Former Employee - Geophysics Intern in The Woodlands, TX
Former Employee - Geophysics Intern in The Woodlands, TX

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

Pros

Open door policy, people easy to get along with, quality mentorship without micromanagement, good pay, 9/80, flexible schedule, fun projects, happy hours and after work events, seemingly good values and business practices

Cons

Some expectations are vague, feels like you are expected to work extra hours to compete with other interns, full time hiring procedures not the most forthcoming

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay the course

    I have been working at Anadarko Petroleum full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    (engineer) Can't say enough good things about APC....compensation/benefits are outstanding, work/life balance is actually generous, opportunities are abounding if you seek them out, job crafting is yours to make. Responsibility is enormous (not a place for someone who wants to coast) and you will often find yourself wear pants sizes 2-3 sizes too big (metaphorically speaking), however, help is available when needed.

    The core values are lived out and our performance reviews are based against these

    Cons

    Personally its hard for me to say anything negative....I have seen other dissatisfied reviews from other departments and that's unfortunate, however, it seems like the vast majority of these reviews are coming from interns and contractors. I have not met another direct hire that seemed unsatisfied, it does seem that APC needs to focus more on these other key areas, we do rely heavily on our contractors. Not in my department, but I have seen other contract personnel treated unfairly and this should never happen, when we do this we cut our own throats

    However, contractors in my department are treated as equals, given the same amount of responsibility. etc...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job! Inspiring leaders living out core values

    Focus on treatment of contractors and interns
