    I have been working at Anadarko Petroleum full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work life balance is quite amazing. The environment allows you to become your best and work in peace. I would definitely recommend working here.

    Cons

    There are not too many cons that come to mind. The company is pretty well rounded overall. The environment is amazing and the pay is competitive.

    Advice to Management

    The company overall is amazing. The most difficult part is advancement because people don't tend to retire much here! I for sure understand why.

    Pros

    Lots of paid time off, pretty good bonus program, 9/80 schedule, personal wealth account in addition to the 401k program

    Cons

    The culture is definitely in need of some work. In years past it was a great place full of promise, but not so much anymore

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

    Pros

    9/80 work schedule offers amazing flexibility in scheduling. Great work-life balance. The benefits are phenomenal and the people are also great. Overall the culture suffered a bit when the prices of oil fell and layoffs happened, but it is recovering and management is doing an awesome job at pulling everyone together by focusing on core values. Parking/RTD passes are paid for. Gym subsidies. Competitive salaries... the list goes on and the benefits seem endless. Overall a fantastic company to work for!!!

    Cons

    The turnover that the low oil prices has created has put a bit of strain on the people who still remain workload-wise. Nothing unmanageable.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are good, salaries are competitive for the industry, most people have private office and work hours are flexible.

    Cons

    The down turn in oil and gas prices has been challenging for management to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to return to the values adopted during the Jim Hackett tenure. They have gotten off course and need to reexamine their recent behavior.

    Pros

    Lots of vacation days. Killer benefits. Work with a great bunch of guys. They encourage you to take classes and broaden your knowledge of your profession.

    Cons

    Management likes to micro manage and it is only getting worse. It's hurting the company and productivity in the field. They need to cool it or will start to loose employees once other companies start to hire again.

    Advice to Management

    You should focus more on making it a better place to work and retaining your employees.

    Pros

    Great people, outstanding benefits. I loved working there.

    Cons

    Not enough employee recognition for hard work. It seems sometimes it is not your work that gets you a promotion but who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Too many managers.
