Technical Analyst III (Former Employee), The Woodlands, TXApril 16, 2014
Pros: free lunches, close to home, gym and in house cafeterias
I wore many hats as a Contractor at Anadarko. I worked heavily and primarily as a Trainer\Mentor for all new Global Support Analysts (Helpdesk). The Helpdesk at Anadarko is setup as a Tier 2 or tier 3 role as the amount of knowledge, and tools that are used are far advanced and beyond any other Helpdesk environment. I wrote all training documentation, – more... trained and Mentored all new Analysts, I also worked as a Quality Assurance Analyst, answering and fielding questions all day from new and experienced Analysts.

I learned I loved helping people, while remaining patient. I also learned I had a natural ability to retain so much information, that I became the renown "Go-to" person. Almost all situations I looked at as a potential training opportunity. I had a great relationship with Management and worked well with all my Managers, which resulted in a deep mutual respect. I was moved to various departments through my tenure at Anadarko, but it made me a great resource as knowledge grew and was readily shared with everyone.

The hardest part of my job, being challenged trying to keep up with the demands on my time and resources. The best part of my job was working with my team mates, teaching training and watching co workers grow into wonderful new Analysts. – less

Best professional ehs learning experience
Independent EHS Consultant/Contractor (Former Employee), Delaware BasinApril 7, 2014
Pros: self contractor
Cons: no healthcare benefits
A typical day at work involved stimulating improvements to HSE procedures and safe work practices, attending operations meetings, site audits, lead initiatives to promote visible and pro-active management commitment and employee involvement, and assist management with any ehs need they may have. I learned to plan, organize, implement, and evaluate EHS – more... program for major oil producer. The hardest part of the job was arriving to a well blowout that killed 3 workers and having to extract one deceased worker from derrick and set up incident command. The most enjoyable part of the job was creating awareness about oil& gas safety to prevent injuries and fatalities. – less

It was a good experience. It was difficult working in Gillette at times living out of a hotel room and working in the field but I learned a lot and was able to assist the team with the maps I created and work I did. The management was very kind and hard working and I had a wonderful experience in the Woodlands preparing to head north. It is an overall – more... very good company. – less

Temporary Job (Former Employee), Liberal, KSApril 22, 2013
Pros: great place to work
Cons: temporary job
Came to work and started working on computers that were ready for updateing from XP to Windows 7. Helped clients with any questions they hae on Office or MS programs.
I learned a lot about upgrading and troubleshooting problems with upgrading.
Management was great and very helpful.
Only co-worker was my boss, great guy to work with.
Hardest part was – more... setting up the computers, making sure all the cables/wires were tied up and looking neat for each office. We moved a floor of computers from the 5th floor to the 4th floor. Tore them all down and set them up again, then upgraded to Windows 7 as well.
Meeting all the people who worked there. Helping the people understand how to work Office products and other MS issues they had. – less

Administrative Assistant to Land Manager and staff
Admin. Assistant to Manager of Land Department (Former Employee), Houston, TexasDecember 29, 2012
Pros: learning about the oil industry
A typical day consisted of preparing lengthy land leases to be mailed out, signed and returned for processing. Typing of other lengthy documents. I learned a lot about the oil industry. The land manager was one of the nicest people I have ever worked for and taught me a lot. All of the co-workers were very nice as well. The hardest part of the job was – more... catching the xerox machine to copy the leases so that I didn't delay everyone else on the floor. I loved this job because it was always interesting and you were always learning something new and interesting. – less

Consulting Contractor (Former Employee), The Woodlands, TXAugust 10, 2012
Pros: onsite clinic, workout facilities & cafes
Cons: no breaks, no comingling of employees with non-employees
It was a stressful atmosphere of feeling like you were under a microscope all the time and in everything you do. Supervisors prefered almost non-comunication with contractors which lead to one not knowing what was expected of you, lot's of confusion with guidelines. Distinct feeling of separt treatment of non-employees. You were expendable if you are – more... not an employee and always felt like you were insugnificant. Employee abuse of non-employees and no outlet to resolve any issues. – less

Graphic Design Intern/Contractor (Former Employee), The Woodlands, TXMarch 7, 2012
Pros: wonderful employees, cafe and gym on site, coffee bars and restrooms on every floor, great work environment, great location
Anadarko is unlike any company to my knowledge because it treats its employees incredibly well, and they, in turn, treat each other the same. The group of people I worked with were amazing, fun, and unique. They gave me great advice for my design skills and future and I was able to grow so much as a designer while I was there. I'm not sure if I learned – more... more here, or at school. There were so many great opportunities here to experiment and improve on my design skills. – less
