    I have been working at Shell full-time

    Pros

    Really great people. Company is really trying to lead in the Energy Transition. Lots of great development opportunities, training, and networks.

    Cons

    Inefficient at decision making, Many many layers in a matrix organization

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work with the overall group strategy globally and in Canada.

    Would suggest trying to weave off some layers of roles that include "excellence" this roles seem to normally create less clear outcomes and slow down delivering.
