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

    Pros

    This company allows all employees to have the freedom to explore and make decisions. You can take ownership over your work and be proud of the work that you do. There is almost immediate value added to the company, even in an entry level position. It is a very enjoyable place to work. I would be hard pressed to find better pay and benefits.

    Cons

    I work long hours, but that is expected in any entry level engineering position. I have no additional ones at this point, but will update if any arise.

    Pros

    Apache is an excellent place to work with the freedom to tailor a career to suit any person's ambitions.

    Cons

    With the recent oil boom in multiple regions Apache has not been as selective about hiring employees as they should be.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to recognize the future leaders of apache and foster an environment where they can develop a clear career path.

    Pros

    -Very smart, talented people. -private offices for most IT staff -good UNIX and Windows IT, very knowledgeable -Steve Ferris is great -stock plans are hugely amazing great if they ever meet the targets

    Cons

    Employees were actively encouraged to poke their heads in on anything that could possibly be in their sphere of knowledge, so any sort of activity you did would be constantly interrupted with well-meaning suggestions from every approach. -lots of legacy employees who were promoted to that position years ago, then failed to pan out as far as technical knowledge leaders -constant pressure -lots of single-point of failure knowledge systems "e.g. Jeff is the only guy who can do that so wait for him to get back to you" -very budget-driven -complete failure to recognize that on-call time is time employees never get back. -huge 2-terabyte SAP database that they never could get approval to archive -raises use a bucket system, your supervisor only has a few grand to hand out for everyone.

    Cons

    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.

    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 Management

    No, advice for Senior Management.

    Pros

    It offers a great work and life balance. It is fairly easy to move to positions in other departments. Bureacracy is kept in minimum. Apache is growing fast and creating great opportunities for all of us. At the same time, management is very conservative and keeps the leverage at the managable level. Senior management is doing a fairly good job communicating with lower ranks of the company.

    Cons

    Also, Apache needs to make a change in their stationary supplies. I need to contact my supervisor every time I need supplies. We need better interaction between different accounting groups. Also, almost no training is offered at the headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    Organize team work events to bring people from different departments together and increase communication between groups.
