I have been working at Shell full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

The benefit package, one of the best in the industry. Company takes good care of employees by providing great medical benefits, pension, 401K and other investing opportunities, work-life balance, 9/80's, low cost child-care, discount programs, healthy lifestyle discounts, list is endless, ect. Company provides employes all the tools for work and encouranges employee participation in many townhalls, keeping employees up to date on business results and goals. Overall good managers who help guide your career. Many tools for self improvement on personal and professional level.

Cons

Engineers/Technical folks tend to "work in silo". They tend to cause alot of miscommunication and rework.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Monetary recognition awards on a local level to encourage employees who go above and beyond.

    I have been working at Shell full-time for more than a 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.

    I have been working at Shell full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Generally hire top quartile grads with great potential. Not a place for the dimwitted or the lazy. Many advancement opportunities for those who seek it and work the extra hours. High expectations for performance and thoroughness to advance.

    Cons

    With emphasis on standardized work processes to lower costs, individuality becomes difficult. HR system seems to favor only management oriented profiles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The body is many parts not just the head. Advancement should recognize that different jobs require different types of people not just those who score high on standardized CAR (Capacity, Aptitude, Relationships) assessments. I
