Current Employee - Middle Management in Cairo (Egypt)
Current Employee - Middle Management in Cairo (Egypt)

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

Pros

Egypt is an interesting location, pay is pretty good if you can hang in long enough to get vested in shares, etc.

Cons

Egypt wears on you after awhile. The company tries to make it livable, but for families it can be difficult.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There should be some kind of uplift to work in the Joint Ventures! Work in the JV can be very very difficult due to exposure to all the elements of the Egyptian General Petroleum Company. Upper management of Apache should walk over and visit the JVs from time to time. At least come and chat with the upper management of the JV and walk a day in our muddy shoes.

    Former Employee - Senior Staff Geologist in Perth, Western Australia (Australia)

    I worked at Apache full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Minimal red tape in performing duties (unlike many peers, APA has yet to be paralysed by overblown HR and IT policies); employees afforded a high degree of empowerment for the job level, excellent team rapport, potential for rapid promotion. Proportion of benefit package tied to bonus is much larger than majority of peers - potential for 100% payout in a really good year.

    Cons

    APA has seen tremendous share growth in recent years, but has been relatively flat for the last few, and potentially attractive bonus features (TSR, RSU's) are likely to generate little value in the short to medium term. Length of service and nationality count more than experience. Non-US staff treated as second class citizens with different opportunity set, salary scales and benefit packages. HR staff poorly trained and lack maturity and experience to appropriately manage people moves. Steve Farris coming to end of career and a radical change in management style will liekly occur when he goes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    APA has recently grown into a very big fish in a fairly small pond. Gut feel probably no longer sufficient to generate the shareholder value needed to distinguish from crowd.
