I have been working at Anadarko Petroleum full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Strong company, excellent benefits and compensation compared to peers

Cons

Company is large, red tape and territorialism sometimes makes things difficult to get accomplished. To get a suggestion for change implemented to improve safety or profitability can be mired in territorialism and red tape to the point that suggestions for change in order to improve are often avoided by every day employees. When you have a suggestion to improve operations or maintenance, there are several departments and layers of management that have to approve before even considering the suggestion. There is big money being lost by the company due to the time it takes to make changes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stream line processes involving change to facilities. Give local managers more clout to get changes implemented.

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

    Pros

    The company culture is amazing. Oil and gas has a reputation for being very conservative. Anadarko is a very progressive company that allows for innovation and entrepreneurship. Decisions are made at much lower levels in the company than in "supermajor" oil and gas companies. Pay and benefits are very good, and the amount of time off is much higher than other companies I've seen.

    Cons

    Stock depressed due to ongoing Tronox litigation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As Anadarko continues to grow, maintain the culture and core values that have made the company so successful and such a positive place to work.
