    I worked at Shell full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!

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

    I have been working at Shell as an intern for more than a 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.
