    I have been working at Shell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People are mostly intelligent, friendly and capable. Plenty of interesting and challenging work to do, while maintaining good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Lots of unproductive compliance and occasionally overzealous Health & Safety - well-intentioned but sometimes extreme. Need approvals for everything - very slow. HR actively prevents the best people from doing the right jobs for them.

    Advice to Management

    Unleash the potential of your people, allow the best people to work in jobs that suit them. Always aim to improve work efficiency, not increase compliance.

    I worked at Shell full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company pays well and has great benefits for employees. Also it is fundamentally a strong company. It has a decent reputation and I believe that corporate leadership tries to care about the planet more than other companies.

    Cons

    The legal management team is under-skilled and is primarily interested preventing discovery of that fact so that they can preserving their own great salaries and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Give up your seats to people who know the business. It takes more than flag-waving to get value out of the team.
