Great place to retire

Pros

Pay and Benefits are the big Pros here. I really don't see people excited about work or with established career paths. Operations is the backbone of the company and runs great. Their success is only hindered by the poor support and functionality of the rest of the company. If you are looking for a position to ride out your last years in the work force this is the place for you.

Cons

The departments that support Operations need help. Communication in departments between management and employees is poor. Cross departmental communication is no existent. If you enjoy work and making things happen, like watching your work contribute to company success you will be frustrated here. It will take months for great ideas to be appoved and longer to initiate. The company culture is; "done is good" but is doens't have to be "done good".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior leaders are truely impressive people however they need to evaluate how their managers perform. Many people have been promoted to their level of imcompetence and are killing the motiviation of employees that want real career paths and to contribute to success. Many employees with great potential are working for people who should be reporting to them. Grasp the potential of information technology and integrate solutions. Establish best practices and use them. Being best is class is more than talking about it.

    "Over promise...Under deliver"

    Pros

    A diverse company with a strong balance sheet with great upper level management. Probably will allow a flex schedule and salaries are competitive.

    Cons

    As long as you don't ask for anything, you'll be fine. Middle management suffers from a paranoia of individual growth. Don't get me started on empty promises...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Best in Class" means more than keeping major projects on budget and on schedule, stay competitive with peers on PTO and growth opportunities...Or you'll keep losing your best people to the big dogs.

    Noble Energy is okay to work for but could improve.

    Pros

    They are generous with vacation policy and they have a pension plan. The office is set up nice and they have recently remodeled floors and we have new furniture. There is plenty of room. They offer good benefits and our portion of the medical premiums is very low. I think that they care about their employees. Chuck Davidson is very nice and comes to town to communicate with the employees about how the company is doing.

    Cons

    Management is not very good. My manager does not communicate with the entire group - only a few. Some of the management is not held accountable for things they do. They need to improve on this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more communication. Hold members of management more accountable.
