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

Pros

Senior management is very ethical.
There is good software, technology, training available and a desire for excellence by upper management
There are some very good people.

Cons

With the rapid growth from a relatively small independent thanks to some large discoveries, the company is focused on process, succession planning and everything but actual sound work, creativity and individual contribution. Working there became an extremely frustrating experience of endless meetings with incompetent middle managers who knew how to speak the lingo but couldn't recognize let alone initiate something that would lead to real value

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For Senior Management:
Come down from your ivory tower.
Remember what led to the success of the company and focus on those aspects of business
 Stop "drinking the KoolAid" all of the management consultants are pawning off on you.

    I have been working at Noble Energy

    Pros

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

    Cons

    They 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 ManagementAdvice

    Provide 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.

    I worked at Noble Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Resonable culture, above average pay

    Cons

    Lots 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 ManagementAdvice

    Drop 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
