    Pros

    Good insurance, 401k and retirement

    Cons

    Management out of touch with our roots. Mr plank had it right the first time. Field personnel should be as import to our future as corporate personnel . Banking way too much on bogus alpine high discovery!

    Advice to Management

    Please remember our roots, we can be a great company again but not Gna happen until we all get on track and prioritize and remember who and what made Apache a great place to be a part of.

    Pros

    -The PEOPLE at Apache is what makes it worth coming in every day. The team I work on is full of great people overall.
    -Work / Life balance is perfect. People here all have families and are understanding. We work hard to get things done when they need to be and have fun when there's downtime.
    -The work can be challenging at times, mostly when you decide to go out of your comfort zone and really apply yourself to projects
    -Compensation is great: Base salary (very competitive), cash bonus, equity at all levels, big 401k match, FSAs, quality insurance, and a pension-style retirement contribution

    Cons

    -Sometimes we can get bogged down with meetings and inefficiencies, however that should be changing as management has really embraced an attitude of change around here (hired consultants to lend an unbiased eye too).
    -Upward mobility can be stale sometimes but this is typical in any industry job, you just want to wait your turn because there's a lot of people above you with a lot more experience and they don't have to leave. Sticking it out pays off.

    Advice to Management

    Keep embracing change and efficiency improvements, we're on the right track.

    I worked at Apache full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nothing good about them anymore.

    Cons

    Buddy system. Bunch of kiss ups got to be supervisors. They want that in return. Can't trust anyone. They will screw you over especially if it will make them look good. No loyalty. All about themselves. I could go on and on. Had to give them one star because it wouldn't take 0 stars.

    Advice to Management

    Clue in. The little man is what makes the company money.

    Decent benefits, fairly competitive salary, good people.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Workout room and cafe onsite. Many training programs available.

    Cons

    They work you a lot. It seems as though management doesn't care much about the little guys as much as the big executives and managers. They tend to keep around people with negative attitudes.
