    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.

    Pros

    I loved the versatility of my position. I actually was able to work on several projects and enjoyed the work I did.

    Cons

    I think Noble is growing faster than it expected. It appears they want new and young experience, which is not a bad thing but, I feel they forgot there should be a good balance between new and innovative ideas and seasoned professionals.

    There are no pros to working at Noble at this time. People are arrogant and near sighted. Not willing to listen to the actual working people.

    Everything is swept under the rug. Good Ole boy mentality is even more in effect than in earlier years.

    Advice to Management

    Do the company a favor and find now jobs.
