I have been working at Anadarko Petroleum full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Anadarko seems like a wonderful company to work for if you get hired.

Cons

If you come in as a contractor, good luck, don't plan to be hired very soon if at all because you're competing against everyone's family and friends. Anadarko is the definition of Nepotism.
Plan to keep your job title for a few years as I've seen only one person in a year change titles and advance their career.

Advice to Management

Hire people that are best for the job not the person whose mom or dad already work there.
