    I have been working at Noble Group Limited

    Pros

    1) Great culture, entrepreneurial, friendly, generally humble and team-oriented employees, no one believes they are superior or smarter than their peers despite some being extremely successful. 2) Industry is extremely meritocratic, so after proving yourself either Noble is forced to give you your due responsibility and pay, or another company will. 3) Very international office and good diversity, fun office. 4)...

    Cons

    1) Recently getting bogged down in protocol, it's hurting how quickly business gets executed. 2) Turning more into a bank, lots of paper pushers and silly rules like stricter office dress code which are not relevant to the fundamental business. 3) Goes through periods of cost cutting, where even small necessary expenses are scrutinized and sometimes eliminated. Management needs to sweat the smaller things less so they...

    Advice to Management

    Keep red-tape down (daily/monthly compliance and risk procedures/conference calls) and the maintain agility, keep teams as lean as possible. Still too many unnecessary hires and some roles that need to be eliminated. The industry is highly scalable, just a few people can run and manage a large and profitable business. Keeping focusing on good risk management, it is beginning to pay off well. Promote aggressively from...

    I worked at Noble Group Limited full-time

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Colleagues are nice and helpful, it's a nice family environment.

    Cons

    Not much advancement in career, its a flat structure so it's not easy to move up. There are too many individual IT systems to learn.

    I have been working at Noble Group Limited full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits that seem to be getting cut every year. The staff are generally nice, but management has no loyalty to long time employees. Convenient office location. Free bagels on Friday.

    Cons

    Horrible morale, constant firings with little severance, no communication from management, unless lies count. There is no sense of loyalty at any level.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a clearer picture of where the company is going rather than the lies that are propogated at Town Hall meetings.

    I have been working at Noble Group Limited

    Pros

    An added bullet point on cv, that said I wish I could leave it off.

    Cons

    Horrible/useless managers (my manager would always remind everyone that he was great bc he was in "management"). Zero communication between group Too much division of labour, this leads to lousy work bc no one ever sees the end result of what theyre doing. No direction from senior management. Just he was a heavy hitter at X bank before, so they're super important Yes it's a trading floor, so expect a locker room...

    Advice to Management

    Quit believing the company is great, there is some serious need for housekeeping. Streamline operations, no need for all the divisions of labour.

    I worked at Noble Group Limited full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You will work amongst the most hard working and nicest people you would ever meet and work with. Senior Management are open and friendly. Full health benefits for you and your entire family!

    Cons

    Work-life balance is hard at times. You will sometimes have after hour work, weekend work and work on holidays. Just make sure the work you are doing is well documented so that you can get paid for your overtime.

    Advice to Management

    You are able to apply for another internal position once you've been in your current role for a full year.

    I have been working at Noble Group Limited full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Smart colleagues/peers - Flat organization, you are just as likely to work with a managing director than a brand new analyst - Friendly group, everyone is open to helping others - Great pay (and bonus) and benefits (from what I understand, unlimited tuition reimbursement)

    Cons

    - Nothing much really, maybe promote more interaction between groups/products but the nature of the business makes it hard

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job, keep it up.
