    Pros

    The time off is the key for me. I work a 14 day on and have 14 days off a month. This gives me plenty of time to do the things I want and to plan things in the future. I also get to spend quality time with my family.
    The benefits are great. I have not had one problem with my insurance and the 401K plan is really wonderful. You can put 1% to 50% of your check in up to the amount the IRS allows every year, you are vested as soon as you start and do not have to wait 5 years, and for the first 5 years the company matches you 70 cents on the dollar up to 6%, after that dollar for dollar up to 6%.

    Cons

    We are constantly going to schools to renew licenses or learning up on new programs that have been put into place. The only time we have to do this is on our off time which takes time away from your family.

    Advice to Management

    On the retention bonuses, I believe ALL supervisors and the skilled position personnel should receive one. The way I see it, all your skilled positions had to do some kind of formal training to get in the position they are in today so they should be compensated.

    I have been working at Noble Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Room for growth, pay, hours, perks. I love this company, I have been here for a few months an I'm already climbing the ladder. Unlike most companies where you never see VPs or the CEO you actually have the opportunity to meet and speak to all of the above if you work in corporate. Noble Drilling recognizes hard work, most of the people who complain expect to be spoon fed.

    Cons

    Only typing cons because glass door made me.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. It's amazing how y'all run a multi-billion dollar company and are some of the nicest people you will ever meet.

    I have been working at Noble Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High pay compared to other engineering jobs.
    Company strength shows promise for growth as a company
    Schedule is 3 weeks on 3 weeks off or 4/4
    12 hr days for 1 week is 40hrs regular and 44 over time
    Live anywhere in the U.S. They pay travel cost (limited maximum)
    High priority set on training. Some of the training schools can be thousands of dollars.
    No contract (job depending)
    Can have significant travel around the world. More hours is more pay so this might be a positive to some.

    Cons

    I can not think of significant cons worthy of inputting that are representative of the entire company.

    Advice to Management

    I love my job. Weather the storm of low oil prices and keep on going!

    Pros

    There is great work-life balance at Noble. You get half-day Fridays and overall the atmosphere is enjoyable.

    Cons

    General corporate politics that exist at too many organizations including finger pointing and lack of accountability between departments. Overall, it was a good place to work.

    Pros

    Good company, good people. Room for advancement and plenty of time off.

    Cons

    As it is a public company, decisions are more based on appeasing shareholders than employees, but this is expected.
