    Decent benefits, fairly competitive salary, good people.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

    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.

    I worked at Apache (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Are you degreed?
    Do you want to work for a CIO that “hates technology”?
    Are you attractive?
    Do you know how to mingle?
    Do you want to work for management that doesn’t support you?
    Are you superficial?
    Do you lack actual IT skills, but wear stylish socks?
    Do you want to work for a CIO that has never led an IT department, but is a college buddy of the CEO?
    Do you want to work at a company that hasn’t given us a raise in two years?

    If you answer yes to any of these questions, then Apache’s IT department is for you.

    Cons

    Can't think of any because Apache is a great company and there are so many people that look good. I'm not sure they will make their goal of wanting people to work at Apache IT instead of Anadarko IT. Currently Anadarko is still beating them.

    Advice to Management

    Amazing job on building a great team!! Raymond Plank would be so proud of where you have taken the company. Best of luck!
