    Salary, benefits, on site gym. Free Thunder Tickets

    I worked at SandRidge Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most co-workers are great people, and the pay has always seemed fair.

    Cons

    Many managers seem solely self-interested, and the long-term future of the company is bleak to grim.

    Advice to Management

    Be completely transparent in communication with employees; it's the only way to retain strong talent when the company strategy is only short-term in nature.

    I worked at SandRidge Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, Good benefits, Good culture and amenities. My "ratings" are reflective of the CURRENT state of what's happening within the organization. Had I filled this out a few years ago, they would look completely different.

    Cons

    Culture is deteriorating, Poor strategy and assets seem to have left the company in its current state, Future appears to be bleak, Upper management and other leadership which influenced said good culture are gone, Slow professional growth due to volatile industry conditions

    Advice to Management

    What made SandRidge an attractive place to work has gone by the wayside. Advice to management? Stop misleading what's left of the workforce by beating around the bush. Closing up shop or not?!

    I worked at SandRidge Energy (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very welcoming, laid back culture. Great pay and half day fridays are very nice. Awesome corporate culture.

    Cons

    They don't have their internship program really well developed, and I don't think they ever will. Manager told me he didn't know he had an intern until a month before I came because the old management that got laid off requested one. That manager has since accepted a job elsewhere. Mid-level management is always changing

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

    Pros

    This company has a great culture. Open and honest dialogue is important here. Work life balance is also attainable. Good benefits.

    Cons

    It is expected for you to stay until you get your work done. Have had quite a few layoffs over the past few years

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees have more flexibility. If they can get their work done a better, more efficient way, reward that! This would greatly improve the work ethic of employees.
