    I worked at Apache full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had the most amazing boss I have ever had. An amazing work family.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons. The only stress I've had is the misfortune of being forced to find another job because of Apache closing the Tulsa office.

    Advice to Management

    You are losing some fantastic talent in Tulsa.

    Pros

    Apache is dedicated to employee development, compensates employees at or above the market, allows individuals to own important processes

    Cons

    The company has limited systems and needs some work on processes, growth plan needs to be rethought, asset rationalization is needed

    Advice to Management

    Good direction for the firm recently, strong culture of excellence, great transfer of information. Need to get back to basics and focus on what made Apache - the Permian.

    I worked at Apache as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There was a community feeling to the office. Everyone was willing to help out on your project. The intern projects were not of vital importance, but were projects that the company would have liked done, but didn't have the time for. It was clear that the company was invested in their employees.

    Cons

    There was a constant feeling of urgency, like there was too much work for too many people. Everyone was always in a rush, and as a result, things went badly with some of the drilling plans. The pace that the company set for the drilling caused things to be overlooked and employees to be overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Some work could be done to better the communication between departments. The departments were segregated by floor, so employees from different departments were unable to collaborate easily. There was a definite disconnect between the different branches of the company.

    Cons

    Uncertainty of the company direction.

    Advice to Management

    Remember our founder and his philosophy.
