Lack of Strategie

The company continues a long tradition of having only a vague upstream strategy driven by existing assets, like monetize stranded gas or develop unconventionals. Decisions are typically proposals from lower management to do obvious projects which are... —  read more 

Demotions for promotions

Gotta make room in the budget for all the executive hiring and promoting. So, who's ready for demotions next month? JC if we're an Apache family then where's my invite to your dinner table? I'm hungry

No incentive to do my best

If there's a reason to go out of my way and do anything but the bare minimum at Apache I can't find it. Initiative and hard work are only rewarded with more work and nothing else. No pay increases, no bonuses, no promotions, nothing. Mediocrity seems... —  read more

Where to go?

I'd be happy to leave as some are suggesting but where can I go? I've been sending out my resume left and right for the past six months and I haven't even been able to land an interview yet. Where are these companies that are hiring? I can't find any... —  read more 


To all my current and past Apache colleagues I hope 2021 is brighter and more prosperous for you than 2020. I also hope that Apache is bought or JC and his multiple layers of nepotised henchmen are canned. Here is to hope!
