    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.

    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.

    I worked at Noble Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Has been forced to become more competitive with other companies on salaries and benefits.
    Good flex time schedule. Provide workout facilities and good 401.

    Cons

    You become more expendable after many years of success due to money.
    American citizens were cut while contract foreigners on sponsored visas were retained.
    Huge disconnect between upper management and regular employees.
    Company now driven mostly by profits instead of helping employees or local areas.
    Most employees are unaware of what upper management is doing - very secretive.

    Advice to Management

    Decide whether you want to be your own company and different from the others or just another poorly run oil and gas company that suffered the consequences of their own poor management.
    Stop overextending yourselves and over hiring when the market turns up at the expense of longtime employees. Consider your own country first instead of the mighty dollar.
