General drilling duties on a super single.
I learned how to be a better leader.
Management was superb at communication and enforcing safety regulations.
Hardest part of the job was time away from family.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the challenges and the rewards of success.

Just my opinion
Asset Deployment Lead (Former Employee) –  Spring, TXJuly 11, 2017
During my time at Southwestern Energy it seemed like there was always worry about stock prices and meeting about budgets and the IT related projects that were in place. Wasn't the best feeling and as a smaller company I really don't see it getting better.
Pros
Company not as big as it thinks it is (CEO)
Cons
Great manger and team lead

Supply Chain Intern (Former Employee) –  Conway, ARJuly 11, 2017
Very laid back culture, got to wear jeans to work every day. Had every other Friday off. Teams were very cool and managers were always looking to help you out in any way possible.

mom and pop drilling outfit that thinks they are better than they really are
Roughneck/Floorhand (Former Employee) –  Tunkhannock, PAJuly 7, 2017
high day rates so no other energy company will hire their drilling company. they use the buddy system to hire these days. i know for one instance they hired a 60 year old man that could barely walk over someone in their 20's who was begging to work...both doing the same entry level job. makes a lot of sense, huh?

Oracle Applications Business Analyst - R12 (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 16, 2017
Management was oblivious to many people's talents and drive. Most of the time my manager didn't even know what my job was. Everyone was really nice. The culture is great. Good people.

Biggest complaint is Corporates involvement and micromanagement. Field location management is great! Job can be very stressful and demanding of your time.

Great Culture with Leadership Needs
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Spring, TXFebruary 15, 2017
Typical day includes project work and end user support. Direct management and leadership is very valuable and always looking to push you further. Overall culture at SWN is very family oriented, people first mentality. Hard to find in growing organizations who are trying to compete with the larger competitors. Enjoy the working relationships that have been built, making that the best part of each day.

Senior Appraisal Geophysicist (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 14, 2017
Flexible hours, friendly staff, 9/80 schedule. The new building has a lot of desirable amenities such as a gym, cafeteria, covered parking. The furniture in the offices is rather small. They have standing desks which is convenient.

It's a good company and nice work life balance. The management is very considerate and the co-workers have a great attitude. You could take the Kids to work once a year and show them the place and they have a great educational exposure and fun time.

Used to be a great place. But layoffs cut too deeply and much of the culture is gone.
Senior Staff Analyst (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 9, 2016
SWN used to be a great place to work. The culture was great. The leadership listened. People were paid well. After the 2016 layoffs all that culture left as well. The Layoffs were too deep and everyone that was left had too much work for too few employees on miniscule profit margins. Essentially the culture left and all that was left behind was a humorless, unrewarding, extremely demanding sweatshop.
Pros
Pays moderately well
Cons
Work life balance is non existant, Very chaotic leadership, Feels as if everything could blow up at any instant.
