I have been working at Shell

Pros

Great compensation, and diverse job opportunities. Reasonable work life balance, depending on the type of career you are looking to have.

Cons

If you are looking for advancement, there is less opportunity to balance work and career. More "Europe focused" leadership and development.

    I have been working at Shell full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good salary, 9/80 schedule, investment on people and technology, benefits, life balance, opportunities to work internationally, highly skilled professionals, upper management is ok

    Cons

    Organization is still quite complex. Additional changes are required to truly simplify the company and make it more competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not hesitate to make the changes that will be good for the company and most importantly stake holders

    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.
