    Pros

    Very good benefits and job stability.

    Cons

    Noble in many occasions instead of developing and promoting its employees instead hires from other energy companies. This creates lowers morale, and increases employee turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the number of management layers, invest on and empower your best employees.

    Pros

    - Denver office relaxed atmosphere, people seem genuine and happy to help
    - half day Fridays
    - good benefits

    Cons

    - corporate structure suffocates those trying to work up ranks (no promotions in last 3 years)
    - 4 layoffs in 3 years have caused stress and anxiety in workplace
    - Denver office restructuring to Greeley and Houston leaves employees wondering if Denver office will close soon

    Advice to Management

    - don't ignore your employees in the trenches - they deserve promotions, raises, and opportunities for advancement
    - consider being more transparent in the future regarding restructuring
    - upper management should listen more to lower management and employees to hear what challenges are really being experienced day to day

    Pros

    Interesting work. Many good family people that work hard. Nice building with gym and cafeteria. Good parking that is free. Half day Friday. Safety is very high.

    Cons

    Management is trying but they are grumpy. They dont leave 10. Company culture and ethics are lower now. Benefits are being taking away.

    Advice to Management

    Walk on the other floors where the people do the work. Dont look so sad and mean. Ethical acts are more important than talking about it. The lower benefits are hurting the moral.

    Pros

    Not a horrible place to work. If you don't like your boss don't worry there will be a reorg shortly and it will change.

    Cons

    A company of managers where little actual work seems to get done. Too much time and effort wasted on pie in the sky efforts when basic systems are lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Look at one of the many employee surveys done and listen to what people are telling you.
