    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, half-day Fridays.

    Cons

    Upper management, incompetent and unprofessional employees in the Land Department, no real accountability.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency, better decision making, and bring back the positive, employee-focused working environment under Chuck Davidson.

    Pros

    Fast paced, challenging, lots of opportunities for lateral and upward movement, ability to define roles and grow with company, dynamic, adaptable, good co workers and leadership in most areas, awesome regions to work in like Israel, Falklands, Gulf of Mexico, industry leader in GOM when it comes to regulatory relationships, partner of choice, you can make an impact and difference in your company and the bottom line

    Cons

    Growing pains, need more leadership development, continue to recruit good talent, need to displace contractors, need to establish good processes and controls, better organization, communication to break down silos, training, more transparency and longer term strategies

    Advice to Management

    See above, less HR and Finance driven decisions and initiatives, improve your IT support!

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice workweek with 1/2 day Fridays

    Cons

    Poorly managed, little chance for promotions, "everyone is a manager" resulting with confused direction

    Advice to Management

    If someone is to become a manager, make sure they have the proper skillset or send them to management training before turning them loose on a team

    Pros

    We have jobs Grateful. Some really want to do good for the company. Two new BU managers look promising

    Cons

    Bad hires by old managers dragging down whole land dept and BU Several never work at all Some managers play and cannot do their job and do not care. Chewing tobacco, snuff, and drinking more important to some than getting work done or done right and on time.. Ego city with some staff. Lying to get others in trouble or sidestep blame for errors Lots come in late. Leave early and long lunches. Playing on Fridays. Expense account abuse.

    Advice to Management

    Keep people who work. About half your staff works. Some of the others try to get others to do their work and take credit for it. Abuse of non fav employees by supvrs and mgrs. too many mgrs. stop encouraging drinking. Get someone in charge of cooperation with other depts. train the people who want to work. Lose the rest tell HR to quit trying to run BU and stop bullying people

    Pros

    Gain great experience with the DJ Basin asset and the unique political environment of Colorado.

    Cons

    Lack of clear direction from upper management. Overwork and underpay employees. Many of the talented and well respected employees are leaving Noble for better opportunities, even during the downturn. Many of my co-workers are very unhappy with their careers at Noble.

    Advice to Management

    Be prepared for rising commodity prices by finding ways to retain employees. The golden handcuffs have fallen off and people are and will continue to leave Noble in large numbers.

    Pros

    -Great people -Relaxed work environment -Abbreviated work week (four hour Fridays) -Good benefits -Good pay -Great balance between work and life; the job doesn't consume you like some can and do

    Cons

    -"Performance" bonuses are a large part of overall compensation, and you have little control over how the company performs as a whole, especially in times of lower commodity prices -Appalachian business unit is relatively young, so there are not many standard practices in place
