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

    Pros

    Decent health benefits. Nice facilities. Great vacation benefits.

    Cons

    Industry lagging pay. Too much emphasis on bonuses that don’t always get paid. Uninspiring leadership. High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    I’m not sure how you stop the exodus. You’ll have to come up with pay or I don’t see this being anything more than a bridge job for most.

    I have been working at Noble Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of collaboration. Some really great people work at Noble but I’ve never been a part of such a poorly led company. Too much untapped talent and the chosen few represent the masses.

    Cons

    Lots of collaboration. Too many meetings and too much deliberating. We don’t always promote at the right time. Too many leaders with not enough or the right kind of experience to be there.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck. You’ve dug a big hole for a lot of years. Time to undo the past and clean house with the right people in the right positions finally. Start with HR and go from there!

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

    Pros

    They are still small enough that someone could potentially buy them out and clean house

    Cons

    Out of touch executives allow mid-level management to rule through intimidation and comedy of errors

    Advice to Management

    Try to not scare off every single qualified person. Operating with an army of unaccountable contractors (who also circulate through a revolving door) is not a plan. It is reactive and demonstrates there is no plan. Also, get rid of the bullys that dominate management. Keeping employees in a constant state of fear and bewilderment is just wrong.
