    I worked at Noble Group Limited full-time

    Pros

    Good opportunity to get in on 'Ground Level'; if equity infusion shows up.

    Cons

    Distressed at this time with unknown future.
    A commodity client flow based company that is now trying to look like a proprietary shop just to survive.

    Advice to Management

    Work to get the "Iceberg" reporters of the financial world off Noble's back. If Noble is going to be a proprietary trading shop, fill it with qualified personnel.

    I have been working at Noble Group Limited full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not sure about the front office/middle office. But in Finance, Treasury, Settlement and IT department, people are supper nice, kind, supportive and hard-working. Very comfortable, healthy, and happy working environment. It is not that you do not need to work hard or over time. It is just that people here would like to make everyone's life easier by doing their job well.

    The compensation is pretty competitive in this area, too.

    Good insurance and great 401k plan.

    Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Slow communication in the management level.

    The headquarter is in not in US. It usually takes a while to get confirmation or approvals from management or Board.

    Sometimes, there is only one meeting per month for specific things. if these things did not get done in the meeting, they are not going to be taken care until next month.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to have more meetings to communicate.
