    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits, good people, loads of opportunities for experience from the beginning, different training available out of college

    Cons

    Never ending amount of work, lack of career guidance past the first couple of years, limited upward mobility, seems to be a lack of vision and forward planning from the executive level

    Advice to Management

    More career planning and guidance for employees, more forward planning for the company

    Pros

    Hands off management, great place to work if you are creative and proactive

    Had seem to loose perspective at the Global scale and retrenched to what they know better, ie Lower 48.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job in the US, need to rethink where they would like to be Internationally

    Pros

    The teamwork resulting from a mutual hatred of being beaten down on a regular basis. Good people that are hard to keep.

    Cons

    The top down management mentality that senior management holds a "station" within the company permiates the rest of the organization leaving the rest of the workforce dismayed. With little to no governing process and 90% of decisions being made on emotional bias not data it's hard to get anywhere. The executives use the employee base as their own personal tools for whatever suits their fancy that day and have no concern for work life balance or prioritization. This conduct is then reproduced via management through fear mongering at the lower levels resulting in a chaotic mess where everyday is a fire drill.

    Advice to Management

    There's a reason your A-Team talent is going elsewhere and it's not just for better pay. Apache used to be an outstanding company with a rich heritage of doing things differently. Realize that your employees are your greatest asset, ALL OF THEM, and understand that the soft benefits won't carry you forever if you keep beating on them. Wake up!

    Worst IT project management structure. No project managers. Expects technical people to manage and deliver projects while still delivering the technical sides.

    Advice to Management

    Start adding some project delivery structure
