    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.

    Pros

    Company has good leadership at the executive level.

    Cons

    Lets the chronic complainers have too much voice in the organization. HR gets into everything and runs the company. HR needs to let the business management handle things and only get involved when asked.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the "rat (complaint) line". It causes way more headaches than it helps. Its intended purposes was to catch "rats", but it is used for every small issue that comes up.

    Pros

    After downturns in the oil and gas market, and layoffs in all offices, Noble is in transition. The Canonsburg office underwent a change in management, and it remains to be seen exactly where the office is headed - but it looks promising. Many of the issues from the past management in this office are finally being addressed. The future looks good.

    Cons

    The previous management structure was chaotic and created a lot of bickering among employees. Morale has improved over the last month, but the situation isn't completely settled down yet because we are still in transition. I personally would like to see more minorities here and some women in higher positions, but the lack of that is mostly the result of former management. We'll have to wait and see how the shake-up here shakes out.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a structure where everyone knows their job in relation to others. There are still a lot of "fuzzy" areas and people step on each other's toes, or else they don't really have good guidance.

    Pros

    Easy work and not too stressful.

    Cons

    Management across the board was the worst I'd ever experienced. They act like they care about their employees but it is a joke. If you want to go back to the high school environment, get a job at Noble. Popularity and kissing up to the manager is the only way you will move up in the company.

    Horrible management at all levels. Poorly performing managers are just shuffled to new assignments.

    Clean house.
