I worked at Noble Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Senior management is very ethical.
There is good software, technology, training available and a desire for excellence by upper management
There are some very good people.

Cons

With the rapid growth from a relatively small independent thanks to some large discoveries, the company is focused on process, succession planning and everything but actual sound work, creativity and individual contribution. Working there became an extremely frustrating experience of endless meetings with incompetent middle managers who knew how to speak the lingo but couldn't recognize let alone initiate something that would lead to real value

Advice to Management

For Senior Management:
Come down from your ivory tower.
Remember what led to the success of the company and focus on those aspects of business
 Stop "drinking the KoolAid" all of the management consultants are pawning off on you.

    Pros

    Immediate supervisors support a work home life. There is no pressure from immediate supervisors to put your work before your family.

    Cons

    They do not give goals of career advancement. If employees show interest in advancing their careers and pursue their interest many times they are ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Provide clear career advancement options for each job title and position. Each employee needs to feel they are appreciated and valued by the immediate supervisors up to the Vice Presidents.

    I worked at Noble Energy full-time

    Pros

    Money, nice facilities, professional atmosphere

    Cons

    Huge contract force does all the work. Employees who do the work and have the knowledge are passed over for illogical reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture where the work is done by real employees (not just contractors). And reward the employee's with growth and promotions because of the quality and effort put into the work. Avoid promoting people to key positions that don't have the experience or skills relative to their organization.
