I have been working at Shell

Pros

There is a lot of diversity and growth opportunity for women. There is freedom to share ideas and voice your opinions including staff who are less experienced and even newer graduates. You can contribute and make a difference. There is flexibility at work and mutual respect. They advocate and practice work life balance. This is great when you have a family needing attention .. kids or aging parents to take care of etc.. Finally there is opportunity for growth and of course the compensation is competitive..

Cons

There are a lots of rules. . . . procedures. . . Need to follow paperwork at every stage and the procedures seem to change frequently . . . . . .

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need improvment on knowledge sharing and IT issues

    Pros

    Tremendous 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.

    Cons

    Upper 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 ManagementAdvice

    Don't make detailed or technology decisions without feedback from the experts.

    Pros

    It has a very flexible work hour and mutual respect is an important virtue in the company. If you like to work on great project this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Since it is a big company, good networking is important to maintain a good career prospect. However, if you are not overambitious, there should be little worry that you can keep doing good work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Little if any. But the management does keep employees well informed.
