    I have been working at Noble Energy as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work hours are good, standard Friday's are a half day so the rest of the week is a little long. Great activity encouragement to engage in healthy activities and give back to the community. Room to contribute to the team.

    Cons

    No family leave time. Need more female managers, kind of an old boy's club. Competent female manger passed over and given 4 new male bosses while she does all the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider reviewing existing employees for management

    Pros

    Great company, dynamic environment, fast moving development, many opportunities

    Cons

    Fast development sometimes also means people not capable of performing job get promoted, accomplishing things fast doesn't always mean doing them right, lots of "who you know" politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is doing a fantastic job in this dynamic environment.

    I worked at Noble Energy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong asset base and diversified portfolio

    Cons

    Management unwilling to bring in outside expertise. All good ideas were cultivated here.They are unable to assimilate and learn from expertise that is not home grown. Classic 'kill the strongest son' syndrome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get outside help before it is too late. You are running a company 10 times bigger than the management talent you have to do so.

    Pros

    Noble has pretty generous salary and bonus packages, but the standards for the bonuses are pretty high. They are given at individual amounts, but on the achievement of a group. If the group misses the objectives by even a cent the bonuses are not given that year. They are annual. Raises are also only given to keep up with inflation. And they are constantly giving "deprotions" - lots more work deserving of a raise and new job title, but you get the work and no more money and no new title.

    Cons

    They will work you to death with no acknowledgement or praise or pay. Corporate culture is cutthroat and dishonest. They screw their partners, their suppliers and their employees. Upper management keeps morale low at all times. No employee could ever keep up with all the work thrown at them. Leading positions at the company are given out by upper management to people they have worked with in other companies (BP). Very little opportunity internally, because all of your bosses will be from BP. There is corporate tuition assistance, but they will pick what you may study, and there will be no time to do so anyway because you will have no free time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up and realize that your employees are people first and not just producing machines. Promote from within. Honor your bonuses. Deal with others honestly and with transparency
