    I have been working at Shell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great benefits and networks for employees

    Cons

    Could do better in company communications. Senior leaders change over frequently. open resourcing is quite elaborate but if you are not the chosen one it takes and act of congress to land a new position

    Advice to Management

    none

    I have been working at Shell full-time

    Pros

    As a Contractor - Learn quickly in short period of time b/c you either sink or swim. The ability to put Shell on your resume....does wonders. You have the opportunity to make many connections throughout Shell. As an Employee - great pay, benefits, etc. Overall, I think Shell is a great company for its direct employees. As a contractor you have to go in with the mindset that it is a tremendous stepping stone to greater opportunities.

    Cons

    Very defined line between contractors vs direct hire employees. Expect to be a "work horse" as a contractor, with no acknowledgement or reward other than being allowed to enter the building the next day. Management couldn't care less if you stay or leave.

    Advice to Management

    Take more notice in the ENTIRE team. Contractors know that they are contractors. That does not mean you have to treat them as less than when it comes to opinions, changes in job positions, etc. Treating your ENTIRE team with respect and making EVERYONE feel that they are contributing to the groups success makes for a better work environment, less turn over, and most importantly, falls in line with the Shell values of integrity and respect.
