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

    Pros

    The best thing about Shell is the people. I like pretty much everyone I work with and they are all highly competent which makes it fun to go to work. The pay and benefits are also hard to beat especially now that we just implemented the new parental leave policy where women get four months off with pay and men get two months off!

    Cons

    As with any large, multinational corporation, there is a lot of bureaucracy to deal with. It takes a long time to get certain things done and there are a lot of approvals involved.

    Advice to Management

    The main piece of advice I have is that it really shouldn't be necessary to go through a major reorganization every couple of years. Doing this too often makes it difficult to even tell if the previous organization worked because it hasn't been stable long enough.
