A place where you have to know somebody to be somebody
Driller (Former Employee) – Conway, AR – June 17, 2013
The culture and values of this company are great, I personally think that there are some people who do not like change. so It was a bad experience for me. "those who can not live with change are destin for doom"
Productive work environment, excellent benefits and pay
Drilling Operations Team Lead (Former Employee) – Conway, AR – August 8, 2017
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.
Asset Deployment Lead (Former Employee) – Spring, TX – July 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.
mom and pop drilling outfit that thinks they are better than they really are
Roughneck/Floorhand (Former Employee) – Tunkhannock, PA – July 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?
Motorman (Former Employee) – West Virginia – May 16, 2017
Poor upper management most of the superintendents don't have but a year or 2 in the field. Good pay and some good people most of the upper management is afraid of losing there job so it goes downhill but if I had to go back I would for the money
Analyst (Current Employee) – Spring, TX – February 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.
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.
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.
Pays moderately well
Work life balance is non existant, Very chaotic leadership, Feels as if everything could blow up at any instant.
