I worked at Noble Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Noble invests in people, provides with good career opportunities and understands that the key to their success is the close contact between senior management with employees, and leaving the door open for suggestions, constructive criticism and breakthrough ideas.

Cons

Very fast pace environment in the international BU... Very good for those up for the challenge, not so good if you are not too proactive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As they grow and develop outside the US is vital for them to also incorporate non-US talent into their headquarters. It is always good to have a different point reference to help globalization plans.

    Great salaries that don't quite make up for incompetent management and a hostile work environment.

    I worked at Noble Energy as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -excellent oil wages, especially for expat work

    Cons

    Everything else is a con. All upper management is hired and run using the "good ol' boy" system. Gossip fuels business decisions, rather than good sound information. Overseas location management is absolutely inept, incompetent, and self-serving. Hiring/firing for "remote" locations is entirely nepotistic and racially/nationalistically biased. Let's just say that for some locations, you better be British, or you're fired/not hired. To make matters worse, there were very inappropriate relationships discovered between executives that would make the devil cry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Money does not cure all ills! Your pay is excellent, but you have to step up hiring practices. You have got to revisit how you find and select country managers, and stop letting your various locations run rampant with nepotism, gossip-fueled business planning, and inappropriate behavior!
