    Pros

    On-site gym, cafeteria and benefits

    Cons

    Not open to listening to new processes or industry perspectives for best practices in many functions. Make sure to take promote same people regardless of capability/experience. No diversity in leadership or in thought.

    I worked at Noble Energy full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Noble offers good health and wellness benefits, PTO, flexible schedule, and an onsite gym that employees can use for free.

    Cons

    There is a toxic work culture. There is far too much favoritism and politics at Noble. HR cannot be trusted to act in the best interest of the employees. All comments on management are relayed verbatim to the managers and those managers retaliate. Also, incredible employees and managers were just laid off in the Finance and IT departments. Noble is doing layoffs during an up time in the economy and industry.

    Advice to Management

    Managers - Listen to your employees. Turnover happens for a reason. Think about what you can do to be a better manager and foster growth and excitement within your department. Don’t play favorites. That creates poor morale. HR - Listen to the employees. Act in their best interest. Don’t set them up for retaliation by their manager. Recognize that retaliations are happening and do something about it. Stand behind... the employees and realize that they are coming to you because they feel they can not talk to their manager and they are trusting you to have their backs and help them.

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

    Pros

    Flex time, pay, location, benefits, opportunity

    Cons

    Instead of listening to employee concerns, their solution is to give a raise, which is nice. But then you spend a lot of time working on projects or in ways that are not efficient or enjoyable.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee satisfaction or lack thereof instead of throwing money at the issue.
