    Company has gone down hill since joining

    Geoscience (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsResonable culture, above average pay

    ConsLots of managers playing CTB, cover their butts
    No accountability for bizarre requests and unreasonable demands.
    Senior VP's have made promises to Wall Street that they cannot deliver on because they lack the technical know how of subsurface E&P works

    Advice to Senior ManagementDrop the 'do what I say and not what I do attitude'
    Senior managers believe that through the power of GAP that we can find all the hydrocarbons we want
    YA... tell that to the rocks deep in the ground
    Noble's success over the last 7 years was due more to luck than good science

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I was working on a contract basis at the Records Center not the downtown office.

    Land Technician (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsGot to wear blue jeans everyday, worked 9 hours a day with Friday afternoons off.

    ConsLow pay, no chance of advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWorkers at the Records Center should be considered for placement at the downtown office.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lloyd Noble would be embarrassed of this business unit.

    Title (Current Employee)
    Canonsburg, PA

    ProsMoney. That's really all I can say. Money and Benefits

    ConsArrogant managers, key personnel with lack of applicable experience. Some of the long time employees demonstrate what this business unit should be. Every time upper management comes to town it's a dog and pony show.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSmoke and mirrors only go so far. Teach a class on ETHICS since 90 percent of the people here lack them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It's only a matter of time before it implodes

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Canonsburg, PA

    ProsI can't think of any...

    ConsNo management structure whatsoever. It's a kindergartener operated by the babysitter while the parents are on a high profile vacation in Houston. It's on a matter of time until the wheels come off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop promoting people from Marietta, Colorado or your "buddies" and consider the people who are actually doing the hard work and not just crying about it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Strange Environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPay is good and hours are flexible.

    ConsThe environment is very strange. Most of the workforce seems to be contractors, yet contractors seem to be looked down on and fired randomly, like they aren't worth anything. It's strange.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake better control. Pay more attention to your employees (direct and non-direct) and realize they have families to support and homes to pay for just like you do.

    No loyalty to employees management places their own personal gains and welfare ahead of the employees and the company.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNoble has some good people working for them. The pay and benefits are average for the industry but much better than other segments.

    ConsLong hours, disproportionate work loads, unfair compensation policies, a totally management biased HR department, and a bonus system that was once unbiased has been compromised into a totally subjective joke.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDismantle you ineffective HR department and rid yourself of all the mid-management bureaucracy that have added nothing to productivity but have made the company an overhead nightmare in the past ten years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not very positive

    Compliance Specialist (Former Employee)

    ProsPeople were nice and somewhat helpful

    ConsNot enough training and leadership

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore training

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to retire

    Corporate Analyst (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsPay and Benefits are the big Pros here. I really don't see people excited about work or with established career paths. Operations is the backbone of the company and runs great. Their success is only hindered by the poor support and functionality of the rest of the company. If you are looking for a position to ride out your last years in the work force this is the place for you.

    ConsThe departments that support Operations need help. Communication in departments between management and employees is poor. Cross departmental communication is no existent. If you enjoy work and making things happen, like watching your work contribute to company success you will be frustrated here. It will take months for great ideas to be appoved and longer to initiate. The company culture is; "done is good" but is doens't have to be "done good".

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior leaders are truely impressive people however they need to evaluate how their managers perform. Many people have been promoted to their level of imcompetence and are killing the motiviation of employees that want real career paths and to contribute to success. Many employees with great potential are working for people who should be reporting to them. Grasp the potential of information technology and integrate solutions. Establish best practices and use them. Being best is class is more than talking about it.

    "Over promise...Under deliver"

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsA diverse company with a strong balance sheet with great upper level management. Probably will allow a flex schedule and salaries are competitive.

    ConsAs long as you don't ask for anything, you'll be fine. Middle management suffers from a paranoia of individual growth. Don't get me started on empty promises...

    Advice to Senior Management"Best in Class" means more than keeping major projects on budget and on schedule, stay competitive with peers on PTO and growth opportunities...Or you'll keep losing your best people to the big dogs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
