    The external market oil and gas environment is impacting Noble. It's been a tough few years.

    Keep motivating and communicating with the workforce during these tough times.

    I worked at Noble Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and decent compensation. Company seems vested in its employees from this standpoint. Some opportunity for tuition reimbursement, but only enough to pay for a portion of costs at a community college at best.

    Cons

    Incompetent management from the top down. The company lacks a sense of leadership needed to drive its revenue and to maximum top-line growth.

    Supervisors are entitled and focus on promoting their friends rather than based on merit. Although the compensation was decent, there is very little room to move up in this company.

    Pros

    Great benefits and 401k match. 4 hour Fridays were great.

    Cons

    The Division Order dept is poorly managed. The Denver supervisors couldn't do the job of the people underneath them. DO supervisors pawn everything off on the people under them and just attend worthless meetings. Even after 2 layoffs, so many people quit the DO dept that they recently had to hire another DO analyst. DO supervisors pick favorites and only they have possibility of advancing upwards.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of incompetent supervisors and promote from within.

    I worked at Noble Energy (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salaries in line with industry. Nice building and surroundings.

    Cons

    Upper management will lie to your face. Mid-management plays the ole boys club game - golf, fantasy football, dinners with upper management - but won't show up for things like company sponsored charitable events, or take part in the team building events needed to familiarize staff with other departments (unless it is simply to get the alcohol).

    Advice to Management

    Clean your own house!

    Pros

    Management and board out to ine their pockets and not to run a good comoany

    Cons

    Care nothing for properties or employees. Care nothing for stockholders. Layoffs are tool to increase profits. Only those who suck up get promotions and keep jobs. Very little professionalism in management. Bad HR people. Worst supervisors and managers of any company around.

    Advice to Management

    Resign and take the Bistd with you. You are seemingly incapable of make big any profit except for yourself.
