I worked at SandRidge Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good pay, great benefits, central location in downtown, and several opportunities to give back to the community, and tickets to the OKC Thunder.

Cons

This company had a lot of potential. Due to poor management in Accounting and other areas, the morale and good people have all left the building. Repeated complaints to HR from several different people regarding the same issues in different departments goes in one ear and out the other. The upper management is totally disconnected from reality and if you like micro managers, this place is for you. Even recruiters know their reputation and it just keeps getting worse. They brag about community involvement yet allow management to treat their people poorly. It's not worth the $$. There are several good companies in OKC that have a positive work environment. Look elsewhere.

Advice to Management

Not sure there is any advice to give middle/upper management except you treat your people terribly. I used to think that Tom was good, but he's let this continue with constant turnover and complaints to HR.

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

    Pros

    The atmosphere coming into work each day is uplifting and the SD tower is amazing. Benefits are more than generous. There is a sense of involvement working towards the greater good of the company.

    Cons

    Mid level management seems unqualified, at least in my department. Managers seem to have just inherited there positions instead of qualifying for them.

    I have been working at SandRidge Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, good compensation. Some very qualified employees and managers.

    Cons

    Terrible upper management leadership in many departments. Poor communication between departments. A lot of posturing and positioning while requiring ridiculous efforts from staff in effort to play up their roles. Serious increase in this type of behaviour over the past 12 months making is difficult or impossible for staff and some managers to get any real progress made.

    Advice to Management

    communicate! This company is about family and community. Help employees believe that by showing it in the workplace. Listen to what employees are saying. HR: no one will go to you with issues because your policy is to go directly to the persons manager.
