    I worked at Shell full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good company, mostly stable and fair compared to other operators in oil and gas. Very good people to work with.

    Cons

    Very big corporation, makes it difficult to make a noticeable contribution. Too many people equals slowness in making decisions, too many meetings and boxes to check.

    I have been working at Shell full-time

    Pros

    Shell Global is an amazing company to work for.

    Cons

    The Shell Sarnia Leadership Team is one of the worst I've ever seen over my entire career, very disorganized and treat "SOME" of there employees like garbage.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees, staff and contractors with respect! Stop the backstabbing and favoritism. The moral on site is extremely poor, the worst I've seen it in 13 years.
