    Great people, vision, and progressive. Able to move up or different positions with ease.

    Cons

    The spin-off was bad timing

    I worked at Noble Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of freedom to do what I needed to do to get the job done.

    Cons

    Management still does not understand fully the value of reliability engineering.

    Advice to Management

    The biggest struggle I always had was getting management to see that spending money on the front end would save a lot of money on the back end. The mentality is typically focused on what can be saved right now, without understanding the impact to costs later.

  3. "Not so great"

    I worked at Noble Corporation (More than a year)

    Pros

    Talk a good game and tries to do the right thing, unfortunately too many jackup mentalitys on the new rigs to move in the right direction.

    Cons

    Too many old school (hurry up and git er done) guys on these rigs, if you're not part of the Mississippi mafia your doomed to be excluded at this company before long. On the other end of the spectrum its the maritime school folks that shun anyone that did not attend maritime academy, anywhere in between and you should look elsewhere. Not family oriented either.

    Advice to Management

    move into the 21st century and stop treating people like 2 year olds. If im scheduled for school on my OFF time I should be able to purchase a hotel out of my pocket and stay where I want as long as I show up for class, not be confined like a prisoner to a warehouse enclosed in razor wire.
