    Pros

    Inclusion environment. Very Respectful . Awesome training. Excellent access Technological tools Great communication environment, I had awesome bosses. Free gym in main headquarter. Good Benefits: good healthcare coverage, 401k 6% match. Flexible vacation and personal time. Great work/life balance. Competitive Salary (not as high as the other operator companies, usually 10-20k per year less). Yearly Performance bonus.

    Cons

    Entry level positions are not eligible for stock options, only experienced hires. Yearly salary increase is low 3-4% (compared to other oil and gas operator companies). Also performance bonuses. If you want to move-up is hard, they prefer to hire experienced people for managerial positions, people that when they are hired they didn't have that managerial experience and not training their own people to advance to those positions in they career. They did a lot of lay-offs in 2015 and 2016. It is uncertain if they will have more but probable. Many people that wasn't lay off decided to go somewhere else. Company stability is unknown, a lot of debt, even when oil price was above $100/barrel. Company invests in risky international operation places, typically in countries with boundary disputes and conflict governments, which add geo-political risk to their assets. Noble have spent a lot of money in frontier areas without success. Areas previously known as unsuccessful from other companies operations

    Pros

    Company is usually profitable, compensation and benefits are competitive with other E&P companies and office accommodations are very good as professional employees generally have offices instead of cubicles. Communications from senior management are consistent and you feel like you are part of a well-run organization with a solid plan and focus.

    Cons

    Don't feel that credit was given for most significant contributions in performance reviews. There was no career development plan for employees where you could spend time rotating through other departments or discussions on how you could target higher level positions if performance was strong. Didn't feel that much of the work product was adding value or presented to operations in such a way that it was adding value to how the company was operating. Work/life balance was implicitly not recognized as employees were expected to be working at home when not at the office. Many employees would regularly forego awarded vacation time to gain favor of management. Employees with no families or personal hobbies were preferred as they would work more hours, and activity was recognized as superior to what was actually being accomplished or what value was being created.

    DO NOT WORK IN THE DIVISION ORDER DEPARTMENT!

    Pros

    Overall, the company pays competitively and offers excellent benefits. Colleagues are generally friendly and willing to help one another. Flexible hours lend to a decent work/life balance.

    Cons

    Where to begin? Management is horrendous. Supervisors are so far removed from day-to-day work that they have no idea what the job actually consists of. In addition, they are unwilling to recognize this distance and do not listen to recommendations from employees who actually understand the process. It is unclear what constitutes a promotion outside of shameless sucking up to supervisors. Management plays favorites and ignores the people who choose to focus on working hard rather than "playing the game". The one area where management has succeeded is sucking all of the fun out of being at work. People are miserable here.
