    World Class Corp. that does many things well. Many opportunities to move career path and location. Shell is committed to workplace safety to some degree. They pay well and occasionally recognize great performance. Work life balance is good.


    The management structure is very narrow with too many managers and not enough workers, so when productivity appears low or a new CEO arrives, then a new or recycled program/reorganization gets implemented. This can be frustrating because these decisions always come from the top down without any input from the people doing the work. Highly technical people are not appreciated or respected unless you are a manager of technical people. Getting ideas implemented can be a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the layers of management. If top paying career paths are only managers, then you will only be left with managers. Your top performing technical people will leave.

    Interview Details

    All behavioral questions. They like people with some leadership qualities. The interviewer will spend a lot of time writing notes, but that's pretty common. The process was pretty casual and straightforward.
