    Pros

    It was alright - not bad hours. the gym is actually pretty nice. the new buildings will be nice as well and the cafeteria isn't too bad

    Cons

    too much beauracracy at the place -- i would try and have the young people in higher positions than they are currently placed in. ugly buildings (old ones)


  2. "Nice old oil company."

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

    Pros

    Their benefits are really good if you've worked there a long time. The work is ok, and the salary is competitive. Everyone does their own little part. Sometimes you get to do different types of work because they have offshored some jobs(and that never works out because of time zone issues, communication issues, etc). Shell cares more about safety/training/compliance than anything else(especially making money).

    Cons

    It's very bureaucratic. If the benefits are the one of the biggest pros, it doesn't say much about Shell. You'll never feel empowered to do much because you'll be restricted by 20 other departments, half of which have been outsourced. It's not a good place unless you're an engineer. Everything else is getting offshored, outsourced or eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    The IT department is ruining the company with its bureacracy. Shell is also wasting too much on consultants.
