    I have been working at Southwestern Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Hard to find much positive to say about a company that has laid off more than 2,000 employees in about five years via six rounds of layoffs. But the C-suite is well protected as they have excessive change of control packages when it's bought by private equity and dismantled. Can't happen fast enough to get that blowhard CEO out the door and the over-compensated COO and CFO, who have made junior level decisions but received outsized compensation. Culture is just evil as it's as political as they come with no principles or integrity, just a leadership team intent on deceiving employees and investors. Yes, Bill, I am talking about you.

    Cons

    Political, incompetent, self-important, nasty people in upper level roles
