    Apache is dedicated to employee development, compensates employees at or above the market, allows individuals to own important processes

    The company has limited systems and needs some work on processes, growth plan needs to be rethought, asset rationalization is needed

    Good direction for the firm recently, strong culture of excellence, great transfer of information. Need to get back to basics and focus on what made Apache - the Permian.

    Pros

    I had the most amazing boss I have ever had. An amazing work family.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons. The only stress I've had is the misfortune of being forced to find another job because of Apache closing the Tulsa office.

    Advice to Management

    You are losing some fantastic talent in Tulsa.

    Pros

    Apache has very talented people to work beside with everyone focused on the end goal. There is not much room or tolerance for mediocre staff. The new management is making changes to move the company in the right direction.

    Cons

    Granted I have not been at Apache a long time, I do not have many cons to list here. The only struggle I see currently is the divided camps of the 'old Apache way' and the 'new Apache way'...we will overcome this and move our company in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on standardizing and simplifying across the organization. No more silo camps in the regions, we must work together to share our success as a whole. Make sure those that are successful share with all regions so that we can all benefit from the knowledge.
