    I worked at SandRidge Energy

    Pros

    I worked with/for a wonderful, dedicated group of young oil and gas professionals that made me want to work on SandRidge projects to develop our Oklahoma natural resources.

    Cons

    As an outside attorney, management does not know who I am, and cuts in the 2015 budget effectively eliminated my position. I never had an opportunity to present an argument to retain my services. I miss working with the six LandMen and women on our Western Oklahoma prospects.

    I worked at SandRidge Energy full-time for 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

    I have been working at SandRidge Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Sandridge went through some difficult times, but the new management seems to be turning the corner. Some of the more political people have left the company. Overall its a great working environment. New executives seem to be doing a great job. Good benefits. New Investor EVP was a great choice both for internally charging up the team and externally for talking to wall street.

    Cons

    Hard to hold onto good people. Opportunities in Oil and Gas are really high right now with the two newly formed companies in OKC. Re-organization decisions need to be communicated better.

    I worked at SandRidge Energy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice fringe benefits: Thunder tickets, gym on-site, discounts at local restaurants

    Cons

    Completely unpredictable management decisions. Zero structure in certain departments, resulting in no accountability for any level of employee. Most policies literally seem to be made up as they go along. HR is full of 20-something girls who don't have the slightest clue about either the oil and gas business or how to run an HR department.
