    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.

    I have been working at Noble Energy full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, great projects, and a sense that the company really cares about H&S, communities, and the environment. I've never worked at a place with such good community outreach.

    Cons

    The reporting structure has a bit of a 'silo' structure, that can sometimes effect how information is communicated. Generally, the teams work well together, but sometimes there is a lag in communication.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more cross-functional teamwork from group to group and office to office to improve communication. Additional learning sessions demonstrating what other business units are doing would also be helpful.

    Nice work life balance. Plenty of work to keep busy. Great benefits and a lot of community outreach opportunities.

    Sr. management is very disconnected to the mid level manager and below. Slow to make decisions.

    Get more engaged...soon before the market picks up and people who don't feel appreciated jump ship.

    Employee oriented company with a friendly work environment. Managers are easy to work with and are always willing to help when needed. The company has excellent amenities and offers competitive benefits.
