    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

    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

    a few years ago, the pros of this company would not have fit on a full sheet of paper.....now, I have nothing but a nice building. Too bad there won't be anyone in it.

    Cons

    poor management, poor decisions, setting company up for failure.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure who is making the decisions as who to promote and who to let go, but it isn't working - is it? You have to keep people that know what is going on and can help and promote the company, instead of using back stabbers as the basis of the work. Wake up, before you destroy a good company.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, decent 401k match, management is fairly easy to work under, you have the ability to move around, decent culture

    Cons

    Uncompetitive pay, overall pretty poor benefits compared to peer companies, huge disconnect between upper /middle management and lower management/supervisors, and a huge disconnect between lower level management/supervisors and regular employees, very disorganized. Questionable people in all sorts of management positions, not easy to move up. This company no longer has the employees best interest in mind

    Advice to Management

    Where should I start...

    Pros

    Pay and benefits. Work schedule is nice. Many great folks to work with along with a few really awful ones.

    Cons

    Senior managers are not accessible. Lacking competence, ethics and basic leadership. No career path unless you brown nose. It was blatantly obvious who was favored. Don't dare speak up or express any dissatisfaction whatsoever, even if you are a long time, loyal employee. No one cares. If you're not a chosen one, keep your head down and lay low. Do not ever ask for support. If you want to stay, know your place in the food chain. You will have to accept it as it will never change.
    HR seems to run the company and has a CYA mentality. Be very careful if any conflict should arise. They prefer to demolish you rather than help and do the right and thing. I strongly recommend avoiding HR dept at all costs.
    I had opportunities in the beginning of my tenure, and I truly am grateful for that. In the end, I was treated like garbage. I felt like the team I worked for shut down and eventually imploded. Sad, sad, sad.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps allow subordinates to rate their leadership. Make changes when necessary, and do it fast! You are losing high quality intelligent employees. Implement defined career paths across the organization. Stop shoving GAP down everyone's throat!!! It's such a waste of money. Take a close look at HR and how they impact the business.

    Nothing negative to say, people were friendly and open and there was a lot of trust and respect amongst business groups.
