    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at SandRidge Energy full-time

    Pros

    The HR department ('people and culture') seems to care about and for the employees (more than managers).
    Good 401(k) match.
    Operations group works on a lot of projects, with reasonable opportunity for input.

    Cons

    Managers and supervisors too busy managing up to spend time with their teams.
    No clear strategic direction for what the company wants to do.

    Advice to Management

    Decide on a business strategy to make positive returns in a low price environment -- not just one that gets you paid.

    I worked at SandRidge Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Independence of daily jobs. Technical experience, training, fellow employers, oil and gas industry. Latest tools and test equipment. Drinking on back roads

    Cons

    Young engineers that are on power trips get pushed into upper management because of their cheap salary compared to the veterans pushed out. Other than that it was a dream job

    Advice to Management

    My manager was great

    SandRidge takes care of their employees. The work environment is great and the salaries are above the industry average.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. You get to work out doors at your own pace. They provide you a company phone and vehicle.

    Cons

    You will be working long hours, on call and weekends. Oil field job means your employment is never promised, work load follows the price of oil.

    Advice to Management

    Take more input from your employees in the field. It could really benefit the overspending issues the company has faced in the past.

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

    Pros

    I really liked working for SandRidge in the accounting department. Like at any company there are personalities that are easy to get along with and then therefore those that are challenging. Luckily for me my immediate coworkers and supervisors were the former. I would have continued to work at SandRidge, but I had to move cities for personal reasons.

    When I left in 2015 my salary was a little below the market rate, but the benefits made up for the difference. However that was before price of oil tanked.

    Cons

    Former management made some interesting choices on the company's acquisitions and divestitures during my tenure. They probably should have held on to the offshore business and diversified out of the MidCon region.

    Advice to Management

    Survive

    Pros

    Very friendly office environment. Given a job to do and was allowed to do it without interference.

    Cons

    Contract just didn't last long enough.
