    Pros

    Great opportunity provided to learn a variety of professional roles in an oil company. Everybody was very friendly and supportive, even the upper management. Hourly pay was great for an internship position.

    Cons

    Apparently there is a policy that a former employee cannot obtain a reference from a manager who is still employed at Swift.

    Advice to Management

    Continue treating employees well and change the policy regarding former employee references. There is no point to an internship if you cannot get a reference to prove that you performed well at a company.

    Pros

    With the growth rate, there are opportunities opening up every day. We have senior managers that for the most part, truly have their hearts in the rigiht place.

    Cons

    The "letting go" is happening too slowly for some people and too fast for others. It would depend which camp you are in as to whether the company is in good stead.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with yourselves and decide that all sr managers are on board with the VMVB program and if they are not, then they are hindering you.

    Pros

    Swift is a growing company that has a good company culture along with great benefits for employees, a laid back work schedule, and friendly co workers.

    Cons

    Needs to improve their business process. They need a paperless software. Swift Employees tend to print their work way to much.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your managers better implement a ERP system. Promote better from within and also give your employees something to believe in.

    Pros

    Great people that will help you get invaluable experience.

    Cons

    The distinction between "Summer Student" and "Intern" can be frustrating as interns get special privileges that summer students are barred from.

    I worked at Swift Energy full-time

    Pros

    Not a lot good things to say about it. Swifts' biggest asset is their people. 1/2 day on Fridays is really good.

    Cons

    Lots of politics, good-ole-boys environment, management is a wreck, investors aren't happy about decisions being made, lots of debt, stock price has depreciated 84% in the last year or so. The company is going downhill.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of useless managers.

    Some decisions are made in a vacuum
