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

    Pros

    Management and personnel have aspirations of a big company and want to explore innovation. Pay and vacation are good. Casual atmosphere is nice. Upper management are all very nice and personable. Building, location, gym are all very nice. New ideas centered on technology are welcomed.

    Cons

    Though they have aspirations of new innovation etc there is simply not the manpower to pursue it. Past deals under former management has put SD in a sticky spot with a large miss lime asset. Lots of layoffs. Icahn has a grip on the company, and most people are aware of his legacy in the energy industry. In some departments its easy to get locked into your role without growth opportunity.

    I worked at SandRidge Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Most co-workers are great people, and the pay has always seemed fair.

    Cons

    Many managers seem solely self-interested, and the long-term future of the company is bleak to grim.

    Advice to Management

    Be completely transparent in communication with employees; it's the only way to retain strong talent when the company strategy is only short-term in nature.
