    I worked at SandRidge Energy (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, benefits, benefits! All the standard benefits expected like medical, dental, and vision, paid time off, and holidays but also 401k contribution up to 10% matching, bonuses, tuition assistance program, and ticket event drawings. Benefits were the best!

    Cons

    Intense and stressful environment at times, lack of support from upper management, and lack of critical communication.

    Advice to Management

    Top heavy organizations often lose balance.

    Pros

    Great community outreach. Small business feel. If you are a male, you have great potential for growth in the company. Employee benefits were great.

    Cons

    No potential for growth for women. Management does reorganization so often, you barely learn your new job when they move you to another group. People are promoted to management with very little experience.

    Pros

    Family environment, good pay and benefits. Free gym, and access to free thunder tickets!

    Due to commodity prices be prepared to get laid off. Also, at times it's hard to move up in the company.

    Sell the company. It's a shame so many talented employees will have to lose their jobs.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits for employees.

    Cons

    Certain departments don't communicate with each other at all - even when told they must do so. This often causes longer work hours than necessary. Accounting department is in dire need of management who remembers that the employees are important - not just a number. Promotions are sometimes not based on performance but who you know. Hard work often goes unnoticed and expected providing little balance between work and family.

    Advice to Management

    Show employees that they are a valuable asset. Simply smile at them in the hallway or say hello. Don't just stay in your office all day and never say anything. Get departments to communicate through example. Hold activities that promote teamwork. Give incentives to hard working employees so they will stay. Show that family is important.
