Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Shell full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good pay and benefits, but you pay dearly for them.

Cons

Upper Management doesn't care about their field employee's and the competitive condition's they face every day versus other retail and wholesale oil marketer's. They think that Shell is the only brand worth anything and that the brand should open doors and enable you to make sales with very little support, just a lot of scrutiny and negative feedback.

Advice to Management

Wake up and realize that Shell is NOT the wonderful brand you think it is here in the United States. Outside of the major metro area's (LA, SF, Chicago, etc.), Shell is not the only brand in the marketplace. There are too many independent brands that the public would prefer to buy from due to Shell's street high pricing. Get a clue !!!

    I have been working at Shell full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent work environment. Safety first. Managers have respect for others. Good work life balance. Excellent benefits. Very transparent. Good promotion opportunities.

    Cons

    As with most large companies, business decisions can often be slow. Sometimes decisions that affect North America are made from the Netherlands that may not make common sense.
