    Pros

    Strong company identity and culture

    Cons

    Not the most ethical management

    Advice to Management

    Hire people to do a job, don't tell them how to do it when you are three steps removed from it and stop reading CIO magazine. People have come to Noble for its aura of risk taking and integrity, many only to find simple corruption - the mis-allocation of company resources for personal gain.
    Stop being a vendor rep....start with un-biased due-diligence. Make yourselves accountable for all the missteps and waste you have led your team into. Hire people from within, eg stop hiring more vendor salesmen. Value experience over the trend. Again, talk to your people and stop reading CIO magazine except to challenge how they work.
    Provide raises that keep your employees up with basic inflation! Instead of bonuses.....make a commitment to your human capital.

    I have been working at Noble Energy full-time

    Pros

    Multiple Opportunities to learn and contribute if you are willing to get out of your comfort zone. Great Benefits and vacation time.

    Cons

    With the recent large growth, processes and experienced employees are behind the "curve". There is a lack of accountability and communication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    It feels at times like Noble Energy is a headless body moving around. Everyone is working and doing what they feel is needed without a lack of understanding of how their role impacts internal customers upstream and downstream of their individual role.

    I worked at Noble Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    When I was at Noble it was a very friendly family like atmosphere. A lot of that was due to them hiring people from all types of backgrounds. The pay was a little above market and the benefits were top notch.

    Work was challenging but not overly pressurizing. Room for advancement was definitely available if you were a solid performer. The did do some layoffs shortly after I left due to the downturn but in my opinion they got rid of a lot of dead weight that wasn't worth much.

    Cons

    Because they hire from all types of backgrounds they tend to not have the best of the brightest employees so what you get is a few very high level high potential employees and a lot of people from non-oil and gas backgrounds that are a constant pull on the organization but maybe that adds to family environment because it reduces pressure on the high performers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture but try to retain your valuable employees and make sure you know the difference. Promoting based on time with the organization isn't good for the company and it creates animosity among the other employees who know the person is not qualified.

    I have been working at Noble Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people with many still driving towards the prior CEO’s vision of Energizing the World, Bettering People’s Lives. Benefits and pay are above average. Insurance is average for the industry.

    Cons

    Would echo the comments on the infusion of the BP personnel and business philosophy. Every department seems to have at least a dozen layers with very little movement and just the addition of more layers. Single greatest weakness of this company is that there is little strategic intent around personnel development and career progression.

    Advice to Management

    As Chuck would say, “continue to fight against being just another big company”. And we need to get smarter about developing our talent or we will lose them.
