Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Shell full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Collaborative environment, helpful colleagues, bosses who are personally invested in your development, very inclusive people, and job rotations. Shell also walks the diversity talk and diversity... isn't just a check in the box.

Cons

Sometimes a little too collaborative. But the good thing is the decision that comes out of it will more often than not be a good one!
