I worked at Shell

Pros

Shell was a great work experience. The work environment was fair, respectful, and motivating. The daily work changed constantly, presenting challenges that kept me engaged. The pay and benefits are at the top of the industry. I am proud to have worked for and remain associated with this company.

Cons

Elimination of the retail channel I worked. Business strategies seemed to be move of a moving target than a concrete plan that we could stick to and drive the business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would anticipate a need for a retail channel sometime in the future. I also believe that bio fuel and charging stations are now the "big box" fear that eliminated the retail channel, will eventually have a changing impact on the downstream market sooner than realized.

    Pros

    Good total compensation package and not too bad people around.

    Cons

    Too many re-organizatons! And you have to have a very good network.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be more inclusive and nurture talents instead of showing favoritism to friends.

    Wonderful place to be exposed to lots of technical areas fast. A "learning organization".

    I worked at Shell

    Pros

    Lots of good training.
    Excellent presentations on multiple technical projects.
    Lots of diverse projects to get involved in.

    Cons

    Being seen in best political light is very important.
    Company is not always fair in handling promotions / layoffs.
    Good work, performance are not always rewarded; politics are more important.
    Probably a good place to stay for a few years before moving on, for most people.
    Too big and impersonal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some risks in new plays, or the company may die.
