    I worked at Noble Energy

    Pros

    Good pay rate, standard hours with half days on Fridays. Putting a lot of capital in the future growth plans.

    Cons

    Management is having difficulty with their rapid growth- still a good 'ol boy mentality that will be inefficient in scaling.

    I have been working at Noble Energy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with. Project teams are very supportive and knowledgable. Great benefits..both benefit package and benefits at work (like gym in the office).

    Cons

    Limited room for advancement. Managers seem to make promises that they cannot keep. Executive Management is not involved and seems clueless. Nothing comes from the top down. Everything is from middle management out. Lack of communication between departments creates silos and multiple people working on same initiative in parallel. They need to wake up that they are no longer a mom and pop shop from Ardmore Oklahoma.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with employees. The minute you find out you can't keep a promise, tell the employees. Create better work life balance. A few people seem to do all the work. Respect people's talents and don't preach you want out of the box thinking while you confine individuals to a mold. Stop talking about how the company has no money...get rid of the biggest money waster-GAP!

    I have been working at Noble Energy

    Pros

    Generally, colleagues and line management are supportive and great to work with. High caliber employees.

    Cons

    Left a good, stable company to join Noble only to have my job threatened within months of joining. Red flag is that hardly anyone here has been here longer than 1-2 years. No stability or opportunity for advancement without leaving the company. Do NOT see corporate decisions valuing or putting employees first. Outright lied about compensation in terms of bonus and long term incentives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put employees first and create an environment where people can advance in career and salary internally.

    I worked at Noble Energy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary. Had a great culture

    Cons

    Sr. VPs have lost their way. Once was a great place to work. I recently quit based in part on recent 'chats' senior management had with staff. They believed their GAP training would replace proper and prudent decisions. In their peer group they are now at the bottom based on these avoidable poor decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of GAP, it has replaced formal thinking

    I have been working at Noble Energy as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work hours are good, standard Friday's are a half day so the rest of the week is a little long. Great activity encouragement to engage in healthy activities and give back to the community. Room to contribute to the team.

    Cons

    No family leave time. Need more female managers, kind of an old boy's club. Competent female manger passed over and given 4 new male bosses while she does all the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider reviewing existing employees for management

    Pros

    Strong asset base and diversified portfolio

    Cons

    Management unwilling to bring in outside expertise. All good ideas were cultivated here.They are unable to assimilate and learn from expertise that is not home grown. Classic 'kill the strongest son' syndrome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get outside help before it is too late. You are running a company 10 times bigger than the management talent you have to do so.
