I have been working at Shell full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Extremely friendly colleagues. Felt like family. Great work life balance. Respect at all levels, up and down. Management is very approachable. Intra-company communication is excellent.

Cons

Many people stuck in old ways and extremely resistant to change. Slow job progression. Seems like some get promoted over others with unclear reasoning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be afraid to push some employees into the 21st century. They will adapt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
