    I have been working at Samson Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Good People, Decent Pay, I don't hate my life knowing I have to come in every day. Office is very nice.

    Cons

    High Turnover, Lack of Stability, No idea if we will ever exit bankruptcy, retention bonus would have been nice for those of us who have stuck it out.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear with employees, it's too late for retention bonuses. Don't say you plan to stick it out to the end and leave before then.

    management needs to work on more effective communication, Samson is in bankruptcy so it's ongoing presence is in question, uncertainty is not fun

    Advice to Management

    work on providing better communication, more community involvement, more incentive to stay at a failing company

    I worked at Samson Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Like many oil and gas jobs, Samson paid well with extremely good benefits. I felt more than well compensated for my efforts at all times.

    Cons

    The company is bankrupt, like many oil and gas companies these days. In the crunch of the commodity price collapse, it became apparent how out of date Samson had become in business processes, and possessed extremely high overhead.

    Advice to Management

    Update business practices to make the balance sheet leaner, and update all electronic systems. Think outside the box to survive the future. The old ways of the industry will not bring success.

    I worked at Samson Resources full-time

    Pros

    Very competitive salary and benefits. Good place to gain oil and gas experience. Great work environment and nice people to work with.

    Cons

    The only downside would be the current decline in oil and gas industry as a whole. The company is experiencing financial difficulties as a result of the declining prices for oil and gas.

    Advice to Management

    Advice would be more communication company wide.

    Pros

    Culture and benefits were generous and beyond industry standard in many regards. The people at Samson are fantastic and incredibly talented.

    Cons

    Too unstable. I didn't want to leave because of the wonderful people but it was becoming too stressful with impending layoffs at all times.

    Advice to Management

    A little more transparency during bankruptcy would have been nice.
