    I worked at Shell full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pays well and there are some great, intelligent people to work with. Peers are really what made work bearable.

    Cons

    There are terrible people to work FOR. Advancement is based on who you know and how much you "deliver", even if what you deliver is only the minimum to move things along. This is how bad managers are able to become managers.

    For a company that claims to be innovative, it is sadly behind the curve. No one really wants to improve processes or be revolutionary, they just want to get things done.

    Don't expect special career or development opportunities unless you are a "chosen one."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get away from group think. Stay true to your message of diversity and appreciate diversity of thought.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
