    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. The company shows its appreciation for employees through celebrations, awards, and nice offiice ammenities.

    Cons

    Tenure with the company is low due to rapid growth and some turnover early on, which causes knowledge transfer issues and impacts how quickly we can execute on actitives sometimes as it is often new territory for those involved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to reward and appreciate employees.

    Pros

    Free snacks
    9/80
    Nice office
    Lots of young people

    Cons

    Too many meetings
    Not much direction
    Some members of management are too young and have very little experience
    Pay is based on whether you are a flight risk
    Your bosses bonus is taken out of his staffs bonus pool. If he pays you less he gets more
    To reward someone else management takes it from another

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward performance and don't base pay on who you think might leave

    Current Employee - Geologist  in  Houston, TX (US)
    Current Employee - Geologist in Houston, TX (US)

    I have been working at Rosetta Resources

    Pros

    When you first join the company, the compensation package is above average to encourage people to make the move

    Some young talented staff that work hard and try to do the right thing

    2 Fridays off a month

    Cons

    Lack of long term vision, focus is on short term - long term is sacrified

    Friends in high places causes organization problems - some senior people know that the CEO won't let them go regardless of what happens so they have no fear of losing their jobs, they just manipulate people and behave like chlideren (decisions are more emotional than analytical ie we are going to do this because it is MY idea (& I want to look right) vs we will do this because it increases company profitability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone wants to help their friends, nothing wrong with it, but when your friends are not the right people for the job it is time to make a change. Currently there is nobody internal to take over succession of the company. Some senior folks lack the maturity and stabilty to run the company.

  7.  

    Not performance based, Ex-BR employees are given free reign

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Houston, TX (US)
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX (US)

    I have been working at Rosetta Resources

    Pros

    If you previously worked for BR, you are given the benefit of the doubt and are almost guarranteed to move up in the company. Sr. Management has a comfort factor with those they have worked with in the past.

    Every other Friday off - which is what you will need after the constant belittling (if you are not from BR)

    Cons

    They believe in induced tension - which means they pit people against each other

    Compensation is a zero sum game - for one person to get rewarded it has to come out of someone ele's pocket regardless of performance by the individual or the company

    There is a complete lack of trust internally - fueled by those that get rewarded for throwing others under the bus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually follow your so called company values. Treat people with respect regardless of which companies they worked with in the past.

    People are your best asset. They get things done to support the overpaid top brass. It makes no sense to treat them poorly.

    Put the interest of the company ahead of your own ego. There are numerous examples were poor business decisions were made just so someone at the top could save face.

    I have been working at Rosetta Resources

    Pros

    Challenging work, good perks (free drinks!), good co-workers. Pay is OK, can be a great opportunity if you are formerly from Burlington Resources (BR).

    Cons

    Preference for former BR employees, regardless of skill or competence. Executive management is often unprofessional and disrespectul towards non-ex-BR people. Company's core values are for looks only, the execs don't follow them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live the values you espouse to the employees. Don't be hypocrites. Treat your employees with dignity and respect. Admit that there is a morale problem and work to address it.

    Current Employee - Geoscientist in Denver, CO (US)

    I have been working at Rosetta Resources

    Pros

    OK in Denver- Decent employees, some good technical people. Denver is the step child , if you like that kind of environment great

    Cons

    They pit the Denver office against the Houston office- this is not a sports team. Too much nepotism in their work force

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No structure to the ratings system. No structure to the career ladder- is their one. If you kiss ass- well it might work for you their
