Anadarko Petroloeum is a growing company and may be losing some of what has made it great. There must be a concerted effort to remain nimble.

    I have been working at Anadarko Petroleum as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Good informative rotation and friendly people. Challenging both positive tasks to complete. A good program for students and new hired fresh graduates.

    Cons

    Challenging tasks and high expectations on the assignments. Busy people around, sometimes interns need to learn and search by themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More developed internship program.Other than that, it is great.

    I have been working at Anadarko Petroleum full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Anadarko seems like a wonderful company to work for if you get hired.

    Cons

    If you come in as a contractor, good luck, don't plan to be hired very soon if at all because you're competing against everyone's family and friends. Anadarko is the definition of Nepotism.
    Plan to keep your job title for a few years as I've seen only one person in a year change titles and advance their career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people that are best for the job not the person whose mom or dad already work there.
