    So far I have no issues with Apache

    There could be more events such as baseball games or happy hours within regions in order to interact with employees beyond the office in order to boost work morale.

    Former Employee - Senior Department Clerk & Land Analyst in Tulsa, OK

    I worked at Apache

    Pros

    After working in more than one department I know advancement is encouraged as well as education. They like to promote within. Hardwork is rewarded generously, monetary AND non monetary benefits are like no other. And the employees, not just management are fantastic. It is truly an environment that fosters growth both personal and professional. I'd go back in a heartbeat!

    Cons

    I experienced no downsides while working for Apache, had I not relocated with my spouse I'd still be working for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No, advice for Senior Management.
