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

    Pros

    There are some good people there.

    Cons

    Very much a good ol' boy company where steady and no innovation is the norm. If you are looking for a company that is growing...this is not the company

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company. It is highly leveraged and struggling in the market...the stock is down to $3 from around $13 this year.

    I worked at Swift Energy full-time

    Pros

    Not a lot good things to say about it. Swifts' biggest asset is their people. 1/2 day on Fridays is really good.

    Cons

    Lots of politics, good-ole-boys environment, management is a wreck, investors aren't happy about decisions being made, lots of debt, stock price has depreciated 84% in the last year or so. The company is going downhill.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of useless managers.

    Pros

    With the growth rate, there are opportunities opening up every day. We have senior managers that for the most part, truly have their hearts in the rigiht place.

    Cons

    The "letting go" is happening too slowly for some people and too fast for others. It would depend which camp you are in as to whether the company is in good stead.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with yourselves and decide that all sr managers are on board with the VMVB program and if they are not, then they are hindering you.

    Pros

    Swift is a growing company that has a good company culture along with great benefits for employees, a laid back work schedule, and friendly co workers.

    Cons

    Needs to improve their business process. They need a paperless software. Swift Employees tend to print their work way to much.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your managers better implement a ERP system. Promote better from within and also give your employees something to believe in.


  7. Interesting and fun summer internship at Swift Energy Co.

    I worked at Swift Energy as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really great coworkers. Friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. Overall a good time and I learned a lot about the professional work environment. I had plenty of opportunity to work on my own, but it was encouraged to come to my employers with updates or questions.

    Cons

    Was of course an internship, so there were slow days and I did have to lug around a lot of equipment at some points. I didn't mind it though since it gave me a chance to be up and about.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing overtly negative that I could suggest changing.
