    I have been working at Shell full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are on par with other companies of this size. Performance is rewarded and there are constant opportunities to expand and grow. Management is transparent and open to new ideas.

    Cons

    As a typical large company they are slow to change and frequently rehash/rename old programs that didn't work the first time around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most locations are severely understaffed and the quality of work performed by oversees contracts fails to meet expectations but is masked by fluffed metrics. Take some time to build back up the workforce and hire experienced workers.

    I worked at Shell full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Money, 9/80 Schedule, Long Term Benefits. Work is easy, very low expectations to achieve a normal rating. Can get paid a grip to sit on your butt, and crank out paperwork. Easy to be forgotten and have a good paying job doing minimal work if that is what you want. Healthcare benefits are good but expensive ($560 per month for health,dental, and vision)

    Cons

    Work is mindless due to all the complicated processes. No efficiency, no teamwork, no innovation. Engineers in the PTSE or RE roles are really admins. Most of these good reviews for Shell have to be for the Upstream business, because Shell Deer Park is the worst Manufacturing Site I have ever worked at for reliablity, safety, or cost control. If you are a go getter or like to bring new stuff and ways of doing things stay far far away, you will hate working at Deer Park. Don't believe the Shell Hype!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Shell as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly, open door atmosphere. There is so much to learn every day. Networking is a big part of the culture.

    Cons

    If you do not have an idea of how you want to develop, there is not much to lean on. It's up to you to create your own career development plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really do not have anything else to add. They are continuously making improvements already. Leadership opportunities are abundant there.
