Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

I worked at Apache

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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.
