I have been working at Shell as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Very refreshing to see a company with such a healthy attitude about work/life balance. For such a huge corporation, it doesn't feel like someone is hovering over me, asking WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR ME LATELY. I've been here a year and still amazed at how many times I'm thanked for just doing my job. I'm able to contact whoever I need to help me get my job done, without having to go through the chain of command In my position here I actually feel like I'm making a difference and a positive contribution to the company.

Cons

Working as a contractor with a 2 year limit. No degree, no conversion. :(

    Pros

    In general, a good paymaster and take care of its employees. Takes account for the inclusiveness, diversity and local cultures and traditions and an equal opportunity employer

    Cons

    Not much individual attention on employee's career path unlike some of the other leading multinationals unless the staff exceptional. In adequate succession planning and career path definition. Reluctant on cross country postings and transfers esp in the east side of the world.

    Advice to Management

    Improve speedy of decision making.
