I worked at Noble Energy full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Noble has high salaries and decent benefits. They also paid for parking. At Noble you work 9 hour days and half day every Friday. Noble is a great company, but unfortunately my department had arrogant supervisors that treated employees poorly.

Cons

Some supervisors were borderline verbally abusive. If you are not chosen as their "favorite" you will not be given any opportunity to succeed or lead projects. Noble has extremely inefficient procedures. You need to get ALL your work double/triple checked and approved, often by lower level inexperienced Analysts. They have created a culture of covering your own butt. Very slow processes and some inexperienced individuals make for a huge headache. The supervisors are extreme micro- managers. Many people on the team had poor morale. The CSB building looks and feels like a prison on the inside, no pictures, or art, just white walls and prison guard supervisors. Noble has a lot of talent, few are given encouragement and the opportunity to succeed. Many people keep their head down and fly under the radar and they only stay for the high salary. I wouldn't have stayed as long as I did if it wasn't for the high salary, but in the end my dignity and happiness prevailed. I always had extremely high performance evaluations, which was surprising considering the poor treatment I received from my supervisor. It was a very toxic work environment in my department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Noble hires great talented people that need to be encouraged and mentored. Get rid of bully supervisors!

    I worked at Noble Energy full-time (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.

    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.
