I worked at Shell

Pros

Good pay and beneifts and I would have stayed longer if they were not moving the positions to India. Was allowed to work on challenging assignments.

Cons

Moving finance function overseas, so there was no room for advancement within the company only the realization that our jobs would end sometime in the near future.

    I have been working at Shell

    Pros

    The people at Shell are generally very top notch, smart and friendly. This makes the working environment very nice and comfortable.

    Cons

    Career opportunities are getting more limited with little to none developmental programs in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mgmt often lacks decision making prowess, ie quick, decisive actions based on available information. There is always too much fear of being wrong versus ability to accept mistakes.

    I worked at Shell

    Pros

    Excellent pay, benefits, bonus, education reimbursement, opportunities to work across divisions

    Cons

    Too hung up on estimated potential of staff for promotion/hiring decisions, lack of consistent evaluation method for performance reviews, poor people skills of most manager/sr managers,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop getting hung up on performance factors and current estimated potential factors used to select potential candidates. Instead base on actual achievements. Stop trying to be like Exxon!
