    Pros

    Great benifits, vacation and retirement package. Friendly team environment for the most part with a good ballance between work and familly.

    Cons

    Have gone down hill in the last few years remembering that the personel in the field is what keeps things going. Upper management has developed a do as I say not as I do culture when it comes to values.

    Benefits are amazing and the friendships will last a lifetime. APC is very good to its employees and the community

    There is a lot of favoritism and promoting when there should be to deserving individuals. Upper management puts their head in the sand and doesn't realize what they really have.

    Just another O&G operator

    Oct 30, 2015 - Supply Chain Representative in Houston, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great benefits as many other oil and gas operators provide. Great location with those with families. 9/80 schedule and general work life balance very good.

    Cons

    Weak upper management in roles APC sees as 'support' create an inability to push forward real operational efficiency changes. Not isolated to Anadarko but across most O&G operators. With the price of oil down though hopefully APC as well as other O&G companies can learn to value what scm can actually do for the industry as out of the box thinking and innovation for cost management and operational efficiency are critical in survival.
