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.

    I worked at Shell as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology! Colleagues were friendly and helpful. Beautiful offices and campus. Cafeteria onsite.

    Cons

    Not much to say except the technology location is high density area so commute was a little longer than I like but since it was a short term project it was bearable.


  2. "Great place to work for an entry-level engineer"

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

    Pros

    Collaborative/team environment, friendly work culture, excellent salary and benefits, work-life balance (9/80 work schedule), training opportunities

    Cons

    Can be bureaucratic and political at times, coaching for training and career planning could have been better, during (and after) my tenure there was a lot of movement out of downstream into upstream, which could be a sign of either low morale or poor career opportunities compared to other parts of the business
