    Uncertain outlook in the industry means budget cuts and low job security.

    I have been working at BG Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    BG is a good company. I have worked for BG since 2012 in the UK and states. Our new CEO just started (March 2015) when Shell made an offer which no one could refuse. BG is a very diverse company and it prides itself on this diversity to be successful. Good people work at BG and hope many will be taken by Shell. Unfortunately, Shell and BG are suffering from the effects of the oil market collapse. It's sad to see BG go but a good company, Shell, bought us.

    Cons

    BG is a relatively flat organization: lots of creativity but not too many opportunities to grow vertically.

    Advice to Management

    To Shell: I hope you see the great potential in BG employees to help you transform (new) Shell.
