Pros

Good pay. Good co-workers. Company encourages involvement with community.

Cons

Accoounting department management uses unfair promotional practices. Training and promotion opportunities are only given to "favorites." If you are a new college grad, a golfer, or are a former Chesapeake employee then you will do well in the accounting department at SandRidge. If you are a woman over the age of 30 your opportunities for training and advancement are nil. Several older women in the accounting department have been passed over for promotions several times while new inexperienced employees are given promotions after 6 months. Some of these older women don't even get raises even though their experience is far greater and their work loads are equal or heavier to those who are being promoted. Unfortunately, the HR department immediately contacts an employees direct manager anytime the employee goes to HR with an issue. With this practice in place, employees don't feel like they can go to HR with issues without putting their job at risk.

Advice to Management

Hire managers that care about their employees and use fair promotion practices. Restaff senior management in Accounting. Change HR practices to provide anonymity to employees when they make complaints so that they feel they can go to HR with issues without losing their jobs.

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

    Pros

    The freedom to solve problems at Sandridge leaves me eager to arrive at work each day. The company encourages collaboration and creative thinking to help meet the challenges of the industry.

    Cons

    Career advancement appears to be slow.

    Advice to Management

    When you consider a major restructure involving potential layoffs, try to consider the employees with much less income than yours and fight for their benefit not just your own. Do not let greed drive you personally. Keep in mind the giving culture at Sandridge and try to help others as well.


  2. "Confused management"

    I have been working at SandRidge Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people. Lots of potential upside. Great pay.

    Cons

    Management has nearly no direction from a micromanagement standpoint. They understand the broad strokes, but little of what should be done to get there.

    Advice to Management

    Role definition is very important in a job. Currently, proposed additions in workload are just picked up or given out randomly.
