    I worked at Anadarko Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Built great relationships with the team. Was able to do my job as I saw fit, but could relay on upper management and support organizations when necessary to get things fixed.

    Cons

    Small company that didn't have a deep contract portfolio, which limited growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a more comprehensive long-range plan with a focused approach to ensure teaming opportunities are identified and pursued as early as possible, providing a much higher chance of winning new work.

    I have been working at Anadarko Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Anadarko has a higher purpose beyond supporting government contracts. Their profits help an Oklahoma Tribe. The work Anadarko supports and that I support is very interesting work for NASA. Management cares by giving birthday Starbucks cards and employee awards.

    Cons

    Typical small government contractor constrained with minimal advancement - dependent on client needs.

    Advice to Management

    Stay involved and continue communicating to employees.

    Pros

    Management is very supportive and quick to recognize employee accomplishments. They do not micromanage, and the company encourages work/life balance.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities to move up, however that is more about limits of the customer.

    I worked at Anadarko Industries (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I spent 10 years working for Anadarko Industries (AI) and still have an excellent relationship with the company and the people who run it. Every single one is very much dedicated to the success of the AI family. Over the decade I was there, I learned, grew as a professional and was afforded every opportunity to succeed. All you had to do was ask. Work always finds the RIGHT people.

    Cons

    None. None. None. None. None. (This form requires you to type at least 5 words)

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for everything.

    Pros

    Employed as a Workforce Planner on contract with NASA for one year before being asked to head Air Force contract in DC. Company totally backed me, gave me freedom to lead/manage the contract without interference from within.

    Supported me from the onset, gave me the tools to do my job as seen fit, and backed my every move. Their "hands-off" approach to me let me manage my team without thinking corporate would come in and reverse decisions.

    Top level support from President/CEO, VP, and HR at all times.

    Cons

    Growth potential is very limited due to the nature of the business. I had hoped they would find a place for me when contract ended, but not to be. I understand why and accept the limitations and would return to the company if the right job became available.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you continue to take care of your people. They are as much your customer as the one paying the bill.......

    I worked at Anadarko Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Anadarko Industries (Houston, TX) from 2002-2013. I started my job as a buyer and worked my way up to the Lead buyer position. I enjoyed working for Anadarko Industries and would work for them again. I felt like they had a great management team in place. We had a full time manager at our location at JSC that was very knowledgeable about all the procurement processes and had no problem assisting us with any issues that we might have had. The corporate management team was always available to us if we needed them. The onsite manager and the corporate level managers always were ready to acknowledge you when they felt like you went above and beyond your job or did something exceptional. Anadarko Industries takes pride in the contracts that they have been awarded and put the best people in place to work for them. They want their contracts and employees to both be successful.

    Cons

    None.... I had no problems with this company.
