    Pros

    Great opportunities, great pay and benefits. Generally smart and hardworking colleagues.

    Cons

    Overly process oriented, terrible work-life balance, too consensus driven so decisions take a long time. IT technology is way behind.

    Pros

    You take every other Friday off; which means you have a vacation every two weeks. Few benefits are better than that.

    Cons

    There is a consensus culture in Shell meaning you have to talk with 20 people to make a decision. It is a double edged sword

    Advice to Management

    You guys are awesome

    Pros

    The best things about Shell is the 9/80 work schedule and pay. Lot of opportunity for working abroad and moving roles.

    Cons

    There are too many processes. In the Regulatory/Environmental field, it is still a developing business and yet they still try to make you fit into theor competency models, but the models are not fully developed. Additionally, they want globally for everyone to have the same competencies, however, offshore in US and Onshore Gambia are just not the same regulations.

    Advice to Management

    Shell does not need more processes, it needs people to follow the proceesses in place.

    Pros

    Fantastic work environment and office amenities, as well as engaging and varied intern assignments are a plus. With so many departments, focus areas, and products, *in theory*, you should have plenty of opportunity to grow your career (horizontally or vertically). In practice, not true.

    Cons

    As with all companies of this size, especially here, there is constant change and for those that thrive in such places will enjoy working and others would feel frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Some advice to management may be to make communication training and activities mandatary for all employees to attend, including management.

    Pros

    nice boss and most of staff are knowledgeable, decent people. free sodas for cashiers. nice customers most of the time. Safe place to work. Only fun & enjoyable days if u make the most of it in ur own special ways..... etc.

    Cons

    no free water for hard working, sweaty car wash guys outside. Bad pay starting at minimum wage and will never go up unless you beg for it. gain weight eating crappy food all day, plus no breaks for Anyone. Some guys are dirty with female staff, etc. boring when its slow.... Car Spa guys shouldn't have to be forced to work outside when its around 5 degrees or anything below 0 degrees!

    Advice to Management

    more consistent training for cashiers. better communication throughout. give ALL employees free water out of soda fountain so they don't pass out during hot summer months!!! Starting pay rate should be based on any individual's experience. No1 can live off minimum wage!! Benefit's would be nice. And yearly possible wage increase should be more frequent so people don't want to quit so much


  11. Good team environment
