Huge 401k match, pension-type retirement fund, competitive base salary, equity for everyone, healthy bonuses in good years (typical boom & bust of the O&G industry affects Apache). FSAs and Education reimbursements are available. Vacation, sick days, floating holidays add up to a lot of time off. Half-day Fridays are very, very nice (every Friday) - work 10 hours M-Th (1 hour lunch), and then 4 hours Fri.
Company offers good benefits, but they play hide and seek with one of the most important ones - outplacement. Like a lot of O&G companies, Apache has had several layoffs in the last 2 years. As part of their severance package, they offer an outplacement benefit which gives the laid-off employee a month or two of services from a company that provides everything from resumes to job search and financial counseling. However, while the company provides written material about this service (buried in a stack of other release papers), they don't give the outplacement anything but the former employee's name. No contact info, not even a phone number or email. So many people who are laid off have no idea they have this benefit and never take advantage of it. Which is exactly what the company wants.
Stop programs are not clearly defined and explained to the employees.
Salary and benefits were very competitive, though yearly bonuses weren't as good as some other companies. Stock bonuses each year were good as well.
It's standard oil co benefits = good stuff. Free gym, cafeteria and 4 hours on Fri. Vacation based on industry exp given up front.
Nothing is worst at Apache. I was satisfied with all the benefits they offered me.
The severance package was the worse ever.

Stock grants, 401k match, low cost medical care program
