    I have been working at Apache full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule: every Friday is a half-day, work 9 hrs M-Thurs. 401K and Pension plan 3 weeks vacation

    Cons

    Micro-managing (as of late) Compensation is sub par for the industry Lack of communication

    Advice to Management

    Recent changes in accounting created dreary and micro-managing work enviroment. What use to be a positive, fun, and relaxed atmosphere is now quiet, tense, and unsettling. Supervisors were 'rotated' and prior supervisors who knew every answer to a question and were admired for their openness and honesty have been replaced with supervisors who have little to no experience with our particular department and micro-manage on a daily basis. Additionally, the divesting is creating an environment of uncertainty which leads to talented employees looking elsewhere for growth and stability opportunities. Stop "messing up a good thing". Rotating supervisors and managers not only leaves employees unsure about their future, but it creates chaos and uncertainty. Many have left as a result of this change due to the new supervisors micro-managing and communication styles (or lack thereof). I planned to retire at Apache and am now leaving because of the aforementioned concerns.

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

    Pros

    Great people to be around, flexible schedule

    Cons

    If you work too hard, everyone will pile work onto you. I tried to take on more responsibilities so I can stand out from the crowd, only for all the upper management to forget, and just pile more work on me with crap (contracted) pay while everyone else does the same thing.

    Advice to Management

    Hire your contractors that have been there more than a year.
