    I have been working at Shell full-time

    Pros

    Shell has an amazing culture of diversity & inclusion, safety and customer focus.

    Typically, the employees of Shell are it's best attribute. People generally care for each other and place priority on satisfying needs outside of business first.

    Cons

    Good luck being a forward think person with ambitious to drive real improvements. The glacial speed of internal processes will lead to a withdrawal of creativity.

    The company is all talk on driving simplicity and out of the box thinking. Pray to god you can find a job that sparks some passion or else you may be contemplating choosing boredom and a well paying salary or the chance of a fulfilled life elsewhere.

    Pros

    High focus on safety, Good annuity and 401 K plan/contribution.

    Cons

    Large company sometimes undervalues employees. Budget cut. Not equivalent hourly pay compared to outside smaller companies.

    Advice to Management

    Boost pay and incentives. Try to accommodate more to the area in regards to pay, benefits etc. California workers should not have the same wage as employees in Texas. (Cost of living)
