    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 Management

    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

    The time off is the key for me. I work a 14 day on and have 14 days off a month. This gives me plenty of time to do the things I want and to plan things in the future. I also get to spend quality time with my family.
    The benefits are great. I have not had one problem with my insurance and the 401K plan is really wonderful. You can put 1% to 50% of your check in up to the amount the IRS allows every year, you are vested as soon as you start and do not have to wait 5 years, and for the first 5 years the company matches you 70 cents on the dollar up to 6%, after that dollar for dollar up to 6%.

    Cons

    We are constantly going to schools to renew licenses or learning up on new programs that have been put into place. The only time we have to do this is on our off time which takes time away from your family.

    Advice to Management

    On the retention bonuses, I believe ALL supervisors and the skilled position personnel should receive one. The way I see it, all your skilled positions had to do some kind of formal training to get in the position they are in today so they should be compensated.

    Pros

    Good company values. Very good benefits.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    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.
