Topics regarding layoffs at Noble Energy Inc.

GoM is back up for sale.

This was told to people in Houston. Seems for real this time. They will sell to the highest bidder regardless of price this time.

Oil and gas is cr@p

Oil and gas is for su@kers. Get out or continue to take it in the backside. Everyone has it, everyone pumps it, supply high, demand low. Get it? Probably not. At least you will have something to blame for your lack of motivation.

Noble is definitely not Best in Class

Company has gone in the crapper. Never thought it would be the place that you're better off long term to be under employed and under paid. All functions appear mismanage but Finance as much as any other if not more so. It's incredible How much... read more

Noble Hiring Tons

Noble's employment site is chock full of opportunities. Doesn't seem like they will be laying off this year. I guess... unless you are overpaid and then you will be dumped and replaced with a s---er for lower wages.

What an incredibly awful company to work for

I can't wait to leave this company. I (like everyone I know at Noble) am waiting to see if the executive ivory tower will grace us with a 2017 bonus before I move on to a better job. Odds are they'll screw us again and keep bonuses just to... read more

Confirming the worst

I can't say who I am or how I know, but I know that serious layoffs are coming for real in October. Certain investors and suitors have made it clear to the board that they expect change now because they are sick of the nickel and diming cost-cutting... read more

Targeted advertising

Why do the ads I see on this site show pictures of Joel Osteen looking like Joan Crawford? Does he draw on his eyebrows and pad his shoulders? Click on the ads you hate. Make them pay for wasting your time and underestimating your intelligence and... read more

Thank You Noble

Thank you for selling the Marcellus and laying me off. Life is so much better outside. People out here enjoy their jobs, management is caring and talented, and i'm making more money as well. For those left behind if you want to energize the world and... read more

Cultural and Leadership Chaos

I've never seen an organization more focused on looking good instead of doing the right thing and caring for their people. Profits over people has been the downfall of this organization. Lies coupled with more lies continue to plague this company... read more

Greed is Greed

Greed is greed and what the company is experiencing is the same type mess we have going on with the government. Too management doesn't care who is hurt so long as their pocketbooks expand. Fat lot of good that will do them in hell.

Re-locations instead of layoffs

Noble is not recruiting employees to move to Houston. Instead of doing additional layoffs they said they would be moving departments from Denver to Houston. They must be in some sort of financial trouble and stock prices continue to decline, in 2013... read more

Noble University

There are too many young liberal academic types at Noble that don't know anything about drilling a successful well. They can't see the forest for the trees.

NBL down 9%

Where is the bottom for this company? This is an eight year low going back to the 2009 financial crises and market crash.

August layoffs?

I have read on several forums people mention August as a month some layoffs are expected at Noble. None of it looks too credible though, so I am not sure what to think about it. Has anybody heard anything about this? I would be very grateful for any... read more

Laying off people over 40 was a big mistake

This foolish effort to promote the "kids" became apparent every time upper management said "We are looking for the leaders of tomorrow". Anyone that was paying attention knew at that point if you were 40+ years in age....... your career (with Noble)... read more

Parting words from the MBU

I just have a few points to make. Stop the trash talk please, it’s embarrassing. It reminds me of that uncle at the family reunion that tries to be relevant but nobody listens to him…just stop. If you’re still in, get out. I was nervous when the new... read more


It is sad to see Noble do badly, and I am someone that was laid off after putting many years of sweat into making a company that everyone was proud of. Where did they go wrong? The idea was planted that there is not enough young people to carry on... read more


I wish all of you the best . Hope our path cross again in the future . Houston ..... kiss my A$$!

Noble is still open?

Noble is still open? I thought they filed for bankruptcy and closed down last year. Noble might want to think about auditioning for a role on the Walking Dead so they can make ends meet until someone pokes a stick in its brain.

There is no hope for Noble

Noble is a company for management by management. How many managers have lost their job during this downturn? The answer is none. Yet these are the very people who have run this company into the curb. Yes there are more "s--- asses" at this company... read more

Patina Acquisition - A mistake

I know Noble was a great Oklahoma based Oil company. IMO the mistake made was acquiring Patina and all the baggage that came with it. A good company was introduced to the wild west way of conducting business.


I have worked for Noble for almost 10 years and here is the way I see things. When Noble mostly comprised of old Samedan employees, we got the job done safely, under budget and successfully. We had no requirements for useless a I.T. organization with... read more


Nothing of what you hear and read and maybe half of what you see.

Straight from God's to my ears (God = Stover), we are going to start the process for choosing Noble employees for termination. I am sure the upper management will be safe (I hope so for my sake) but about 30% of the back office will be let go. More... read more

A real Anadarko employee

All i can say is that i work in the financial department here as an upper level manager and there are ZERO plans to purchase Noble Energy.

U want it ...u sure about that

“targeted purchase of their DJ asset and the operational efficiency it might bring. " ...WTF ? There is NOTHING efficient in Noble's DJ Basin. There's a reason they have such a high Noble Energy employee turnover rate here in Greeley... everyone with... read more

Sooner you leave Noble on your own, the better

The sooner Noble employees get laid- off the better off they will be. Working for this sorry company is exhausting. Are we on or fourth or fifth "re-org" now? Most companies had no layoffs or "re-org. Others had one round of layoffs and got on with... read more

Anadarko News

I'm an employee at Anadarko working on the Noble purchase. Dust off your resumes, because the plan is to layoff most of you Noble folk shortly after the purchase is official.

This is no way to do business

As a royalty interest owner Noble is by far the worst operator I am involved with. Recently Noble decided to make an ad-valorem tax adjustment going back to 2008. Naturally it worked out in their favor. I will not receive a royalty check for 5... read more

As for severance don't count on much

Anadarko buying Noble would be like throwing a drowning man a rock, send em straight to the bottom. There's absolutely no value here. Still it would be sweet. Noble field hands MIGHT survive, but Just about everyone else would be toast. After the... read more


Noble has rightly come to the conclusion that they can't go forward. They don't have the talent available to survive. Not only have they laid-off hundreds of employees many more very talented people have left on their own. Most everyone left are... read more

Anadarko (APC) evaluating bid for Noble

Senior management from Noble met twice with their counterparts at Anadarko in the past few days regarding a possible acquisition of NBL by APC, according to sources at both companies. It is not known who initiated the contacts, but sources say the... read more

Burger Energy

Oil is the past for Noble Energy and burgers are the future! Burger Energy! Burger Exploration and Development! Grass fed burgers with no hormones!

More layoffs coming in Sept

the clayton Williams and rosetta employees are subpar, if noble is smart they will layoff those people before the loyal long term noble employees. I have not met a clayton Williams or rosetta person that was worth a darn
