    I worked at Noble Corporation

    Pros

    Bonuses, pay, still some good leadership for the most part.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to evaluate some that are in management and superintendent positions. Do not hire at the same time you are laying off employees that have been with the company for years. Giving at least a 2 week notice of layoffs would be nice. There are still some good people in management for the most part.

    I have been working at Noble Corporation full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Room for growth, pay, hours, perks. I love this company, I have been here for a few months an I'm already climbing the ladder. Unlike most companies where you never see VPs or the CEO you actually have the opportunity to meet and speak to all of the above if you work in corporate. Noble Drilling recognizes hard work, most of the people who complain expect to be spoon fed.

    Cons

    Only typing cons because glass door made me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. It's amazing how y'all run a multi-billion dollar company and are some of the nicest people you will ever meet.

    Pros

    Good company values. Very good benefits.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to move around to other rigs if you want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to find a way to listen to the lower ranks' needs and issues without the supervisors filtering out what they don't want the upper management to know.

    Pros

    Company doesn't lay off when others do, pay is very good, benefits are great, short term disability is excellent.

    Cons

    Family culture needs to be brought back, company picnic has been done away with, CEO disconnect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the basics, keep a pulse on whats going on at the main office in Sugarland, start making regular visits to rig personnel and really take their feedback seriously, they only want to make the company better.
