    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England

    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

    I worked at Noble Group Limited full-time

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

    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.
