Shell - A stong company for a career

Manager (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsTremendous amount of empowerment. The more successful you are, the more you can do.
The people of Shell are tremendous to work with.
9/80 days are a real benefit (Trading - Lubes - Get with it...)
Senior management is making a real effort to communicate to the employees, at all levels.
Shell gets diversity. The most progressive of companies of all the ones I intimately know.
Great information sharing. Very few co-workers that hoard information.
Commitment of recruiting talent by VERY senior management.

ConsUpper management gets it. First level supervision and management generally get it. Sometimes it is weak in-between. (Upside is that this generally corrects itself)

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't make detailed or technology decisions without feedback from the experts.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Number one priority is always safety -- for the public as well as the employee and contractor.
