Great core values Awesome location Smart people Real-world projects Extremely competitive pay and benefits Small company feel while still being a generally large corporation Work/life balance is great with the 9/80 schedules
I found very few cons with being an intern at Anadarko. The only thing I would mention is the bureaucracy or working at a corporation. Your communications skills are generally valued much more than your technical skills

The PTO and pay are comperable in the industry, and the 9/80 schedule allows for long weekends- which is nice for people that want that work/life balance
If you don't fit the corporate mold, then consider your career done. They take little to no time trying to fit people in the right positions, and will constantly promote the people that kiss the most a** rather than the people that are competent or hard workers.14

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.
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.1

Anadarko has wonderful employees that are willing to help each other to get the job done quickly and effectively. We have great bonuses, benefits, PTO and tons of wonderful volunteer opportunities. Our 9/80 schedule allows for more free time which helps balance work and home life. Though the job can be demanding and stressful at times, I find that the time I spend with my coworkers and the results we achieve as a team make the stressful times worth it.
Some department managers are stuck in the boys’ club mentality. If you are from the younger generation and are a woman, working in one of these departments means you have to prove yourself more. Having a tough skin will be necessary and you will need to advocate for yourself much more than you would in other departments. I want to stress that not all departments are like this. Many departments are run by men and women who have taken a progressive and proactive approach to managing and assessing the talent within their teams. I do feel it's necessary to point out that one of the cons of working at the company is the boys’ club mentality that still lingers in some departments.4
