    I worked at Noble Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful building, safe location, competitive pay and benefits, 401k with a 6% match plus additional contributions made based on your age, gym on site, great vacation package, half day Fridays.

    Cons

    Depending on where you work, advancement opportunities may not be there. There was a huge shift when Dave Stover filling Chuch Davisons shoes. The timing wasn't in Dave's favor as it was in tandem with the oil price drop. It's started to feel like a company that is focused on its shareholders at the expense of its employees. There's a lot of frustration with lack of information trickling down.

    Advice to Management

    Remember who you were because Noble was and still can be a highly respected company. Energize the world and bettering people's lives included those employees who have stuck it out with you for many years.

    Pros

    Very nice people work there. I really like 90%+ of my coworkers.

    Cons

    Management seems to lack direction; they allow people to stay in positions long after they have proven inability.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look about how you make decisions. Also look at who you promote and why you promote them.

    I worked at Noble Energy (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Intelligent, friendly people to work with
    Team environment is very supportive
    Very high tech

    Cons

    Management has had a difficult time adjusting to lower oil prices and laid off many people in exploration. After all of the layoffs (3 in total). the company is still very top heavy with management.

    Pros

    My experience here has been ok. I've been here for nearly 5 years and I'm in no rush to leave. The only thing that would probably pull me away would be better pay and more flexibility hours wise. That being said, I also think im fortunate enough to work with a good group of people.

    As far as pros, the corporate office offers a nice gym with classes, wellness activities, etc., there's a decent cafeteria, and the building is nice. Pay seems fair but raises have been lacking, likely because of the current industry environment.

    Cons

    Pay could be better. Id like to see more flexibility with regard to hours in the office. Technology makes being connected very easy without being anchored to a desk. There are some processes here that need attention. Too many workarounds and bandaids.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace technology and the changing workforce. Implement processes that work for everyone and not just certain people. Pay should equal work and skill set.

    Pros

    1/2 day Friday working schedules, located in Denver, good employees and colleagues, good managers

    Cons

    tough keeping a job in town in the the O&G Industry these days, thankful for Noble's Denver office, there are still quite a few good ole boy antics that keep people employed and promoted in this company

    Advice to Management

    Seek quality employees and re-assess some of the people who have been with the company for years, yet do not develop, improve or add value.

    Pros

    I loved the versatility of my position. I actually was able to work on several projects and enjoyed the work I did.

    Cons

    I think Noble is growing faster than it expected. It appears they want new and young experience, which is not a bad thing but, I feel they forgot there should be a good balance between new and innovative ideas and seasoned professionals.
