    I can't think of any.

    I worked at Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My co-workers and the feeling we were working to help researchers, farmers, ranchers and the community.

    Cons

    Management that looks at their workforce as a risk that must be managed instead of an asset. HR leadership has forgotten they are there to assist the employees rather than to punish. Employees either are waiting to retire or have resumes out. Their stature in the industry has been compromised beyond compare. The community (as a whole) looks down on this place with either pity at what it has morphed into or utter distain. Required (perhaps compensated is a better word) community service by the employees is touted in the newspaper in order to bolster the company's fading local image. Morale is at an all-time low. Those that can leave/retire are doing so, resulting in a significant loss of talent.

    Advice to Management

    Channel Lloyd Noble and follow his vision for this foundation. Otherwise, turn off the lights and let all of us remember how this once great foundation led the way. The trustees are evidently clueless about the legacy of Lloyd Noble. The current president is feckless, hired only to cut vital programs and put the foundation on a path of "feel-good" initiatives rather than practical science. All is not lost - yet. It is sad to see what NF has been allowed to become.

  3. "Great Job!!!"

    I worked at Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Loved working for a private non-profit company while I got to persue my dreams.

    Cons

    One of the only con's to the job was that Oklahoma can get so hot in the summer months.
