I worked at Shell full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The hours were good, I had a good work life balance. It's a pretty easy job, as long as you're good on excel and the computer, as well as book keeping.

Cons

There isnt really much room to move up. This is a great job for someone who is married and isnt the only breadwinner in the family. Other than that I think it was a decent job.

Advice to Management

Management should get commission on sales, or profit sharing benefits.

    I have been working at Shell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The name, Shell. The name opens many doors and impresses.

    Cons

    Shell has a new fatigue policy for some reason. No other chemical company has such a policy and it is crazy. No one likes it and no one wants it. I'm not even sure if management is a fan of it. Shell has proven time and time again that it wants to be the best. But by being the best they have to try every outlandish and unproven idea and employees pay the price for it. Unfortunately, this has caused a bad vibe/opinion of Shell.

    Advice to Management

    Improve training for one thing. All Shell Deer Park wants is warm bodies. Even on the control board. The control board is manned by management approved individuals. And all they want is yes men. In the event of a full-blown crisis, we will not have the experience or the know-how to handle a situation. Especially in the next few years when the real operators retire.
