    I worked at Noble Energy full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Not any that I could see.

    Cons

    Very political environment. Left hand does not know what the right hand is doing and they don't care. They don't care if one department is over budget by millions. The employees seem to hate their jobs and do not even say Hi to people. There does not seem to be any "Team work" at all. People who have been there a long time have titles that are not earned and their position certainly is not respected. They need to do a management overhaul, especially in the Denver office. Paying a larger salary does not mean people will be happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice your leadership skills, if you actually have them. Plant some strong people in the Denver office and see what they are doing and how they are treating people. Noble office in Denver is giving O&G as BAD name in Colorado! For goodness sake, give a snow day when it is needed, no sense in putting people in danger when they can work at home just as efficiently.

    Pros

    You will wear a lot of hats and have a lot of responsibility.

    Cons

    Noble is very old school - they hesitate in promoting their own people.

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good People, Well Established, Strong (Financially) Company, Challenging Work with Chances for Additional Responsibilities.

    Cons

    Seemingly insurmountable caste system where promotion is attained through attrition rather than performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage and promote based on performance and not "years in the business".

    Pros

    Ethical company and management which demonstrates respect for its people and contractors, and for continued solid hard work, diligence and productivity.

    Cons

    Too many employees and supervisors goofing off most of the day and creating problems in business unit morale and workflow. Too much reporting in one area but not enough in other sections. Some supervisors don't know what they need to know to help with questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to crack down on employees and supervisors who are not putting in a full days' work - demoralizing and distracting to employees who are working, especially when the ones not working are in a supervisory position. Too much talking, personal internet usage, griping and egos wanting to be promoted without doing what they were hired to do now. Better screening or interviewing of candidates' experience and references is needed to be sure that new hires actually know what they say they know. Too many emplohyees leaving the office for golf outings or rig tours and leaving work undone.

    Former Employee - Business and Operations in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Business and Operations in Houston, TX

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

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good. Overall I liked the employees, job and company. Location has improved with the move to the old Compaq center on 249 and Louetta and out of the ghetto gunslinging area of Greenspoint.

    Cons

    Management does nothing to promote from within, develop career paths or encourage collaboration with departments. There is a lot of duplication of efforts. Great place for operations type jobs but not business or IT. IT is deservingly the butt of most jokes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix it. Take career paths seriously. Operations has already make it a successful company financially but they cant fix the internal problems. Find the gaps of management intelligence and fix them.

    Pros

    The benefit package is excellent, working environment is very good. This is an excellent company to work for, however there should be more adequate training, and job duties more explicitly explained.

    Cons

    The company is not as organized as it should be, a lot of the employees are not familiar with job duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more adequate on the job training, When hiring job descriptions should be more thoroughly explained.

    Good pay/benefits. Friendly environment. Passionate individuals. Can move around in the company. Great people. Safe practices. Interesting business to get involved in. All the people here seem to really care about each other and their jobs.

    Cons

    Traditional when it comes to stuff like working at home or setting your own hours. I honestly can't think of any other cons. My experience at this company this far has been amazing.
