    Full of very smart people providing reach day to be a learning experience. The company values people willing to make safe, calculated business decisions.

    Considering the downturn and layoffs, have not seen work volumes decrease, that challenges the work/ life balance. Leveraging technology requires training in technology too. Internal communication could be better.

    I worked at Anadarko Petroleum as an intern

    Pros

    The people you work with everyday are some of the best and brightest I've met. They want you to succeed in everyday aspects of work as well as leave with a wealth of knowledge. The culture at this company is one of the best with core values that are put in action, not just words on paper.
    All of the projects given to me were meaningful, everyday work my mentor and coworkers would be doing had I not been there. They were very open for my many questions but still trusted me to complete the work effectively and efficiently.

    Cons

    The housing out in Midland was hard to find and somewhat limited in options.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting the next generation of Anadarko workers. The best part about the management style is the confidence they instill in their young professionals.
