I have been working at Shell full-time (More than 5 years)

Strength of organization. Vision and strategy.

Cons

Bureaucratic. Many actions don't align to vision & strategy. Middle-management often more concerned about managing up rather than subordinates

    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 !!!
