    I have been working at Shell full-time

    Pros

    Great company that means well and has a lot to offer but not necessarily what you would expect.

    Cons

    At least, where I work specifically and the position I have it does not pay well and benefits are nothing special. I have not been given a raise in four to five years and took two to three years for me to finally get just 2 weeks of vacation.
