Why the hate

Just wanting to know why the changes at the top in Denver? I guess the fat references got it canned last night great job APC!!!

Big Money Big Money

Anyone know what bonuses will look like come March? I want to know if I’ll be able to pay off the credit card debt I’ve amassed from buying useless $h1t people sell on the classifieds board.

APC Christmas Party - Denver

I'm going to check out the APC Christmas party this year and reconnect with old friends and co-workers. Could someone please post when and where the holiday party is in Denver? I thought I would stop by and say hi..maybe grab a few drinks and rub... read more

Apples Pears and Cherries

It sounds like a lot of people are unhappy in their jobs at Donnie Darko. I have a solution that’s worked wonders for me over the last few years, and it could work for you too. Just activate your imagination and pretend you’re doing something that’s... read more

Cray Guh

Anybody know if “cray-guh” is going to whiting too?

Denver Office

I heard a rumor that they’re going to close down a majority of the Denver office before year end, leaving only essential personnel like HR, mail room, and janitorial staff. Has anyone else heard the same?

Anadarko has one sole function

This corporation is structured to function solely to pay lavish compensation on insiders. Members of this fraternity are admitted only based on their ability to increase the size of the trough at which all of the hogs feed. Shareholders, customers... read more

Worst Departments

Anybody have any insight on which departments have the most toxic environment? I hear rumblings daily.

EC Reviews Headcount?!?

I've been hearing from my manager that Walker and the crew now spend their weekly meetings reviewing all new hires. Is that possibly true? Seems such a waste of time (for those making millions a year, and losing APC billions a year). What leadership... read more

Forecast

Does anybody have the long boarding forecast for Vail Pass tomorrow? I'd like to skip out before the town hall and shred some asphalt. If I have to listen to the execs pat each other on the back while the company goes down like the Titanic one more... read more

Anadarko buying Noble?

Anadarko buying Noble. Overheard the baboons talking about it. Sounds like it's all but a done deal at this point. Expect announcement early next week. This rumor has been persistent for months now, I wonder if we are actually going to find out once... read more

Message in a Bottle

Hey Al, if you can hear us over there in San Diego, would you mind sending a few of your inflatable pool toys? And maybe some of that California sunshine too?

People Leaving APC

I spoke with an old APC co-worker this morning whereby he mentioned Anadarko is experiencing a large number of people leaving for better opportunities. Several key players in the Denver office have decided to move on which begs the question...why do... read more

Position goals!

So to make goals to leave the comfy & cushy Woodlands positions and strive to relocate at the company's babies...Midland & Denver? That is the common question of many!

Perks

Does anyone know what sort of perks management gets? I hear they have some hunting lodges.

Out with the old, in with the new

On a the new hires. It makes me think the layoffs were more about old timers and money. They could have cross-trained people to do other things. Unless it is a very specific job people can be cross-trained. This is especially true in the world of IT... read more

Cash Flow Problem

"If the company were to grow its cash flow from operations from 2Q17 by 10% in each of the subsequent quarters, then it might still face a cash flow deficit of $207 million in 3Q17 and $85 million in 4Q17, as per my rough estimates. In this case, for... read more

"Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC) -4% AH after reporting a steeper than expected Q2 loss and cutting its 2017 capital budget by $300M to an estimated $4.2B-$4.4B because of depressed oil prices." seekingalpha.com

We are losing talent left and right

I've had frequent discussions with current APC employees in multiple disciplines and you're correct - the moral couldn't be worse. The frequent thread is that many of the survivors of the big one were the people who should have been let go even... read more

Conversations With Current APC Employees

Well folks, moral couldn't be worse. I've spoken with several current APC employees over the past few weeks, and, well, they are not happy. Not happy at all. Why aren't they happy? Hmmm, let's see... The only assets worth a grain of salt are DJ and... read more

Noble Energy

U want it ...u sure about that “targeted purchase of their DJ asset and the operational efficiency it might bring. " ...WTF ? There is NOTHING efficient in Noble's DJ Basin. There's a reason they have such a high Noble Energy employee turnover rate... read more

Someone please poke the bear

What happened to transparent communications. Isn't open communication one of the proverbial "core values"? The darko has gone silent regarding any news worth hearing. Any insiders know the scoop? Would at least like to hear an acknowledgment from the... read more

Isn't it funny how some topics are removed?

Anadarko Stock

June 28, 2016, APC stock amounts to $53/share. June 28, 2017, APC stock amounts to $43/share. It appears Anadarko is doing great and is headed in the right direction... Ananoble...I like it!

Walker

im planning to raise a petition to fire Al Walker

Woodlands

I don't see the company leaving the Woodlands. The company has to stay in Houston so it's not moving to CO. Too many in management live in the woodlands and enjoy the soft life. The towers are comparatively cheap facilities because of the county tax... read more

Anadarko looking at acquiring Noble Energy

I'm not sure how long this has been in the works, although the employees at Noble seem to think it's been awhile. Noble is looking for a suitable purchaser to cash out the current management. Anadarko asked them to clean up the balance sheet, and... read more

APC is a place to work

I've been working at APC a long time now, it isnt the greatest place to work, but isn't the worst. I'm in the mill generation, yeah Walker is a poor performer, over paid, missed on billions, and we lost a lot of good people in the process. Yes we... read more
