    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!

    I worked at Apache full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were good. There are some really great people trying to do really good work when they get the support needed from management.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lack of vision from the top down. It was really exciting when they were aggressive and growing. They've been stagnant and getting smaller for the last year+. They're not really looking at anything new, so future drilling prospects are getting slim.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. There was a big disconnect between different levels of management and between the managers themselves. It made the work harder to have to do it two or three times because the managers couldn't get on the same page.
