Pros

High sense support and promotion of professional growth. This company has it figured out when it comes to making all team members feel valued

Cons

They need to be more open to newer technology. The old guard must get with the times and tech or they will lag in overall productivity. Every shut-in is avoidable in one form or another and there are so many tools at their disposal.

Advice to Management

It's well known that most technology developers want a piece of the oilfield action. As a professional that spent a lot of time on 9 Deep water TLP's and several shelf rigs, I implore the management of SHELL EP Americas to please utilize all available technology to maximize all of your Safety and Profitability goals. However, I did see a large knowledge gap between upper (shore side) management and offshore management. I would like to see more high level tech training for offshore personnel. Other than that, keep up the great work!

    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.

    Not a positive experience for contractors, great for direct employees.

    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 Management

    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.
