What percentage of Apache are Altus employees? What’s next for Apache…slimming down to be acquired?
Those who believe Apache is at the top of its game make me laugh. Most of the smart, technical people who kept us at the top have left years ago. With the leadership we have right now, I'm shocked we're still standing at all! Nobody wants to work... — read more
Other companies are doing whatever they can to keep their best people, while Apache is so determined to get rid of them that it's willing to pay them to walk away. Others are offering raises where this place is offering severances and nobody seems to... — read more
One day you seem on top thinking you are doing great. Next day you seem on bottom wondering if you are being replaced.
Sounds like they are making some rounds today…. Or phone calls I guess…
Ever since I finally accepted that they don’t care about employees at all, it’s been easier for me. I used to be very disappointed, but now there is no disappointment anymore. The only thing I sometimes wonder is what would manegement do here if they... — read more
What are the chances Apache will make voluntary layoffs offer any time soon?
Really upset that they’re making us come back into office. The “hybrid” model is really only 1.5 days not 2. Many of us have proved we can do our work from home and have enjoyed MUCH better work/life balance. They couldn’t even wait til the new... — read more
We're looking for someone with the wisdom of a 50-year old, the experience of a 40-year old, the drive of a 30-year old, and the pay scale of a 20-year old. I know this is supposed to be a joke, but I've been interviewing in the last several months... — read more
One of the main reasons I will leave this company is micromanagement. It puts unnecessary pressure on me and works counter productively. Why so much micromanagement? Is it possible that they don’t understand the point of their job at all? Instead... — read more
According to JC and his minions as of October 18th Covid is done and you are required to report back to the office! People are Apache’s greatest asset, except when it comes to valuing your health, then they decide what’s best for you! — read more
Walked away a year ago. I was petrified that I was making the biggest mistake of my life. While it was a bit rough at first as it usually is with any new position, I'm now in a much better place than I was a year ago. I just wanted to let the people... — read more
So some people are so fed up they are leaving without another Job. That should tell you EVERYTHING!!!! No room for growth and playing games isn't looking so good now is it?
This is the only company I’ve worked for where slackers are more valued than employees who give their best. The harder I worked, the harder it became because I kept getting even more work along the way, while the hardest part for the slackers was... — read more
Morale is so low. Micromanagers need to GO. People are leaving your groups for a reason. Apache used to be a Fun place to work. Even with lots to do. Now, nobody wants to even think about working here. Too many good people retired and these... — read more
Is anyone paying attention to the multi billion dollar APA P&A liability looming in "Fieldwood 1" which is being operated by the same company who filed bankruptcy twice in 2 years and now calls themselves QuarterNorth Energy?
Of course everyone is more or less on the edge after constant layoffs in the last two years. People can't focus on work because they are worried about what will happen tomorrow. What I expected from leadership was to at least find some way to... — read more
Board, do your job.
I have so far tried to develop an effective relationship with my bosses, until I got my fifth boss. Then I gave up. It’s not worth making much of an investment because I knew that one too would be replaced quickly. How can anyone get what they need... — read more
Hmmmm. Is there something coming????
Apache has turned into a soulless company driven by nothing else but the almighty dollar. They couldn't care less about any of us. If some numbers cruncher decides that any of us make too much, we're gone. It doesn't matter how long we've been here... — read more
Round and round it goes, where it stops nobody knows!
I know layoffs are coming, we all do, so that's not what I'm asking. I'm wondering if anybody has any info on when, how many, what will be hit... Basically, any details other than "the winter is coming" kind of foreshadowing. I'm tired of worrying... — read more
A while ago it was worrying because people were leaving all the time. All my great colleagues have found their way out. Well, now all of a sudden I don't hear the news that anyone has left. Either the departures have slowed down a bit or there is... — read more
They can engineers, geologists and professional staff, yet keep an assistant for each Exec on 14? This is a 1500 person $19/share company. The execs at Apache are SR Managers at more prestigious companies. How do they justify this? Someone needs to... — read more
Just wow. I'm pro choice and vaccinated but Sheesh. How will Apache handle?
So this board tends to get all hyped up and concerned about Covid than forgets about the topic for days & weeks at a time. I guess now that everyone is afraid of being RIF'd Covid takes a back seat.
Any positive feedback?
More assets sales. Office closures, layoffs, nothing positive it seems. But why are we hiring Expert level geo positions?
I want to love my job once again. I truly do. But frankly, the company is making it harder and harder. I'm at the point where it's really hard to imagine that things could be any worse anywhere else, and they certainly could be better. I've been here... — read more
So how many days a week are y’all choosing to be in the office on this new survey we were sent? I was debating between 1 and 2 but ultimately ended up choosing just 1.
I wish there was more communication about Covid cases at work. Most of the people are still going to the office. So we, the more concerned ones look bad. I know more people inside and outside work that have had Covid lately. Way more cases than last... — read more
Some really good, some not. Regardless, is anyone noticing on 14?
So after retirements and layoffs. Is the plan to gut all the seasoned employees? Everyone seems new, entire new departments on a whim.....
Execs appear to be looking at organization as a whole and realizing what the market has for years - Apache is not a sustainable company. Apache’s assets are not great, inventory is poor, debt is too high, and the entire future of the company is... — read more
How do they expect someone to be concentrated and do their job as best they can, if at the same time listening to how there are people infected with the virus in the office? The situation worries me a lot, I take this virus very seriously and it... — read more
All these new positions for hire...... what's that about. What change is coming? Must be nice to have budget to hire people......
Have you seen an increase of cases at work with the Delta variance?
