    I worked at Shell as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large Dutch Company. Plenty of opportunities to work in different areas...if you are an employee...

    Cons

    Lack of diversity, Poor treatment of contract staff, heavily geared towards rewarding relationships versus merit of work.

    Advice to Management

    Review controls behind benchmarks and who provides them, figure out how to get the real data from the business without being "normalized" by subordinates. Decisions are being made off of heavily massaged information.

    I worked at Shell full-time

    Pros

    former co-workers was about the only great experience there.

    Cons

    Never ordered the correct kitchen utensils, kitchen was filthy full of grease along the edges of the wall where fryer and grill were located. Top of grill had like layers of burnt food on it, they had a grill scrapper but blade was broken, manager never replaced blade. Manager would be only in office just watching videos on his phone. You couldn't bother the manager for anything important because he would always catch an attitude with employees. Always ran out of sanitary and hygenic products like; toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, and gloves.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the manager

    I worked at Shell full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not really any pros as the place does not strive to keep their workers.

    Cons

    Managers abuses schedules , favouritism, unmaintained equipments, place looks like it is falling apart, high turn over

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to go on courses on how to properly manage their environment and pay heed to staff when suggestions are given to improve work place. Also not to make it so obvious they are giving themselves shifts they want and that they should know who to call in to cover a shift.

    Pros

    It's good for young people that don't have many bills and a flexible scheduel. Great if you need job experience.

    Cons

    Thankless job with no benefits and minimal pay. Customers are usually rude and messy. You don't get a lunch break, you just eat when you can.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with some dignity and offer some benefits to employees other than management.

    I worked at Shell (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good overall engineering discipline procedures. Good access to discipline leads. Knowledgeable construction team for field work but difficult to work with operations groups.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, must know what to kiss and when in order to move up. Many of the hard workers are not acknowledged.

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice for management to take a deeper dive into the unprofessional workers who report to them - in order to ensure fair and proper treatment of employees.
