    Great Company!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThis is a great company and any one would be lucky for be employed by them. Lots of PTO, great bonus programs, great people to work with!

    ConsNot much to speak of...Maybe if you live in Galveston it might be a drive, but probably still worth it ;-)

    ProsI have been here for 10 years last March. The company has come a long way in those 10 years. Work/Life Balance is important now. This company rebounded from an aging work staff to a younger more competitive workforce.

    ConsTend to get stuck in one position that you are good at.

    Anadarko is a great company

    Analyst (Current Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsStrong company, excellent benefits and compensation compared to peers

    ConsCompany is large, red tape and territorialism sometimes makes things difficult to get accomplished. To get a suggestion for change implemented to improve safety or profitability can be mired in territorialism and red tape to the point that suggestions for change in order to improve are often avoided by every day employees. When you have a suggestion to improve operations or maintenance, there are several departments and layers of management that have to approve before even considering the suggestion. There is big money being lost by the company due to the time it takes to make changes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStream line processes involving change to facilities. Give local managers more clout to get changes implemented.

    Best company to work for in the Houston area.

    (Current Employee) The Woodlands, TX

    ProsThe company culture is amazing. Oil and gas has a reputation for being very conservative. Anadarko is a very progressive company that allows for innovation and entrepreneurship. Decisions are made at much lower levels in the company than in "supermajor" oil and gas companies. Pay and benefits are very good, and the amount of time off is much higher than other companies I've seen.

    ConsStock depressed due to ongoing Tronox litigation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs Anadarko continues to grow, maintain the culture and core values that have made the company so successful and such a positive place to work.
