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

    Pros

    Good pay/benefits. Good office environment - nice/likable coworkers - minimal politics. Growing company with a lot going on and company will find a way to utilize your talent. Many intelligent and dedicated employees operating under solid executive leadership. Would recommend without hesitation.

    Cons

    More competent employees end up working hard while less competent can often get a pass. Performance review system is subpar to non-existent. Result - fair amount of dead wood among rank and file employees. Something of a good old boy's club at upper levels of management that facilitates advancement (not necessarily gender specific) - but less prevalent than I've seen at other places.

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

    Pros

    Culture and the opportunity to learn. I never feel as if I cannot go on vacation and when I do, I know my manager will be there to support me. The communication I have with my manager is constant and so our lines of communication are always open. This is MOST important to me particularly because my manager does not sit here.

    It has also never been an issue to seek out training not offered by the company. This is important in order for me to expand my career and I couldn't be happier!

    Finally, "Energizing the World, Bettering People's Lives" is Noble's motto and they stand behind it!

    Cons

    Technology is some what of a challenge at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on communicating at all levels and Houston managers who do not visit often enough, visit more. Not an issue with my manager though!

    I worked at Noble Energy as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The employees were very nice. The management teams that I worked with were also very nice. They are a very strong Oracle Shop and try to stay up to date with the latest technology.

    Cons

    n/a. I will not say anything bad about the place as I would go back there if given an opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow a few work from home days. The employees are all great and should be able to telecommute whenever they have special situations going on. It takes some employees over a hour and a half to get into the office.

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

    Pros

    Ethical company and management which demonstrates respect for its people and contractors, and for continued solid hard work, diligence and productivity.

    Cons

    Too many employees and supervisors goofing off most of the day and creating problems in business unit morale and workflow. Too much reporting in one area but not enough in other sections. Some supervisors don't know what they need to know to help with questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to crack down on employees and supervisors who are not putting in a full days' work - demoralizing and distracting to employees who are working, especially when the ones not working are in a supervisory position. Too much talking, personal internet usage, griping and egos wanting to be promoted without doing what they were hired to do now. Better screening or interviewing of candidates' experience and references is needed to be sure that new hires actually know what they say they know. Too many emplohyees leaving the office for golf outings or rig tours and leaving work undone.

    Pros

    Good pay/benefits. Friendly environment. Passionate individuals. Can move around in the company. Great people. Safe practices. Interesting business to get involved in. All the people here seem to really care about each other and their jobs.

    Cons

    Traditional when it comes to stuff like working at home or setting your own hours. I honestly can't think of any other cons. My experience at this company this far has been amazing.
