    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Shell full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You have to put up with all the large company BS: politics, big egos in management, bureaucratic processes that slow everything down, etc. But, all said, the company takes good care of employees, work-life balance is great, and safety is hammered into everyone - whether they like it or not.

    Cons

    As I said in 'pros', above: the bureaucracy of the large company is a negative. Hard to get away from that. There are also some jerks at high levels. Again, a symptom of the corporate environment.
