    I worked at Shell Canada

    Pros

    The experience and salary were excellent for university students. Their coop program included seminars on career planning. Co-workers were generally helpful in providing assistance to coops.

    Cons

    No benefits available to coop students (sucks when you require expensive dental work). Coworker interaction outside of work was limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a benefits package to coop students. The other support they receive is nice, but medical and dental plans would be a big plus.

    I have been working at Shell Canada

    Pros

    -Good pay and respect employees in regards to work/balance life..
    - Loves those flex days
    - Benefits are not too bad..

    Cons

    - Sometimes upper management makes poor decisions
    - Company in a shift to global model means jobs losses here in North America.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop shipping out jobs to overseas or you will lose valuable and knowledgable employees.. Plus, it affects loyalty and morale...
