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

Pros

Anadarko is one of the best companies in the industry. There is a diversity of work afforded to employees and the portfolio is strong. For employees who perform well, there are a lot of opportunities to advance. Anadarko is growing and there can be some growing pains with this, however they are very focused on keeping the culture strong and aligned to the core values. The benefits are reflective of the values, adoption assistance, strong PTO, 9/80 schedules, secondary bonus system etc. Most companies talk about pay for performance cultures, Anadarko really backs this up with the bonus systems and compensation structure.

No company is perfect, however Anadarko seems to really care about employees, professional development, and being a strong community partner.

Cons

With growth can come growing pains. Some things you would think are established and in process are not, so this can be somewhat frustrating. The company can operate different in different groups – some overall continuity, however execution can vary. Some departments fall back on the “this is how we always done things” which is contrary to the core values, however there are signs that this is going away.

Advice to Management

Continue to focus on developing employees, cross training in different departments if possible.
