    Specialist

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsImmediate supervisors support a work home life. There is no pressure from immediate supervisors to put your work before your family.

    ConsThey do not give goals of career advancement. If employees show interest in advancing their careers and pursue their interest many times they are ignored.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide clear career advancement options for each job title and position. Each employee needs to feel they are appreciated and valued by the immediate supervisors up to the Vice Presidents.

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

    Great Company

    Project Assistant (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGreat company, with strong core values and mission. The company is forward thinking in terms of business and personal. Cares tremendously about personal growth.

    ConsI live outside of Houston, so my commute is awful. It takes 45- 1.5 hours one way.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer more classes/courses about industry for lower entry positions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    OK to work for. Needs some better planning and organization

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsMoney, nice facilities, professional atmosphere

    ConsHuge contract force does all the work. Employees who do the work and have the knowledge are passed over for illogical reasons.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the culture where the work is done by real employees (not just contractors). And reward the employee's with growth and promotions because of the quality and effort put into the work. Avoid promoting people to key positions that don't have the experience or skills relative to their organization.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    OK place to work, not much room for advancement

    Analyst (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsNice people, nice office facilities

    ConsWeak management, lazy coworker, status quo comes above everything else

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more assertive in retraining and replacing lazy employees doing the bare minimum to get by. Also be more open to promoting from within rather than holding people back who deserve career growth.

    No place for minorities

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompetitive salaries and benefits, good working peers.

    ConsThere is a definite but unwritten rule not to hire, promote or retain minorities. A review of their staff would not only show that there is only one African American manager and not one of their African American employees, have been there for over five years. I actually made six, but after five and being promoted to a manager was literally demoted and then accused of poor performance, although the facts do not support the rhetoric. Two previous minorities that were there when I started, were released earlier.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProfessional maturity is required of its senior management; still bigoted and fosters a "white only" atmosphere.

    Good, but not great...

    IT Intern (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsVery personable managers.
    Lots of room for growth.

    ConsI think the environment can sometimes be a little to "lax" ... I like to have a more structured environment with clear direction from my manager.
    I also think that their IT department is not on the right track ... The answer is NOT to see how many third party companies we can use!

    Don't Expect to Move up the Ladder in Supply Chain quickly

    Procurement Agent (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsYou will wear a lot of hats and have a lot of responsibility.

    ConsNoble is very old school - they hesitate in promoting their own people.

    Former Employee

    Business and Operations (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsPay and benefits are good. Overall I liked the employees, job and company. Location has improved with the move to the old Compaq center on 249 and Louetta and out of the ghetto gunslinging area of Greenspoint.

    ConsManagement does nothing to promote from within, develop career paths or encourage collaboration with departments. There is a lot of duplication of efforts. Great place for operations type jobs but not business or IT. IT is deservingly the butt of most jokes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFix it. Take career paths seriously. Operations has already make it a successful company financially but they cant fix the internal problems. Find the gaps of management intelligence and fix them.

    My job is not what I was told it would be - that is why I am searching for another job.

    Land Technician (Current Employee) Canonsburg, PA

    ProsThe benefit package is excellent, working environment is very good. This is an excellent company to work for, however there should be more adequate training, and job duties more explicitly explained.

    ConsThe company is not as organized as it should be, a lot of the employees are not familiar with job duties.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be more adequate on the job training, When hiring job descriptions should be more thoroughly explained.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
