    Pros

    Good training experience Looks good on payper

    Cons

    Policy of solely contact hire leaves workers with no chance of permanent hire even though constantly baited with this promise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the long-term gain of permanent hire versus the revolving door of hiring and retraining contract workers-loyalty and constancy!

    I have been working at Shell Canada as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Learning about how such a massive company does business, and how their information flows. It's almost like being part of a government. Every decision is methodical, and passes through many gates. As an information manager, it's a unique opportunity to see how such a company functions.

    Cons

    you can feel lost in the shuffle, the corporate culture is quite formal and dry. Hard to make connections and friends in this organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Peter Voser, former CEO said it best. We must drive out the complexity of the business. The processes are confusing, overlapping and needlessly complex... and therefore expensive and inefficient.
