Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Whitmore Lake, MI
Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Whitmore Lake, MI

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

Pros

They are usually flexible with your hours. The manager will usually work with you and your situation. Sometimes it is close to home.

Cons

Your pay will top out as an assistant manager. You never know if you will be called in to work if someone calls in and you are expected to cover the shift.

    Good place to work, if you aren't a white male or over 50.

    I have been working at Shell

    Pros

    Good pay and good benefits.

    Cons

    Promises made about career development and opportunities aren't honored. Lower graded staff (grade 4 and below) are ignored. Company does a really good job making it seem attractive and competitive to candidates but once you are there you can forget about what you were told. If you are a minority then you might get more focus but otherwise don't expect much. Join the company and get a few years experience under your belt and go to someplace where talent and hard work are appreciated over gender and skin color. If you are a minority, exploit the company's HR processes and make a good career for yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SDevelop a well communicated and thought out business plan. Stop tying up billions of dollars in failed projects and pull out of countries where the risks and exposure are greater than the returns. Develop an executive team that can do a better job of predicting the economic and political uncertainties since the past 15 year track record is laughable. Give time for changes to embed and prove themselves effective (or ineffective) before you make more changes.

    Former Contractor - IT Contractor in Houston, TX
    Former Contractor - IT Contractor in Houston, TX

    I worked at Shell as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    9/80s and somewhat flexible hours.
    Telecommuting can be an option if you are lucky to have the right manager.
    Pay as a contractor was market rate or better.

    Cons

    Nothing major comes to mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the European style of management by committee control projects..
