    I have been working at BG Group full-time for 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.

    I have been working at BG Group

    Pros

    One of the best benefits you'll find in the market, even in the competitive super major oil & gas world, the benefit is top notch. Never seen other companies offer as good of 401k match as this place. Great cash bonus and share bonus. Flexible dollars paid to employees. Even offer dependent care reimbursement, huge plus. They really take care of their employees here.

    Cons

    Bought out by Shell, the company won't be around after this month.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at BG Group

    Pros

    Company with interesting business portfolio. Great place to work if you are British national. If you are American not likely good. Salaries are good. Later you realize that they pay good based on what awaits to you.

    Cons

    A management with a big dark side. Projects never sanction. Only the Brits are protected. Only the Brits know what is going on with the company. Nobody cares for the company finances. HR team is very evil. Be careful with an Asian HR consultant (very nasty guy)

    Advice to Management

    Be ready for Shell takeover.

    I worked at BG Group for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent salary, some good people doing the required work keeping the company afloat. Houston office is impressive, nice work out facilities.

    Cons

    Amazing that this poorly led company ever reached this level. The only saving grace is that Shell will probably clear out those incompetent leaders due to synergies. Could have been a great long lasting company if they had recognized their incompetence early and corrected those problems.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror and recognize your incompetence.
