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

    Pros

    dynamic, technically driven from operations point of view

    Cons

    There is not a defined program for career advance, so if employee falls in the fast track line he will move very fast, if he does not, he will be stuck forever at same position

    Advice to Management

    Define a career program, everybody needs to move about same speed

    Pros

    Great benefits and paid time off

    Cons

    Training and future investment in people is not good. A lot of bad attitudes.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in everyone. Not just the ones we think will go far. I've discovered that talent always leaves after less than five years.

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Great hard working co-workers, collaborative environment.

    Cons

    Age mix of employees unbalanced with many newer employees with promise and little experience and fewer experienced employees with technical knowledge and industry expertise. Efforts to promote from within sometimes results in early promotion of employees into supervisory/management roles without appropriate maturity or relevant experience levels.

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

    Pros

    The company had tons of perks, free money for doing just about anything, huge parties with unreal give-a-ways. Awesome work life balance

    Cons

    It wasn't about what you knew, my department was complete good ole boy structured

    Advice to Management

    Look at employees based on what they can do, not based on who they know or who can laugh at the same inappropriate joke at a meeting.
