Former Employee - Senior Buyer  in  Houston, TX
Former Employee - Senior Buyer in Houston, TX

I worked at Shell as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

Brand name everyone knows
9/80 Schedule
Some people are smart and you will make some friends for life

Cons

Micromanagement from people who want to be more than they truly are
People walk around all day for "coffee" and restroom breaks, they can't possibly be working
Many need an "audience" to hear themselves talk
Not what it used to be
Very gossipy and clickish in some areas, a complete turnoff if you don't do "mess"
Not very good if you are a contractor, will not get recognized for what you contribute
Pay is far below competitors
People can take a two hour lunch and no one notices that they are gone for that long

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Place qualified people into management roles
Watch more and listen more, the folks you think that are brilliant are not really

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO
