    Pros

    This company was first class in every respect from the standpoint of my very interview up until the time I was advised, in a professional upstanding matter, that I would not be offered a renewal contract due to the decreasing price of oil. I am very grateful to have worked for this company.

    Cons

    The only downside to this company simply put, and that's nothing to do with peers or management, was that the bottom fell-out in the oil & gas industry with respects to the price-per-barrel of oil.

    Advice to Management

    All layers of management and respective interface department personnel were outstanding, so I have no instances of complaint. Maybe...and that's only a maybe is that management could subsidize the cafeteria food prices a little. Oh well...you can't have all of the pie...lol.

    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.

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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
