    The managers are always in meetings when the the employees need them. Need more boots on the ground, not in a meeting.

    Less meetings, more work.

    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.

    I have been working at Noble Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Noble Energy is a great company to work for, no doubt.
    the company approach is big on team work and collaboration.

    Cons

    The company went through many changes in the past five years.
    That could, for some people, cause job security anxiety.

    Advice to Management

    Management could for the most part do better in showing better or more clear path forward for individual growth within the company

    Pros

    Very good benefits package and working conditions for expatriate staff working in subsidiary companies around the world

    Cons

    Despite the windfall, local staff in subsidiaries are treated like morons and slaves. Work related training is withheld from them, one or two local staff with connections to the powers that be are promoted and touted as examples in spite of their ineffectiveness for the position and the rest are left to rot.

    Advice to Management

    Put into practice the contents of your policies
