    I have been working at Shell

    Pros

    Plenty of training oppurtunities, very good support for new grads. Support from managers to work on projects that intersest you. Good pay, good bonus supported for everyone even in middle of oil price crash.

    Cons

    Shell has a lot of bueracracy that has to be navigated each day. There are a lot of divisions in the company that seem to make projects a lot harder than they should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more done to encourage integration between the various teams involved in the same play/project.

    I worked at Shell as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Treats employees like Family and maintains focus.
    Thoroughly provides precise & accurate information.
    Time Management and Communication are powerful tools for Success

    Cons

    There were very few flaws in the company that are never too complex for a team to overcome in a day's work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend more accountability on each individual rather than focusing on the source of the problem. Solutions are better achieved through moving forward and creating production and showing leadership.

    Pros

    There are a lot of pros. You will receive a valuable experience after or till you are studying. You will work in an international environment and make a lot of new contacts. Also you will be able to learn how to schedule your working time and tasks.

    Cons

    You will have to spend at least 6 hours per week. Sometimes you will have to present at a meeting till 21:00 o'clock and participate in the organization's working meetings also.
