    I have been working at Noble Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    there's a gym and a cafeteria.

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen. Machines break and no one fixes them. Management routinely asks you to do things that are above your pay grade - ie engineering when you are not an engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Actually follow through with promises, and listen to your employees. I've been told now 6 times that I'm going to move into a different dept, and still I'm doing the same exact thing.

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

    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.
