    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 Management

    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 Management

    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 Management

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

  6. Great place to work with opportunity to grow as a professional.

    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 Management

    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.

  8. I can't describe the satisfaction of work for Noble, is the best offshore drilling company with no doubt

    Pros

    Upward mobility, family oriented, flexible with time off, very competitive pay, retirement benefits, company stock options.

    Cons

    Living in Houston, very cut throat industry, limited respect in the field for the positions given (but that is not a company thing that is an industry thing).

    Advice to Management

    I was told that when I left 13 years ago that I was welcome back at anytime, no one made good on that promise.

  11. Only care about the long time employees
