    I worked at Anadarko Petroleum full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very collaborative, all supervisors I worked for were supportive and not micromanagers, relaxed atmosphere even under tight deadlines

    Cons

    There are the "chosen ones" who are prepped and groomed to climb more quickly up the corporate ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully Anadarko and Oxy can combine the best of both companies to stay on top of the game.
