    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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue to reward and appreciate employees.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    9/80 work schedule. Small teams make it easy to talk to people in other disciplines. Very nice office building in downtown houston

    Cons

    This used to be a good place to work, but new management tends to undercut the employees to make themselves look better. Decisions are ego based, not based on data or what is best for the Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your teams.

    I have been working at Rosetta Resources full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Rosetta Resources

    Pros

    When you first join the company, the compensation package is above average to encourage people to make the move

    Some young talented staff that work hard and try to do the right thing

    2 Fridays off a month

    Cons

    Lack of long term vision, focus is on short term - long term is sacrified

    Friends in high places causes organization problems - some senior people know that the CEO won't let them go regardless of what happens so they have no fear of losing their jobs, they just manipulate people and behave like chlideren (decisions are more emotional than analytical ie we are going to do this because it is MY idea (& I want to look right) vs we will do this because it increases company profitability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone wants to help their friends, nothing wrong with it, but when your friends are not the right people for the job it is time to make a change. Currently there is nobody internal to take over succession of the company. Some senior folks lack the maturity and stabilty to run the company.

    Not performance based, Ex-BR employees are given free reign

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Rosetta Resources

    Pros

    If you previously worked for BR, you are given the benefit of the doubt and are almost guarranteed to move up in the company. Sr. Management has a comfort factor with those they have worked with in the past.

    Every other Friday off - which is what you will need after the constant belittling (if you are not from BR)

    Cons

    They believe in induced tension - which means they pit people against each other

    Compensation is a zero sum game - for one person to get rewarded it has to come out of someone ele's pocket regardless of performance by the individual or the company

    There is a complete lack of trust internally - fueled by those that get rewarded for throwing others under the bus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually follow your so called company values. Treat people with respect regardless of which companies they worked with in the past.

    People are your best asset. They get things done to support the overpaid top brass. It makes no sense to treat them poorly.

    Put the interest of the company ahead of your own ego. There are numerous examples were poor business decisions were made just so someone at the top could save face.

    Pros

    Challenging work, good perks (free drinks!), good co-workers. Pay is OK, can be a great opportunity if you are formerly from Burlington Resources (BR).

    Cons

    Preference for former BR employees, regardless of skill or competence. Executive management is often unprofessional and disrespectul towards non-ex-BR people. Company's core values are for looks only, the execs don't follow them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live the values you espouse to the employees. Don't be hypocrites. Treat your employees with dignity and respect. Admit that there is a morale problem and work to address it.
