    Pros

    Salary, culture, principles, safety, teamwork

    Cons

    lack of leadership in the market, sometimes the management seems lost and they copy other companies, it is lack of personality in their decisions.

    Advice to Management

    avoid trends, transform Shell in the company used to be in 1972-80s. Be more agile on decisions, avoid being the government and became the company you can be.
