages I've seen: minimum 3 weeks vacation, 9/80 work schedule, complimentary snack,drinks, fruit. Professional development provided. Annual bonus and stock grant based on company and individual performance. Incredibly generous 401K plan. Relaxed work environment.

    Cons

    No definite career path. Chief executives favor their own people. Very much a good old boys club.

    Advice to Management

    You should have held out longer.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and a lot of flexibility with personal schedules (dependent on your manager) and a mostly supportive work environment

    Cons

    Some of the process are antiquated and not clearly defined so if you are new to join the team it can be a challenge to get all the information you need to get your job done.

    I have been working at Rosetta Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good staff level workers and field personnel.

    Cons

    Management drove this company into the ground. They accidentally got some of the best property in Texas in 2009, the Eagleford, as part of another deal. They didn't even know the Eagleford was valuable until other companies made the discovery. Even with this good luck, management choked innovation until we were behind our competitors, and eventually had to be sold due to mismanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on proven track record, not who your friends are.

    Pros

    9/80 schedule Great health insurance Great total comp package Small teams Friendly low-stress environment

    Cons

    Challenging industry environment in which to secure company's long-term (10+ year) success Poor communication from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    It's still a small enough company that the GMs up to COO need to talk to the folks at the individual contributor level more often than once per quarter or in the AFE Review meeting. The CEO regularly meets with manager level employees and has candid conversations - this is a great example of what can be done.

    Pros

    Every other Friday is an off work day. Friends and Family plan applies to compensation - if you are a friend it will work for you Turnover is high which means if you have tough skin and can hold out you will eventually be promoted. Actions speak more than words, it is clear after working here a couple of years how the system works, if you are not getting a promotion every two years you are not in the family plan. The pro is that you only need to work here two years to find out whether it is better to stay or go.

    Cons

    A lot of compensation process and talk, but after working here, I understand that the talk is for show and the promotions are 100% retention and relationship based. Don't expect hard work to be rewarded. Too many meetings and all decisions are made at the top and they forced downward. It is ready, fire aim at Rosetta. Decisions are made and then data and evidence is gathered to support the plan forward. If you try to recommend any improvement that is not "in the plan", you will be disciplined or shown the door Your boss's raise and bonus gets padded with leftover money from what is not distributed to the staff. So, the management tends to find any excuse to downgrade your performance. What does not get into your pocket goes into his.

    Advice to Management

    Consider basing performance on contributions and experience. There is nothing worse for the company then working for someone who does not know what he is doing.

    Pros

    The Staff Level team is in general excellent, working together to bring value to the company.

    Cons

    There are few bad apples, unfortunately, these bad apples are most often "promoted to their level of incompetence" The company was recently split into an Eagleford and Permian division. Additional layers of management were added, and employees were promoted based on the "buddy" connection, not on ability. A number of talented employees left after the split, and the company is suffering for it, shown on our balance sheets and poor projections.

    Advice to Management

    Have a peer review system in place when promoting. Management should touch base with the staff level occasionally, and not just use mid-managers as intermediaries.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. The company shows its appreciation for employees through celebrations, awards, and nice offiice ammenities.

    Cons

    Tenure with the company is low due to rapid growth and some turnover early on, which causes knowledge transfer issues and impacts how quickly we can execute on actitives sometimes as it is often new territory for those involved.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reward and appreciate employees.
