    Pros

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

    Cons

    As 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 ManagementAdvice

    "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.

    Pros

    They are generous with vacation policy and they have a pension plan. The office is set up nice and they have recently remodeled floors and we have new furniture. There is plenty of room. They offer good benefits and our portion of the medical premiums is very low. I think that they care about their employees. Chuck Davidson is very nice and comes to town to communicate with the employees about how the company is doing.

    Cons

    Management is not very good. My manager does not communicate with the entire group - only a few. Some of the management is not held accountable for things they do. They need to improve on this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more communication. Hold members of management more accountable.

    Strange Environment

    I have been working at Noble Energy

    Pros

    Pay is good and hours are flexible.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Take 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.

    Pros

    Even though the company is growing by leaps and bounds, management within the Denver office seems to take the time to acknowledge individual employees. Within my department, we have managed to keep the small company atmosphere.

    Cons

    Some department managers seem somewhat abrasive and uncaring. As the company grows more procedures and processes are implemented that take away from the actual "work time". Too much time is spent filling out forms. Along with this, employees are being compartmentalized. They do their one piece of the process and pass it along for the next piece and don't get enough exposure to see the big picture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to moral within some departments. Top management needs to be more in tune with how employees feel that they are treated.
