I worked at Shell full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The hours were good, I had a good work life balance. It's a pretty easy job, as long as you're good on excel and the computer, as well as book keeping.

Cons

There isnt really much room to move up. This is a great job for someone who is married and isnt the only breadwinner in the family. Other than that I think it was a decent job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should get commission on sales, or profit sharing benefits.

    I worked at Shell full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Shell for 7 years and then went to another oil major. It's culture, pay, benefits and focus on people is what I loved most about my time there. Diversity and inclusion was far more mature than most corporations.

    Cons

    My last role was challenging as I tried to balance the birth of my first child. I left for better more progressive "parent" benefits like on site day care and less travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider promotions for internal folks. You don't need someone with 30 years to lead a team nor should you have to leave the company to be promoted. Use the talent you've invested! I think most of the colleagues I spoke with feel a bit stifled in role and want advancement.
