I worked at Seneca Resources full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I got pretty darn good pay for the job I was doing -- some geeky computer stuff to support operations analysis. Management was focused on professionalizing internal processes as the organization grew from a mom-and-pop into a major. Moving from "get it done" to "get it done right," and from "just figure it out" to "best practice." Good situation for somebody with vision and organizational discipline.

Definitely no-nonsense and mission-focused; as long as I stayed in touch and my work supported management's plan, I got some latitude to explore and develop on my own. Paid overtime. Wanted us to be on the job and focused when we were there, but get home on time and only pull overtime occasionally when there was a clear reason. Coworkers were very accessible when I needed help, which you always do when you're new.

I left due to personal reasons, and it was an incredibly difficult choice. I would have very much enjoyed staying, and I think I could have had good career growth there.

Also, their coffee machine has a million options and is kept well-stocked.

Cons

It's a cubicle farm. That's OK because the coworkers are decent folks. Just FYI. It's not a colorful, bicycles-hanging-from-the-ceiling, morale factory -- it's a disciplined approach. But they do take care of you.

Advice to Management

Keep supporting your smart people and your Ph.D. managers, and look to your field offices across disciplines -- drilling, pipelines, etc., to find ways to make their technology work together where permitted by regulations ... and to do as much as you can to streamline the public information sharing across units where required by regulation. The more you can do to get information out of individuals' heads and file cabinets and onto shared systems, the more flexible you'll be to buy, sell, uproot and move operation units as shale resource priorities shift.

    I have been working at Seneca Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment! Open line of communication to everyone in the company up to the CEO's. REAL open door policy where ides and concerns can be shared. Not afraid to listen to employees to better processes and open to suggestions. Comp is fair and no cap on commissions. Advancement opportunities. Everyone is held accountable. True team feeling. Have a lot more to offer than other staffing agencies. Monthly dinners and happy hours to celebrate goals (when they're hit). Yearly top producer trip! Mexico this year!

    Cons

    No cons. Great place to work!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
