I have been working at Shell full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Flexible hours. Get to know people from the community that you work in. Tends to be a very low stress job even from a management position. Very easy to get time off as needed. Pay is higher than average to start.

Cons

Not much room from personal growth. Overly lax on policy which is not standardized. Success and sales growth not translated to anyone under the manager.

    I worked at Shell full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good people in general to work with.

    Cons

    People are afraid to speak up in general unlike rest of Shell outside the USA. Workload can require weekend work as well.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out matrix organization and clarify roles and responsibilities. Considering setting up US business unit as as more independent business unit without having to report on everything to London or The Hague; this will make the company more nimble and responsive and will improve the culture.
