    Current Employee - Engineering Intern in Sewickley, PA
    Current Employee - Engineering Intern in Sewickley, PA

    I have been working at Shell as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Looks great in your resume. A lot to learn on your own. If you are no more than 2 years to get your college degree can lead you to another internship; otherwise no renewal of internship.

    Cons

    Hard to find affordable housing. Lack of training: You are given a computer and manuals and do it yourself. You are suppose to know as much as a Doctor in your field. Very little support from buddy or supervisor. A lot of books to read. Hostile work environment. Not friendly at all. Process oriented. Poor training. Expect a lot from you. Advancement is based if they like you or not. Intern salary really low for a big oil company. No housing provided so you are on your own with only $5,000 allowance (not enough money to help you with relocation and housing). No life work balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do not put young recent college graduates with no experience as buddies or supervisors since they do not know hot to treat interns with respect and they do not have enough technical knowledge to train interns.

    Pros

    great benefits and networks for employees

    Cons

    Could do better in company communications. Senior leaders change over frequently. open resourcing is quite elaborate but if you are not the chosen one it takes and act of congress to land a new position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none
