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

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Great Benefits. Love the 9/4, half Friday work structure. Lots of leave time for various situations. On-site gym (free), On-site cafe. Love the location away from downtown, the energy corridor and the Galleria. Easy drive to work. Everyone I have interacted with have been great people.

    Cons

    I wasn't here with the "Dave Stover" leadership change over, so I can compare past Noble with current Noble, but I can compare to all the other companies I have worked for. When I first came in I was very optimistic about Noble. However, now I am in limbo and don't know what to think. Everyone preaches "promote within", develop our young, opportunities for our engineers. However, I have not seen any support of this. When opportunities open up, hiring managers rather hire people from the outside than promote and develop engineers from within. That's a bad sign. They say one thing and do another. What other characteristics will I see from this company? Only time will tell...

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be an employee development program. There's no program in place for those employees who want to increase their skill level, change their career path, or move up within the company. Employees can only do so much on their own to develop their career path internally before they begin having to go outside for their own growth. Management needs to push HR and hiring managers to develop employees and support employee career goals.

    Pros

    Great immediate leadership, great field guys. With the safety first mindset you are allowed to step back, assess and learn before immediately rushing in to fix a problem.

    Cons

    Incredible amount of paperwork required to complete some simple "hazardous" tasks. Getting changes made to equipment sometimes takes years to go through all the approval chains.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the safety mindset, however do not overuse the word as it will eventually lose meaning. When everything is a priority, nothing is a priority.

    I worked at Noble Energy full-time

    Pros

    Smaller company allowed development of a variety of skills. Exciting work, good activity, good environment. There was a clear impact that your work had on the project.

    Cons

    Location of office at the time was in Greenspoint, which was dangerous. There was a murder at the gas station outside my window in the middle of the day while I was employed at Noble.

    Advice to Management

    It's been several years since I worked there and a lot has changed in the industry, so any advice I have would be very out of date. I guess it is good that the office moved away from Greenspoint.

    Pros

    The work/life balance is top notch. The pay seems to be higher than other area competitors.

    Cons

    The market conditions seem to have Noble in a complete limbo. You don't really know how to feel day to day, because some days you're just not sure how long your job will be there. Benefits are mediocre. There's definitely a good bit of cronyism, but I think that is pretty typical for the industry. Management often rolls out surveys regarding feelings on performance, but doesn't seem to react to the results. Performance reviews are a joke as no one seems to review those, either.

    Advice to Management

    Please come with a clear message on your plans moving forward. The constant ups and downs do not make people comfortable in their jobs. Listen to your employees! There are a lot of good ones here.
