Technologist (Former Employee) – The Woodlands, TX – June 20, 2017
APC was a great place to work BEFORE the O&G downturn. Since then the "old timers' with irreplaceable knowledge were severed along with young, forward thinking recent graduates. What is left is mostly middle career people with mediocre management skills clambering for position. The balance is gone! Then, they lost much of the talent with a required relocation to Midland. Still a desirable place to work, but understand the recovery will take a few years.
Great pay and benefits
Struggling to recover from industry downturn and Midland relocation
E&I Tech I (Former Employee) – Carrizo Springs, TX – June 13, 2017
It was a grate place to work, they just did not bring people on full company though. Work day was not stressful if you knew how to prioritize, management was ok some of them were not there to teach, but a lot of them would sit with you and explain every aspect of the equipment down to the smallest bolt. the hardest part of the job is dealing with the hurry up and wait on parts. the most enjoyable part of the job is the people and family you pick up from working side by side with them for so long. even if you work with them for a few months they welcome you in to the job like family.

Anadarko is great place to work. They are good to their employees and help them grow in their career. I was lucky to spend 16 years with them. Throughout my time with them I moved from accounting to records management to operations and was able to learn many aspects of the oil and gas business.

Staff Geoscience Technologist (Former Employee) – The Woodlands, TX – May 7, 2017
Excellent mentorship of staff and promotion of training/learning. In-House fitness center and company "team" environment for staying healthy and happy. Compensations were good and advancement was progressive.
Land Analyst (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – April 7, 2017
Overall, a great company to work for. Like all oil and gas companies recently, the culture has taken a bit of a hit since the fall of oil prices a few years ago. The culture is recovering, and management is doing their best to reward employees for sticking through it. No work from home optionality, which is a benefit when you think about work-life balance. The 9/80 schedule is phenomenal! The dress attire is business casual, which keeps the environment professional yet not overly formal. With the right attitude and work ethic, it's a company you can excel and advance at!

The work was great, I always had work to do. I felt like the work I did was important. My manager was amazing, he made sure to let me know every day how much he appreciated the work I did and was very understanding when I had a family emergency.
Internship (Former Employee) – The Woodlands, TX – March 19, 2017
The staff at Anadarko were very amazing and patient with giving a tour of the office. The workplace culture is very nice and the ideal perfect place to work at. Though I only was given a very short internship thanks to my school.
