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

Pros

The core values are a strong base and total compensation is on the high end.

Cons

The core values used more as reasonsto discipline employees than a foundation to create a strong employee base. Compensation policies are completely subjective, the actuality is that compensation does not have a true link to performance just real lose guidelines that are applied by each manager as they see fit.

Advice to Management

Review the performance rating system and it's relationship to comp. Employees rated as 1,2,3 with 3 unacceptable and 60%+ employees rated a 2 makes it difficult to have meaningful performance discussions

    I have been working at Anadarko Petroleum as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The employees are great, the benefits are great.

    Cons

    The pressure and the workload is high. It takes most contractors 1 year + to get hired on, average is 2 years sometimes even more.

    Advice to Management

    If someone doesn't have a degree but is recognized as a extremely hard and dedicated worker, that fits the role with great referrals. Maybe HR should bypass the "Bachelors Degree Required" and give that person a chance. So they can better themselves and eventually start taking classes when the time is right for them.
