    I worked at Noble Group Limited full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice colleagues, interesting work, great learning and business experience, good remuneration

    Cons

    The company changed, and many of the experienced and knowledgeable staff moved on or were made redundant, but not replaced. This left the business top heavy in management and an unhappy workforce overstretched to their limits left behind

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Noble Group Limited full-time

    Pros

    Relatively short working hours for the commodity industry and good internal movement prospects. Good place to get a foot in the door in the commodity industry.

    Cons

    Very unorganised systems, company had a spectacular growth but never updated its systems to be able to deal with it.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on making the systems and processes more lean and better suited to the companies specific needs and generalise the systems across all offices.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Noble Group Limited full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good location, decent work-life balance, laid-back friendly staff. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Really heavy on staff redundancies over the past year and a high staff turnover rate in general. Very low office morale. Also, way too much in the way of office politics and a lack of transparency. HR could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Tone down the office politics. Many staff members have no idea what's going on or even who does what in the office they work in. More transparency is needed.

    I have been working at Noble Group Limited full-time

    Pros

    Relatively laid back environment, some departments had good communication from senior management

    Cons

    Personally, didn't feel there was much investment in employee professional development. Pay wasn't amazing as well

    Advice to Management

    Implement knowledge sharing initiatives and maybe some formal professional development structures

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Noble Group Limited

    Pros

    Generally very decent and friendly colleagues, some with excellent skill sets and industry experience.

    Cons

    Non-existent culture. Political and poor middle and upper management (with the positive exceptions being the actual real money makers in the business (which were rare)). Play the cynical game and take home the monthly pay-check. Terrible HR.

    Advice to Management

    Give a dam about character, values and integrity. If you had, you wouldn't be in the mess you're in/technically insolvent.

    I worked at Noble Group Limited

    Pros

    I worked with some fantastically talented developers, architects and consultants on a genuinely exciting cutting edge project using some of the latest open source technology.

    Cons

    The company invested heavily in the project only to cut it and everybody involved due to some poor financial results. All the money, time, and talent in the bin.

    Advice to Management

    Think more strategically rather than tactically
