    Pros

    After working in more than one department I know advancement is encouraged as well as education. They like to promote within. Hardwork is rewarded generously, monetary AND non monetary benefits are like no other. And the employees, not just management are fantastic. It is truly an environment that fosters growth both personal and professional. I'd go back in a heartbeat!

    Cons

    I experienced no downsides while working for Apache, had I not relocated with my spouse I'd still be working for them.

    Advice to Management

    No, advice for Senior Management.

    With the recent oil boom in multiple regions Apache has not been as selective about hiring employees as they should be.

    I have been working at Apache full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company allows all employees to have the freedom to explore and make decisions. You can take ownership over your work and be proud of the work that you do. There is almost immediate value added to the company, even in an entry level position. It is a very enjoyable place to work. I would be hard pressed to find better pay and benefits.

    Cons

    I work long hours, but that is expected in any entry level engineering position. I have no additional ones at this point, but will update if any arise.

    I was a field intern for Apache, helping with well recompletions, mechanical work, and maintaining production. The internship was very well managed, with an emphasis on training. I learned a lot and was well compensated. Also, a successful internship gives a you a good chance of being hired by Apache in the future.

    Cons

    The hours were outside the typical 9-5 job, starting as early as 6 and days occasionally lasting 12, without overtime.
