    I worked at Anadarko Petroleum full-time

    Pros

    Great Salary, benefits - tons of benefits

    Cons

    promote Engineers or Geologists to Managers too fast, too many layers of management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should be trained in people skills and not belittle those without master's degrees, or make it well known they do not respect those with only a bachelor's degree.

    I worked at Anadarko Petroleum as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I felt valued from the moment I stepped into my internship. They wanted to teach me as much as they possibly could in the three short months I was there. I was able to work on projects that were valuable to the team and they continue to use to this day. They also had an excellent work-life balance with the 9/80 schedule. Absolutely loved my time with Anadarko.

    Cons

    The pay could have been a little more competitive but considering the pros it is a pretty could trade off.

    I worked at Anadarko Petroleum

    Pros

    Anadarko's values are well noted and highly valued among employees. Excellent work/life balance for employees.

    Cons

    Would have liked to hear more from leadership within the department I worked regarding overall strategy, vision and plan. Lots of silos. It was not always clear what individual teams were working on, or the impact activities would have on others.
