    I have been working at Noble Corporation full-time

    I have been working at Noble Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Company is super laid back, has great benefits (6% match 401k, stock plan). Work 1/2 day on Fridays.

    Cons

    Where to start? Upper management has unrealistic expectations and has trouble making viable decisions on where the company is going. Most things are hush/ hush between departments with little to no communication. Performance reviews are a joke and have never been a helpful avenue even if the individual outperformed at their job. Company has serious expectations on being in the door on time and out the door on time for there are many traffic cops. Company is ran by HR...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, trust them and their decisions and give them some room to breathe. Times are changing in the business world and it is either adopt the new flow or get out.

    Pros

    Schedule, if you like working from home for three weeks periods. Training is good and they pay for your food while out on the rig.

    Cons

    Do not take care of their employees as well as they should. Pay is below industry standards. Travel pay is horrible.

    Best Drilling Contractor in the World. They don't pay the most, but they take care of each other. The industry is tough right now, but Noble will come out on top.

    A little more clear communication regarding good/bad news would be nice.

    Pros

    For someone willing to work hard who has little experience, this company will provide you with lots of knowledge and experience to grow.

    Cons

    Immature in their policies (HR, code of ethics, etc.). Same pay rate to the penny for over 2 years, with several promotions that were unrecognized.

    Advice to Management

    Employee appreciation, annual raises, and employee morale promote productivity and tenure and a good reputation within the industry.

    Old company has some oppotunities and pay os generally good.

    it would be a waste of time, they wouldn't listen.
