      Good salary on papers but as there is no tax benefit (not even LTA) your net pay is very less. If you are lucky to get a good boss, you are set, otherwise get ready to be fired anytime for any frivolous reason


      Indian management is crap and misusing Shell policy. If you earn high, India HR will identify you and will give some aliby to fire you anytime to show "cost saving" & "realignment policy". No chance of any promotion even after 4 years, unless you keep your oil machine to Indian management running. Even for health reason, they can fire you shedding crocodile tears. Discrimination is rampant and Indian Senior management is not trustworthy

        Great benefits. Salaries are good (they used to be better). Flexible working available. If you are someone who is looking for a safe, average salary this is your place. If you want to stick with a very small piece of something big and nevery become an expert on anything, do apply. For new joiners: Graduate Scheme used to be top class. Now it is a collection of 2nd class millenials with low salaries and an extremely bad structured scheme. I have not met a single happy graduate in the last 6 years. Save yourself sometime and start working in a field you field passionate about.


        Mediocre HR. The vast majority of the people do not really know what is it that they are doing. I have been working for the company for the last 16 years and I have seen how a great company goes down as one of the less exciting places to be on earth. Innovators, entrepeneurs, knowledge seekers are going to be swallowed by a very conservative corporate culture where guys that do not even know how to turn off an iphone are managing IT departmens or innovation innitiatives. For new joiners: They will tell you there are overseas opportunities, there are none. I am a senior manager in the company and even at that level, expat positions (or short term international assignments "STIA" are almost non-existent). For experienced hires: You will join with lots of promises being made, but reality is that you will be stuck in the same "job group" for 4 - 5 years when the average Shell employee is moving up the ladder every 2- 3 years. Once you are due for a promotion, they will trigger a "re-organization" and you will recieve a redundancy letter that will (mentally) force you to say yes to any internal offer they will throw at you. Be aware of HR. Really.

      I got an offer from Amazon with a start date of mid-Nov. I already have an important vacation planned for a month from mid-Dec to mid-Jan. What should I do?

      Just finished a case interview. Overall, I thought it went well but was a little confused at one of the charts they showed. After I provided my recommendation the interviewed said "great job" then moved on to questions. Is this a good sign to is this something that is commonly said by interviewers?

      What do you do to not think negatively when waiting for a response after interviews? How long do you wait to for them to respond before you do?
