    I have been working at Noble Corporation full-time (less than an 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.

    I worked at Noble Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    Pros

    pay and benefits are good, rotation are good 21/21 for GOM employees

    Cons

    does not enforce the Code of conduct policy, racist remarks are the normal acceptable behavior, do not complain about being discriminated, you will be terminated, HR department is a joke, if you do feel discriminated document everything and notify your local EEOC office and discuss with them about your best way of handing this situation,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce your code of conduct policy, even though it is strict on paper on the job it is not enforce

    Pros

    Long Hours. They hate people with families. Job here would be good for single people who hate their own free time

    Cons

    Would never advise anyone to work for Noble, they have such a high turnover of employees and I was told once that I'm a professional so just deal with it. Then been told when working 70+ hours per week that I wasn't working enough hours!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management need sensitivity training. Like working with a bunch of school kids.

    I have been working at Noble Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I like the time off of course. I work a 28/28 rotation. The pay is good, although not on par with other companies. Noble is a company that you stake your future on. Even when times are slow, Noble will generally retain it's Employees. The company offers training at the Employee's convenience, and doesn't place a lot of pressure in completing 100% of it. this is good because most if not all of your training must be done on time off. The SAP maintenance program is top of the line, and easy to use. Rig managers are generally good people, with the occasional redneck exception.

    Cons

    The pay is good, although not on par with other companies. Noble bends and bows at the whim of the oil company, often causing you to have to do double the work, and spend double the time on useless tasks. The pay for my job is higher on "Premium" drilling rigs such as Drillships or Semi-submursibles within Noble. The Barge Engineer on a Jack-up does the job of an RMS, and a Barge Engineer on the "Premium" rigs, but Management fails to see this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Equalize and review pay scales between similar positions on different rig types. Re-evaluate job titles and provide equal attention to the Jackups as you do between the Semi-subs and the drill ships.
