    Current Employee - Drilling Engineer in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Apache full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    This company allows all employees to have the freedom to explore and make decisions. You can take ownership over your work and be proud of the work that you do. There is almost immediate value added to the company, even in an entry level position. It is a very enjoyable place to work. I would be hard pressed to find better pay and benefits.

    Cons

    I work long hours, but that is expected in any entry level engineering position. I have no additional ones at this point, but will update if any arise.
