    Current Employee - Finance Intern in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Shell as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities for nearly anyone
    Pay is exceptional
    Moving expenses are paid for

    Cons

    Corporate bureaucratic gridlock is HUGE
    IT issues happen once a week and take weeks to fix often leading to inability to perform job functions
    Managers are fairly complacent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge the status quo of IT issues and other departments dictating the work flow; don't allow week long issues to fester and make sure that the subordinates can actually do their job.

    Current Employee - I T Business Analyst  in  Houston, TX
    Current Employee - I T Business Analyst in Houston, TX

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

    Pros

    Knowledgeable people, good culture, easy to work with others.

    Cons

    As a contractor, little or no opportunity to convert to an employee. Antiquated processes with newer technology makes for a strange mix. Hesitancy to adopt new processes and technical solutions. I.T. difficult to work with and navigate towards a solution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For technology, work closely with upstream for best practices and tools.
