    I worked at Shell Global Solutions as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology! Colleagues were friendly and helpful. Beautiful offices and campus. Cafeteria onsite.

    Cons

    Not much to say except the technology location is high density area so commute was a little longer than I like but since it was a short term project it was bearable.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Shell Global Solutions

    Pros

    The salary is good, there are many good technical people here, and the work is interesting. It feels like I can make a difference for the company if i do good work, and I am rewarded well for doing good work.

    Cons

    There is a lot of paper work in Shell it seems very difficult to get all of the different computer systems to work, and you are always having to contact people in Holland to get something done. They're constantly getting on your case about being chargeable, which I guess is to be expected in a consulting business like this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The knowledge sharing could be a lot better.

    Former Employee - IT Operations Management in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Shell Global Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with and Shell is very selective about who they take on. Very mature IT processes and pioneering in IT management.

    Cons

    The company is huge and it is initially very tough to become productive in such a large ecosystem. You will be very dependant on having a line manager who recognises the learning curve and invests the required time in you to ensure you are effective in your working environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Line managers should be actively monitored on their new starters development and SMART goals need to be established by senior management to ensure new Shell employees receive the right amount of support
