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

Pros

Flexible hours. Get to know people from the community that you work in. Tends to be a very low stress job even from a management position. Very easy to get time off as needed. Pay is higher than average to start.

Cons

Not much room from personal growth. Overly lax on policy which is not standardized. Success and sales growth not translated to anyone under the manager.

    I have been working at Shell full-time

    Pros

    As a Contractor - Learn quickly in short period of time b/c you either sink or swim. The ability to put Shell on your resume....does wonders. You have the opportunity to make many connections throughout Shell. As an Employee - great pay, benefits, etc. Overall, I think Shell is a great company for its direct employees. As a contractor you have to go in with the mindset that it is a tremendous stepping stone to greater opportunities.

    Cons

    Very defined line between contractors vs direct hire employees. Expect to be a "work horse" as a contractor, with no acknowledgement or reward other than being allowed to enter the building the next day. Management couldn't care less if you stay or leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more notice in the ENTIRE team. Contractors know that they are contractors. That does not mean you have to treat them as less than when it comes to opinions, changes in job positions, etc. Treating your ENTIRE team with respect and making EVERYONE feel that they are contributing to the groups success makes for a better work environment, less turn over, and most importantly, falls in line with the Shell values of integrity and respect.
