    Pros

    They pay very well - at least the part they don't take back when they dump you.

    Cons

    Third world management skills trying to compete in a first world game. Locker room mentality and 7th grade politics will take this company to it's knees. Grandma will soon learn that these yahoos are not the place to park her hard earned retirement money and down the house of cards shall come.

    Advice to Management

    Evolve, grow up, this is not a popularity contest. Oh yeah, I think the day of kings killing their strongest sons have passed.....oh say, a few hundred years ago. But go ahead and keep the flow of 'I-just-shaved-for-the-first-time' staff coming in the door....they won't even notice your monumental incompetence.

    Pros

    - Diverse assets with unbounded opportunities.
    - Overall great talented co-workers

    Cons

    - Good Ole boys club mentality, especially in the drilling department
    - Out of touch Executives that turn the cheek when workers point out obvious abuse of management.
    - Heavily relied on contractors vs. employees.

    Advice to Management

    - Restructure the entire organization.
    - Identify poor managers and replace them immediately.
    - Listen to the needs of your young engineers, they are the future NOT the contractors.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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!

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good. Atmosphere is generally positive. Lots of nice people to work with.

    Cons

    As with any company there are bad managers as well as good ones, so in some departments the atmosphere is not so good.
    In my experience it seems that who you know is more important than doing a good job. That is what worries me about the pending "reduction in force."

    Advice to Management

    When deciding who to let go, maybe you should consider who actually gets the job done.

    Pros

    working with good people who want to do a good job and are willing to help each other. being a pumper is a good job and nice to work outside.

    Cons

    incompetent management from the very top to the bottom. they have completely ruined the work atmosphere. they have taken our retirement and retirement insurance insurance away and put the company in a financial mess but spend money on tv commercials and newspaper adds to fool the public into thinking it is a upstanding company. employees are forced to volunteer to work at the food bank by supervisors and all field employees are required to work on every holiday including christmas and thanksgiving. the company has created a huge divide between office and field employees.

    Advice to Management

    quit, resign, you have morally and financially ruined a great company. close your mouths and open your ears and listen to the great people of this company before it is to late.
