At Shell, we believe in offering a competitive and contemporary benefits package that focuses on individual choice based on personal needs and preferences.
Our “Care and Protection” benefits emphasize improving the health and quality of life for our employees and their families, as well as flexibility and personal development. We offer competitive annual leave packages and do all we can to accommodate career breaks and sabbaticals in countries where these are applicable. To help you balance work and life, we consider flexible working pattern requests whenever possible; including working hours and in some cases working from home.
In addition to annual leave benefits, Shell is proud to be the first major integrated oil and gas company to introduce a new global standard of 16 weeks paid maternity leave. This initiative is intended to support working mothers and their families. Furthermore, Shell has broadened the scope to include fathers and adoptive parents. This change has been made to provide employees greater flexibility in balancing work and family and to ensure that we can attract and retain the diverse talent we need to continue as an industry leader.
Our "Wealth" benefits include Pension, Savings, and Employee Share Purchase Plans. These programs promote financial security through competitive employer contributions and attractive opportunities for employee participation.
Current and former employees report that Shell provides the following benefits. It may not be complete.

Everything was great while working there
Good medical benefits and coverage
Great 401K contribution and unmatched medical benefits.
Excellent 401k with company contributions up to 10% based on service time. Excellent health insurance with access to world class care.
HR Job Postings
Laid off and am still kind of shell shocked. I have some breathing room with severance but I'm stressed to find a new role quickly but I know I don't want to stick with recruitment. Local to south Florida, open to remote. I think I'd love to work with more strategic planning, as a compensation manager or even in an HRBP role that was partly related to recruiting. I'd also be happy to stick with recruitment if I could only focus on corporate and executive level roles. I am so burnt out though.
Great company with good career progression
Great benefits. Tries its best to do the right thing.
+ housing, business class travel - dental not included into insurance
Good benefits unmatched by many
Great insurance, pension and 401k benefits!
Excellent benefits for employees with more than 20 years experience, believe total compensation started to decrease in the mid 2000's
