    I worked at Anadarko Petroleum

    Cons

    It was busy work that was too expensive to automate. Some of the data auditing projects were huge and took a portion of my soul.

    I worked at Anadarko Petroleum full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    This company was amazing to work for. It was large but felt like a family. Please genuinely cared about others and their work. They had some of the best over all benefits in the industry.
