    I have been working at Swift Energy full-time

    Pros

    Conservative. Hires good people. Treats employees well. Its a great place to work.

    Cons

    No directive. Management is unreasonable with the value of the company's assets therefore passing on some exceptional divestment opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees, remember you hired them for a reason. Stop over analyzing every transaction and missing out on solid investments or divestments.

    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.
