    Pros

    Shell provides a technically challenging work environment. There are many opportunities to learn about and implement highly interesting technical completions solutions.

    Cons

    Shell promotes a very competitive work environment. Political acumen is certainly required if an employee expects to be successful in their climb to the top of the organization. The ability to influence decisions and compete with team members is highly valued at Shell. Work life balance gets lip service at best. High performers work night and day.
