Anadarko is a great company

Analyst (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at Anadarko Petroleum full-time for more than 10 years

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.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
The Woodlands, TX

I have been working at Anadarko Petroleum full-time for less than a year

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.

Company that respects family values and employee opportunities.

Project Analyst (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Anadarko Petroleum full-time for more than 8 years

ProsAdvancement opportunities are available whether or not you hold a degree. As a non-degreed professional, APC has given the the ability to learn new skills on the job, while exploring where/how I would like to direct my future with the company.

ConsWould prefer that there was a bit more leniency for working from home. Particularly if your role is 65% or more done online.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on doing what you're doing! The culture here is very well handled and overall, the experience has been very rewarding.
