  1. "Accounting Summer Internship"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Access to all levels of management due to the open door policy, opportunities to make meaninful contributions by performing value-added duties, strong emphasis on developing presentation skills and interacting with upper management, core values are central to all aspects of the company and are highly enforced, incredible amenities and work-life balance (9/80 schedule, on-site cafeterias and fitness centers).

    Cons

    Long internship (13 weeks) and rigorous work schedule can force you to change your summer plans to be able to complete the internship. The business is obviously sensitive to commodity prices, so interning during a down period reveals some discouraged outlooks among the full-time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to demonstrate and uphold the core values, continue to emphasize mentoring and the development of staff accountants, continue to position Anadarko as an industry leader

    I have been working at Anadarko Petroleum full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, good vacation time

    Cons

    Anadarko is no longer the great company it used to be, upper management is not transparent, very little trust of management in general, lots of favoritism, no longer holding true to their values, people are scared to speak up because of retaliation

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management needs to be more transparent. Employees no longer trust management. Poor behavior is tolerated and has become the norm since values are no longer enforced.

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

    Pros

    Competitive pay/benefits, lots of training opportunities, good (could improve) down line communication, great culture, model company for others.

    Cons

    Can be too social/political on hiring/promotions - should be “who is better for this position,” not “who do you know”.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your strengths, including top performers - NOT just top socialites. True loyalty is more valuable than fun/interesting social hours.
