    Pros

    Individual contributors are mostly great individuals who still believe in doing the right thing and pouring their hearts into their work. Lots of great individuals on the lowest levels.

    Cons

    Middle management will be the end of this company.. Good ole boy system still appears to be in place from the Vastar institution. No real employee development program. Terrible company to start a new career out of school.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to middle management. They're poisonous and creating major issues for the company

    Pros

    Nice building, location and has an onsite gym

    Cons

    Management bullies employees to divert the attention away from their lack of knowledge. Creates a hostile environment and rules by intimidation. The entire team is afraid of loosing their job on a daily basis. She is currently in drilling and has no business managing.

    Advice to Management

    Lawsuits

    Pros

    Co-workers are terrific, good pay.

    Cons

    No regard for employees. Stupid decisions. They would waste tons of money on one project, but then save a few cents by eliminating the flavored coffee creamers in the Denver office.

    Advice to Management

    Retire

    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.

    I worked at Noble Energy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Denver location is good -
    Good assets and diverse opportunities in the company

    Cons

    Houston location is in an isolated part of the city (from an oil and gas perspective)
    There was a time it was large enough, but acted like a small company - it has jumped the shark and is driven by processes, and not people.

    Advice to Management

    Where are you going? Let us know...

    Pros

    Gym, nice building, some good people there

    Cons

    Noble has gone through multiple layoffs, the same employees who made the company massive profits were booted with the slightest oil price decrease to make shareholders happy. It's ok while you're there, but be warned, your job will be in line for layoffs whenever things get tough.

    Advice to Management

    value your people more than your property and the company will succeed.
