    I worked at Apache full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People there were fantastic, but ultimately finances motivated some poor decision handling on their end in my personal opinion.

    Cons

    Did not prioritize well-being of incoming new workers during restructuring. I personally do not believe in feeling entitled to any singular position, however I will say it was not great for them to not honor their obligations during the restructuring process and more advance notice could have been given of possible job elimination beforehand as I would have accepted other competitive offers. Would recommend any newly graduating students considering this firm to not accept their offer over another companies based off of this because there was no incentive on their end to honor commitments made, unfortunately.

    Pros

    Apache is a good place to work for those who want to get things done with minimal bureaucracy. People are flexible and good to work with.

    Cons

    The market has been rough the past couple years, and management decisions on company direction have been fairly poor or unlucky. Apache is in a bit of a crossroads at the moment.

    I worked at Apache full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People I worked directly with were great. I was interested in the work that I did.

    Cons

    Don't really care about training (or retaining) young professionals, it's just talk. Negativity with reorg. Upper management does not always listen/care about/or understand the science. Bad upper management culture trickled down.
