    Pros

    Wonderful compensation. They provide you with a buddy and a mentor to guide you throughout the internship. There are a lot of opportunites to learn and it is very well structured.

    Cons

    The final presentation is a very particualt. There is also a required ETRAY exam along with a supervisor evaluation. If you do not get a full time offer, they do not let you know where you messed up.

    Pros

    Very good culture, great management, good pay, good vacation package, supporting charities. I learnt a lot from senior engineers, good training programs, good opportunity for new grad

    Cons

    Oil price low impacts part of the business, hopefully this is only temporary, but luckily Shell is a diverse enough company to hedge the risk of low oil price. Sometimes there are some company politics new people need to take care of.

    Pros

    Pay, work life balance, benefits. Top level associates. Great common goal and culture. Great vacation plan bonus and stock purchase plan.

    Cons

    Decision making process is slow and cumbersome. Many opportunities are located in Houston only. Most managers have not been promoted up through the ranks so they have limited knowledge of what it takes to get the job done.

    Shell is a huge organization with diverse opportunities throughout the world in almost every field. Very respectful workplace. Above average social benefits.

    Shell has its own way of doing things and it is not easy to change it. Financial benefits in Istanbul are not competitive with its rivals or other major industries.
