    I have been working at Apache as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good management on platform - really made to feel part of the team. Good people to work with and for. No complaints. Look after their people well. Would love to be on their team full time.

    Cons

    3/3 Can't be helped, as everywhere has pretty much gone 3/3, however, Apache have at least made a good effort and attempted to introduce 4 week holidays during rotation. Not brilliant but they have listened to their people and definitely done more than others have done. All in the same boat at the end of the day, so can't really complain.

    Advice to Management

    None - management where I was was fantastic, and listened and acted upon advice. Brilliant to work for.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, fairly competitive salary, good people.

    Poor management, knee-jerk reactions, lack of direction, constant reorganizations.

    Determine a path and stick with it. Non-stop reorganizations don't help anyone.

    I have been working at Apache full-time

    Pros

    Excellent place to start a career at, as they run lean so rely on young people for actual useful work.

    Cons

    Sometimes communication could be better from upper management but overall it's not that bad.

    Advice to Management

    Trusting people to make key decisions takes guts and a huge leap of faith, but eventually one has to do it or risk undermining the team atmosphere they've worked so hard to build.
