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

    Pros

    Work life balance, 401k matching after 9 years is excellent. Great salary, Strong commitment to safety. Friendly people. Lots of opportunities to travel or change career paths. Open resourcing allows to bid on next assignment ( also in cons). World class engineers and technology being used. Working in the cutting edge of technology upstream or downstream.

    Cons

    Field and plant facilities tend to be high stress. Unplanned shutdowns or events lead to long hours. Weak development program for experienced new hires. Graduate development is not the best but is improving. Difficult to make quick decisions without many managers buy in. Focus on safety can be excessive or be taken advantage of. DIY Career development programs lead to a non proactive HR.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the core competences of the business become more disciplined managers. Continue focus on lean and reliability improvement. Workers are being overloaded with non essential tasks, online classes safe driving, time sheets, etc etc. Push back on the Do it yourself trends and online learning.
